Rose will play no active role at ACCA

Outgoing ACCA chief executive Anthea Rose has this week reiterated her intention to play no active role at the institute after her departure.

In a letter to Accountancy Age this week, she said she would continue to ‘take an interest’ but insisted there were no ‘serious problems at the heart of the organisation’. She will stick to her pledge to leave this week.

Her comments came less than a month after ACCA lost its second chief executive designate within 18 months. Desmond Hudson’s resignation emerged two weeks ago when he was just days away from his 1 October start date.

Another appointee, Andrew Hind, who was finance director at the BBC World Service, backed out before his start date in March 2002. Last week, Hind said that his departure had come about because of his unhappiness over the ‘remit’ of the chief executive’s role at ACCA.

Helen Brand, ACCA chief operating officer, is currently acting CEO.
