CIMA elects Harrow accountant as president

Gulzari Babber is elected president of CIMA with Malcolm Furber awarded deputy and Keith Luck vice-president

CIMA has awarded its presidency to Gulzari Babber who runs his own accountancy practice in Harrow, north west London.

Babber, (pictured) principal at Gulzari Babber & Co, has been a CIMA member since 1984. Since 2001, he has chaired a number of policy Committees including, the members’ services, marketing, professional standards and technical, as well as the institute’s executive committee.

He is also the general secretary for the Vishwa Hindu Temple, joint chairman of the Met Police Hindu Consultation Forum, and was formerly chairman of the Ealing Community and Police Consultative group for two years.

“I am delighted and honoured to be elected as president and I look forward to building on CIMA’s success with our dynamic council and staff team,” he said.

“With a rise in university fees and difficult economic conditions CIMA’s relevance continues to grow. I am excited to be leading CIMA’s membership during a time of global change and strengthening our joint venture with AICPA [the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants].”

Malcolm Furber, who runs his own consulting business in South Africa MZ Consulting, was named deputy president and will succeed Babber when he steps down in a year. Vice-president Keith Luck, director of strategic programmes at Cerco, will follow on from Furber.
