CIMA set to Byrne

CIMA has elected certified accountant Harry Byrne its new president, the second board member to have qualified outside the institute, joining chartered accountant chief executive Charles Tilley.

The ACCA fellow, who also qualified with CIMA, is currently one of Ireland’s representatives on the European Union’s Economic and Social Committee. The new president spent most of his career working for the Guinness Ireland Group.

Byrne said: ‘Our priority over the next twelve months is to continue to develop our range of qualifications and support, to ensure that our members and students continue to add value to the strategic direction of businesses to the highest professional standards.’

The institute has also unveiled a new qualification framework, which includes the Certificate in Business Accounting and the CIMA Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting.

According to Byrne the new framework will reassure employers that CIMA products ‘deliver full service financial management training, from technician level through to post membership.’
