MALCOLM FURBER has been elected as president of CIMA at the institute’s annual general meeting last week.
Furber, (pictured) a member of CIMA’s council for 15 years, said he will develop the institute’s global activities and strategies.
“I am very excited to be presiding over CIMA as our joint venture with the American Institute of CPAs… shapes the future of the management accounting profession,” Furber said.
He was involved in the institute’s last four qualification reviews and the review of its ethical code and was previously chairman of CIMA’s Lifelong Learning Policy Committee.
In 1980, he moved to South Africa and held various senior positions in finance, information technology and corporate planning at Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI). He now runs his own consulting business and spent two years running a business intelligence project at the South African Revenue Services.
In addition to Furber’s appointment, Keith Luck has been elected deputy president, and Myriam Madden has been appointed vice president.
