Special adviser to KPMG Management Consultancy and former head of KPMG’s consulting arm Mike Jeans has been elected as a Council nomination for vice president of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.
His appointment is subject to a vote by members at the Institute’s AGM on 13 June.
“CIMA’s mission is to be the global accountancy body,” Jeans says. “But we do have nearly 2,000 management consultants in practice within CIMA.” He said increasing numbers of CIMA members are moving into consultancy.
Currently the figure is 5 per cent but Jeans believes it is growing at 10 per cent each year, so it is important for firms to understand the contribution management accountants are making to consultancy.
