At its AGM held over the weekend, Kaye, who is currently dean of the Open University Business School, was appointed alongside Ian Christison as deputy president and John Coghlan FCMA as vice president.

Kaye has been a member of CIMA’s IT, education & training, and student development committees, and is also former chairman of the education & examinations board and a member of the executive committee.

‘CIMA members, as accountants in business, are playing a pivotal role in driving some of the world’s most successful organisations, in both the private and public sectors. As a community of professionals, we have a wholehearted commitment and responsibility to lifelong learning and increasing the employability of all members,’ Kaye said.

‘Over the next twelve months we will be rolling out our CIMA Professional Development programme to support our members. I am particularly interested in exploring how we, as a professional body, find further ways of sharing the immense body of knowledge and expertise among our membership, for the benefit of employers and clients worldwide.’
