Baird takes CIMA president role

Northern Ireland CIMA council representative Harold Baird named president

HAROLD BAIRD is the new president of CIMA.

Baird provides services to SME and not-for-profit organizations in Northern Ireland. He is a director of the Methodist Publishing Company Limited and Belfast Activity Centre Limited.

Formerly he was senior corporate planning accountant with Northern Ireland Electricity plc, which became Viridian when it was privatised.

He has been involved in the CIMA network, and was appointed to council in 2001.

“CIMA is entering into a joint venture with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), which will raise the profile of the profession and be a passport for careers throughout the world. I am keen to further enhance the institute’s relevance and reputation by forging strong partnerships and working relationships both within the institute and externally,” said Baird.

“It has truly never been a better time to be a management accountant.”

Practice accountant Gulzari Babber has been elected deputy president, while consulting expert Malcolm Furber was elected vice president.
