CIMA refocuses on customers and employer relations

Institute restructures to focus on employer relations and the needs of its international customers

CIMA – the Chartered Institute of
Management Accountants
– has made a new senior appointment as part of its
restructuring plan aimed at focusing on employer relations and the needs of its
international customers

The institute has appointed
Rick
Sturge
as director of employer and strategic development. Sturge has joined
from Accenture, where he was a business
development director within the firm’s business process outsourcing group.

Sturge will be responsible for CIMA’s employer development framework and
student recruitment throughout the UK and internationally, working closely with
Kathy Grimshaw, director of international development.

Charles Tilley, chief executive of CIMA said, ‘I believe this reorganisation
represents an important change to enable us to deliver the next stage of CIMA’s
development in what is an increasingly competitive global environment. This
environment needs an increased customer relationship focus, as well as clarity
of purpose across the organisation.’
