Our leadership is formed of two complementary bodies - our Council and our Executive team.
Together, they develop our ambitious strategic vision. Council oversees our activities, making sure we deliver the objectives outlined in our charter, and our annual budget. The Executive team takes overall responsibility for delivering our strategic targets.
Our Council is made up of 36 elected members - a diverse group of practitioners, professors, chief executives, chief risk officers, managing directors and finance managers, who come from 18 countries. Their knowledge, experience and cross-sector, global perspectives drive our strategy and ensure we lead the profession.
Council elections are held every year to make sure that we benefit from fresh thinking and new ideas.
Our 2016/2017 officers are:
President - Brian McEnery
Deputy - Leo Lee
Vice - Robert Stenhouse
Our Executive team
Our Executive team is responsible for day-to-day management and decision-making, and our Chief Executive Helen Brand OBE reports directly to Council.
The team is made up of five high-performing people whose experience combines accountancy and strategic leadership. There are also two non-executive advisers on our Executive team.
