Andrew Cima president

Cima appoints new president


The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (Cima) recently appointed Andrew Miskin as its new president at the organisation’s annual general meeting (AGM).

Miskin, who has 25 years’ experience as a management consultant, will be responsible for chairing the institute’s governance arrangements and advocating for Cima and management accounting, the organisation said.

He has held a variety of roles within Cima, including serving on the Cima council, as chairman of Cima’s members' services committee and as deputy president of the executive committee.

On the day of his election to president, the result of a member ballot in favour of a new accounting association with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) was also announced. Andrew will therefore oversee the creation of the new body.

Miskin said: “The role of Management Accountants is evolving from the reporting of financial and operational performance. Today, it is about communicating decision-relevant information and providing management with a forecast of potential outcomes. Therefore, new competences and especially a new confidence in dealing with uncertainty is required. Management Accountants are now leaders at all business levels and they create and protect value. So, I have the good fortune to begin my presidency at a time when management accountancy is becoming more relevant than ever.”

During his management consulting career Miskin has lived and worked all over the world, from Paris, Iraq and Switzerland to Ukraine. He has held senior leadership roles within Esso, KPMG, IBM, CSC and PricewaterhouseCoopers. He is also a member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology and a Chartered Engineer. He undertakes pro-bono charitable consulting work through the auspices of the Worshipful Company of Management Consultants, Cima said. –TradeArabia News Service
