Ex-Smiths FD to become ICAS chief

The former FD of FTSE 100 technology giant Smiths Group is set to become
president of ICAS.

Alan Thomson has been nominated as the next junior vice-president of ICAS, a
position that means that he will become president in 2010.

Thomson is a non-exec at Johnson Mathey, Crossmatch Technologies and Alstom.
He is also on the council of the Scots body and chairman of the technical policy
board.

Isobel Sharp, ICAS president, said: ‘Alan will be a terrific ambassador for
ICAS. He is well respected in UK industry and financial circles, and his
international experience will serve the Institute well. He has made a major
contribution to the work of ICAS through his involvement with our technical
committees – in particular, the production of guidance for pensions trustees,
which has been well received throughout the UK.’

In a statement, Alan said of his appointment: ‘I am delighted to be nominated
as junior vice-president of ICAS. The Institute is in great shape and is
launching its new strategy this month. I am determined that ICAS continues to
make a difference and continues to influence accountancy developments globally.’
