ACCA chief executive unveiled

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants today named BBC World Service finance director Andrew Hind as its new chief executive.

Chartered accountant Hind, will join ACCA next year on 1 March and take over as chief executive from Anthea Rose on 13 May, after ACCA’s AGM.

Taking over the role from the formidable Anthea Rose, who has been in the job for nine years, will be a challenging task, but she is confident the institute has got the right man for the job.Rose, who is semi-retiring, said: ‘We have gone for the best and Andrew will prove that to be the case. I had to prove I could do the job as a woman and he will have to prove he can do the job being a chartered accountant.’

ACCA has been searching, with the help of international head-hunters, since the beginning of the year to find someone to fill the post.

The job will pay more than £150,000, but it is expected Hind will retain his role as treasurer of the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.

Commenting on his appointment, Andrew Hind, 46, added: ‘It will be an enormous challenge to be responsible for the organisation’s continued development but I will be taking over a body with a strong sense of its core purpose – to provide opportunity for people of ability and application solely on the basis of merit.’
