Andrew Harding named as CIMA chief executive

CIMA has appointed Andrew Harding as chief executive, replacing Charles Tilley, the institute’s long serving boss.

Harding succeeds Tilley, who stepped down on July 31 after 15 years at chief executive of CIMA, who will now focus on running the newly-created CGMA Research Foundation.

Harding joined CIMA in 2009 as executive director, becoming managing director two years later. His appointment comes shortly after CIMA’s members voted to join forces with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and create a new association.

When it launches in 2017, Harding will become chief executive of its management accounting unit and will be responsible for driving the impact of management accounting across the world.
