Michael Groom announced his decision to step down almost 30 years after first taking his seat on the institute’s supreme governing body in 1975.

In 2001 he took the institute’s top seat as president and his period in office was notable for its theme of enterprise and a penchant for foreign travel.

Groom, who is the third longest-serving Council member of all time, used his parting words to encourage members to vote yes to the adoption of practice assurance and continuing professional development in June.

He said: ‘This focus on quality assurance will help demonstrate to the outside world that chartered accountants work to the highest professional and ethical standards.’
