Special report: the Anstee departure

Here, we look at the circumstances surrounding the departure of ICAEW chief executive Eric Anstee, gather comment on his tenure, and give him an opportunity to put his side of the story

ICAEW chief executive Eric Anstee has announced that he will be stepping down
from the role later in the year.

During his three-year stay Anstee has overseen a period of great change for
the institute, driving through continuing professional development and looking
to give it more influence in government and internationally.

Yet his drive has proved controversial, angering ICAS over a proposed name
change and then some of his members during the failed attempt to merge with
CIPFA.

Listen to Accountancy Age’s podcast interview with Anstee following the
announcement, and read the thoughts of those in the industry about his tenure.
