CIMA give IT manager the top spot

Glynn Lowth has been elected president for CIMA.

CIMA has announced that former deputy president Glynn Lowth has been elected
president at the 89th AGM.

Lowth succeeds Gordon Grant and in an unusual step for CIMA, which in the
past has predominantly given the title to CFOs, FDs or FCs, has a technology
background currently holding the position of IT manager for IT services company
BASF.

The new president has been a council member for over 18 years and chaired the
Institutes committees including the disciplinary committee.

‘It is an honour to be elected as CIMA’s president and I look forward to
leading the only Chartered Management Accountancy body with a sole focus on
business into new markets and territories. I am keen to build upon CIMA’s
activities across the world and to maintain our strategic momentum’ said Lowth.

Aubrey Joachim has been promoted from vice president to deputy president and
George Glass formerly chairman of the lifelong learning policy committee takes
on the role of vice president.

Prior to BASF Lowth was head of accounting development at Kroll
Pharmaceuticals.
