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.”
