Wyman and Shelley battle it out for vice-presidency role.

The two candidates who will slug it out for the office of vice-president of the English ICA have been named. Andrew Shelley, businessman, and PricewaterhouseCoopers’ partner Peter Wyman, have been named as the only candidates for the election. Voting will take place at the institute council meeting on 9 February with the victor due to take office at the council meeting to be held on 7 June. As the vice-president role is third in line to the chain of office, either Shelley or Wyman can expect to be installed as president during 2002. Wyman, who led the doomed campaign to persuade the institute membership to introduce ‘elective’ optional papers into its syllabus, said: ‘I certainly do not pretend to have all the answers, but I think I understand the issues.’ He was a district society president and committee member for eight years, developing the concept of faculties and chaired education and training for four years. ‘If elected, I would redouble my efforts to overcome what I believe has been the root cause of many of our difficulties in recent years, namely the lack of effective communication,’ Wyman added. Shelley, who has managed the growth of Mintons to a world class plc, was co-opted to the council in the 1980s to help form the industrial members committee as vice-chairman. His experience of manufacturing business and agriculture will give him a different perspective to the presidency than his Big Five rival. ‘At a time of strategic change, knowledge from outside London and large accounting firms would represent more closely what very many of our members actually do,’ he said. Shelley, who qualified in 1959 with Luckin & Sheldrake, has also served on the Confederation of British Industry council and been a Trade Association treasurer. Since election from East Anglia in 1995, he has also worked as vice-chairman of BCAB.
