Ireland’s largest and oldest professional accountancy body,
the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland
(ICAI), has selected Vincent Sheridan, CEO
of Vhi Healthcare, as its new president.
His appointment was made at the ICAI’s AGM in Dublin and Sheridan used the
opportunity to talk about the Irish election, saying that regardless of who won,
maintaining international competitiveness ‘is a challenge that never ceases’
‘And it is multi faceted too. It involves building physical infrastructure
and developing intellectual product and skills. It is the result of a series of
initiatives not any single decision,’ he added.
Jim Aiken, director of corporate affairs at the
NI Transport Holding
Company, was elected deputy president while Tom Fitzpatrick, managing
partner in FMB Chartered Accountants was elected Vice President.
