He assumes the most senior position at the ICAEW, taking over from Peter Owen who retired from the post of secretary general on 5 September this year.

Anstee, 52, has enjoyed a long career in both business and practice, including time as the finance director and then chief executive of the FTSE-100 listed Old Mutual.

Other roles have included chairman of Mansell, FD of The Energy Group and he has also been a member of the Urgent Issues Task Force of the UK Accounting Standards Board.

Eric Anstee said he aimed to further enhance the reputation of the institute.

‘I intend to use my experience in business and practice to reinforce our members’ position.
