CIMA elects Keith Luck as president

Luck begins one-year term as the body focuses on improving global standards

CIMA has appointed Keith Luck as its president, as the professional body looks to improve consistency and global professional standards.

Luck (pictured), who is currently strategic programmes director at Serco, has more than 30 years’ experience in management accounting and previously held roles at Deloitte, HSBC, BT, the Metropolitan Police and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

He served on the CIMA Council for more than eight years, also representing the professional body on the IFAC Professional Accountants in Business committee from 2006 and 2012.

In February, CIMA launched its Global Management Accounting Principles guidance, in partnership with the American Institute of CPAs. The UK professional body is also preparing to launch its updated 2015 training syllabus.

Luck said the global recovery is “raising CIMA’s relevance in boardrooms and classrooms around the world”, as business leaders focus on the shape and momentum of economic growth.

He said: “I am honoured to be elected as president and I look forward to continue advancing our mission of helping people and businesses succeed. We will strive to further develop CIMA’s activities and strategies with our students, members and stakeholders.”

Luck’s one-year voluntary term began at CIMA’s 7 June AGM. Myriam Madden, current director of finance at Historic Scotland, was appointed deputy president at the same meeting.
