Former banking boss heads up Irish institute

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ireland has name Martin Wilson,
chief executive and chairman of Ulster Bank, as its new president, replacing
John Greely.

Vincent Sheridan, chief executive of VHI Healthcare, has been elected deputy
president, and Jim Aiken, director of corporate affairs at the NI Transport
Holding Company of Belfast, has become vice president.

Speaking at the institute’s AGM, Wilson reminded members that there was no
bar on anybody, however ill qualified, setting themselves up as an accountant.

‘We regard this as unfinished business,’ he said.
