ACCA loses new CEO

ACCA has this morning been rocked by news that Andrew Hind, announced as the new chief executive to take over from Anthea Rose in March, will now not be taking the post.

Hind, finance director at the BBC’s World Service, pulled out of the £150,000 a year job after failing to agree contractual terms with the institute.

Anthea Rose will now stay in post while ACCA resumes the search for a new chief executive.

In a statement issued by ACCA Hind said: ‘I very much regret that I will not now be joining ACCA. I wish the Association, and its members and students around the world, every success for the future’.

ACCA’s president, George Auger, commented: ‘We are naturally disappointed that the appointment of ACCA’s next chief executive has not worked out. We wish Andrew Hind well in his continued responsibilities at the BBC.

‘We shall now renew our search for a successor to Anthea Rose to take ACCA forward to the next stage of its development.’
