Jeans nominated for CIMA

Mike Jeans, the former head of KPMG's consulting arm, is set to take charge of management accountants' body CIMA in 2000, writes Phillip Inman.

Last week CIMA’s council put forward Jeans as its only nomination for junior vice president of the institute. The remaining barrier to his appointment will be a vote of members at the institute’s annual general meeting in June.

Before Jeans takes on leadership of the institute’s 100,000 qualified and trainee management accountants, the current post-holder, David Melvill, will move up to senior vice-president and Peter Layhe will take on the presidency.

Jeans defeated two other members of the council, whose identities are kept secret by CIMA, to get a clear run at the job. He said it was likely the council picked him out because he was a prominent member in practice.

‘We have nearly 2,000 members in practice and it is a growing proportion of our membership,’ he said.

He highlighted education and regulation as hot topics the institute will need to deal with over the next couple of years.

Jeans was a member of the original Swinson committee charged with building a system of self-regulation that would satisfy the government.

‘It’s obviously something I have kept a watching brief on because it has an impact on management accountants,’ Jeans said.
