ACCA nears end of chief executive hunt

ACCA is on the verge of revealing who will to take over from its formidable chief executive Anthea Rose when she retires.

It is believed an offer has been made and that the candidate, thought to be a high-profile international figure, will have to serve at least six months notice before taking over at the institute’s Lincoln’s Inn Fields headquarters.

ACCA has been searching, with the help of international head-hunters, since the beginning of the year to find someone to fill the post.

It has been confirmed that Anthea Rose will now stay on beyond the end of December, her publicised finish date, and could be with the institute until the spring of next year as part of a handover.

The chief executive’s job will pay more than Pounds 150,000 for the lucky candidate. Given ACCA’s keen interest in developing its student numbers in China, speculation is growing that the new chief will have extensive experience of the Far East and emerging markets.

An announcement could be made at an ACCA council meeting on 13 September. Any candidate requires council approval before starting work.

ACCA this week refused to confirm if an offer had been made.
