ICA shortlist drawn up

Headhunters have drawn up a shortlist for the post of English ICA secretary general.

Institute insiders are confident of meeting the self-imposed six-month deadline, which expires next month, for finding a permanent replacement for Andrew Colquhoun.

Former council member John Collier is acting secretary and chief executive and in the running for the top job, which carries a salary of more than #150,000. His company, Collier Environmental Associates, was paid #20,000 for his institute work in November and December last year. One leading institute member said: ‘The job description is perfect for him.’

Contrary to the institute’s Gerrard Report, candidates need not be chartered accountants. At least one leading company chief executive has been approached by headhunters.

The institute’s annual report reveals a #2.2m surplus, with reserves equal to four months’ subscriptions.
