Insitutes - New recruits herald English ICA reforms

A top civil servant is to take charge of professional standards at the English ICA as part of a Moorgate Place overhaul, launched this week by secretary general John Collier.

Collier has implemented a stripped-down version of the blueprint devised by solicitor Peter Gerrard in his 1997 review. Under the proposals adopted by Council, the professional conduct and regulation departments were merged into the professional standards office. Peter Owen, who served as director general for schools at the Department for Education and Employment, will take charge of the new office, based in Milton Keynes.

Professor Brian Chiplin, director of the University of Nottingham Business School, has been appointed executive director of the institute’s education and training directorate. Both men take up their positions next month.

Collier took personal responsibility for setting up a members’ directorate that will merge all ‘member-facing’ activities – the faculties, General Practitioner Board, Board of Chartered Accountants in Business and technical and communications departments. He plans to appoint a third executive director in 1999.

Danielle Stewart, a partner with Warrener Stewart, criticised the new structure, however, saying technical issues were not prominent enough.
