ACCA HAS RECRUITED Stuart Dunlop as head of its Middle East division.
The institute created a Middle East office in 2004, with staff based in Dubai and Oman.
Dunlop previously worked at the London Stock Exchange in a number of commercial roles. He then joined Reuters working in its South Africa, Switzerland, London and Dubai offices. Dunlop spent eight years in Dubai in various sales and marketing positions and will be based there for his ACCA role.
Dunlop said: “As ACCA’s head of Middle East, I will be looking to build on the significant growth in student numbers and members in the region achieved in recent years. Specifically, I want ACCA to build closer, valuable business relationships with members and key employers throughout the region.
“It’s therefore very important to me that we continue to extend ACCA’s reach in the Middle East by attracting and supporting talented new students in new markets.”
He succeeds Stephen Shields who was promoted to global director of employers and relationship managers. He will continue to be based in Dubai.
