ACCA won't follow Tory party lead

The latest whispers emanating from the halls of power at the ACCA suggest the replacement for retiring chief executive Anthea Rose will almost certainly be an external appointment.

A decision on Rose’s successor is expected to be announced in the next month or so ? but word has it the institute is determined not to follow the lead of the Tory party.

As you’ll recall, John Major never moved out of Margaret Thatcher’s shadow, and the institute is working to ensure its new chief will be forceful enough to immediately stamp his or her authority on proceedings.

ACCA says that any new appointee will be vetted to make sure he or she can steer one of accountancy?s most august institutions without the interference of a backseat driver. However, this may take some doing ? especially as Rose is expected to be retained in an honorary position.

Good luck, whoever you are!
