ICAS head pushes hi-tech services

Andrew Christie, the newly appointed president of the Scots ICA, has said the coming year will see the modernisation of communications between ICAS members.

Speaking after his appointment, Christie said the institute would take advantage of the new ‘purpose-built premises at Haymarket in Edinburgh, to improve both the quality and effectiveness of our communication through use of e-mail and the (ICAS) website.

‘It is hoped our improved IT facilities will also encourage the feedback we constantly need in order to provide the right mix of services and support for all our members,’ he added.

Christie, 51, a professor of taxation at Heriot-Watt University, took office at the institute’s agm held in Glasgow on Friday last week.

He will be serve a one-year term and will be supported by senior vice-president Cahal Dowds, senior partner at Deloitte & Touche, and junior vice-president Murdoch McKillop, senior corporate restructuring partner at Arthur Andersen.

Last year, Christie served as senior vice president of ICAS under Grenville Johnston, the man he has replaced.

Prior to taking up a part-time teaching post at Heriot-Watt University in 1998, Christie spent 27 years at Arthur Andersen rising to the position of tax partner, before going on to head the Big Five firm’s tax office in Scotland.
