KPMG's Illingworth wins ICAEW vote

David Illingworth, a partner in KPMG's Manchester office, has been elected vice-president designate of the ICAEW in a ballot of Institute Council members.

Following the announcement, Illingworth said: ‘The Institute has achieved a great deal in the last two years. Delivery of the new ACA qualification, the successful launch of Focuses to ensure that Institute services meet the changing needs of members and the championing of the profession’s interests at a global level represent significant moves forward.

‘But there is still much to do to ensure that all members have the skills required to add value in tomorrow’s business environment.’

Illingworth, who will take office formally on 6 June, said he looked forward to participating in the opening of ten regional offices in the summer, which he said would ensure that the views of members in district societies were better represented in regional government and other business forums.

Andrew Shelley and Nick Parker, a director of BKL Tenon, who both stood for the vice-presidency congratulated Illingworth on his appointment.

Shelley said: ‘I believe that David’s valuable experience gained with the Manchester District Society, on Council and in practice will do much to build on the Institute’s traditional strengths and enhance communications with members,’ while Parker commented: ‘David brings a wealth of experience in the profession to the role.’

Illingworth has 20 years experience in Institute affairs and is a past president of Manchester District Society. He has served on the Institute’s Council since 1997.

During his time at the ICAEW he has contributed to its work as chairman of the CAASE, the advisory service on ethics, and on the Management Board of the Members Directorate which has responsibility for services provided to members.

He graduated from Cambridge University and trained with KPMG, becoming a partner in 1975 at the Manchester office. He is on the CBI North West Regional Council and is a governor of two schools and a trustee of a charitable trust.
