Sir Alec Reed awarded at CIMA’s annual bash

REED recruitment agency founder and CIMA member Sir Alec Reed has been awarded the institute’s outstanding contribution to business performance award.

Sir Alec was presented with the award at CIMA’s Annual Awards last night.

The institute said that he “has consistently contributed to and promoted the highest standards of management accounting throughout their career”.

He founded Reed in 1960, and qualified with CIMA forerunner the Institute of Cost and Works Accountants a year later.

He is famous for his charity work, including setting up Womankind in 1989 and in 2007.

He was knighted for his services to business and charity earlier this year.
