Molyneux, former director of faculty management and development, will take up overall responsibility for the institute’s technical activities.
The new technical affairs department will encompass the Centre for Business Performance, the five faculties, technical policy and technical products and Services.
John Collier, ICAEW secretary general, said: ‘I am delighted that Anne will be taking on this new role, where her skills and experience can best benefit the institute and our members.
‘Over the next few months Anne will be reviewing the entire technical area to ensure we make the most of the huge pool of expertise we have there. Pioneering technical excellence is one of our six strategic themes, so thought leadership, research, technical representation and improved members services are of vital importance to us.’
Molyneux was previously a director at CPA Australia where she worked as director of Intellectual Capital for three years.
Anthony Carey, who has worked at the institute for 15 years, resigned last week as director of the institute’s Centre for Business Performance to ‘develop new opportunities in his areas of expertise’. Carey was responsible for research and publications on areas such as financial reporting, corporate governance and sustainability.
