ACCA in chief executive delay

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants today admitted to a 'slight delay' in finding a new chief executive.

The hold-up means chief executive Anthea Rose will remain in the position until a replacement can be found.

Originally it was understood Rose would leave the post in September, but an internal memo sent by her to ACCA members last night revealed she will now remain until 31 December.

An ACCA spokesman said the institute remained confident it would be in a position to name Rose’s successor in August, with the new recruit stepping into the role in the new year.

He added the search had taken longer than expected due to difficulties in interviewing potential replacements based overseas. It is unclear whether the new chief executive will be from the UK.
