ICAEW has announced that Malcolm Bacchus has been elected as Vice-President for 2022-23. Bacchus looks forward to ensuring “the Institute retains a pre-eminent position in our profession”.

Bacchus will take over the role from incumbent Mark Rhys in June 2022 as Vice-President to 186,500 ICAEW members and students.

Based in London, Bacchus is the principal of Baccma Consulting and was recently head of finance and company secretary for an AIM-listed company.

He currently chairs ICAEW’s Ethics Standards Committee and is a member of the Technical Strategy Board. Bacchus is also a past-President of the London Society of Chartered Accountants and holds the role of Honorary President of the Chartered Accountants Students Society of London.

Commenting on his appointment, he said: “I am delighted to be elected the new ICAEW Vice-President and look forward to working with the other Office Holders and ICAEW colleagues to ensure the Institute retains a pre-eminent position in our profession.

“The role of business, modern technology, global taxation, sustainability, diversity and the long-term economic impact of the pandemic are just some of the issues that will shape our world going forward. We will need to respond to these with foresight and agility in order to help our membership, their clients and businesses to succeed.”

Outside of ICAEW, Bacchus is a member of the HMRC Administrative Burdens Advisory Board (ABAB) which aims to help the UK government make tax easier, quicker and similar for small businesses.

The current ICAEW President is Will Brooks, who will be replaced by Deputy President, Julia Penny in June 2022.
