Chris Campbell, tax senior manager in Johnston Carmichael’s Elgin team, has been elected to the governing body of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Scotland (ICAS).
ICAS is the global professional body for chartered accountants, comprising over 23,000 members who hold the CA designation.
As well as providing education and training, ICAS acts as a regulator for the accountancy industry and represents its members on a “range of issues” within the profession.
Campbell is a chartered accountant and chartered tax adviser with over 13 years’ post-qualifying experience and works with a range of businesses operating in an array of sectors.
In his role at ICAS, he will represent the Scotland North Area, covering Highland and Grampian, where he has worked in his professional career to date.
Johnston Carmichael already has a number of the team members holding positions on a variety of boards and committees at ICAS.
Previously, Sandy Manson, the firm’s head of client service and former chief executive, was ICAS president from 2018-19.
In addition, John Todd, partner at its Inverness office, is currently chair of the Highland Area Network for ICAS.
Campbell said: “I am proud to be part of the ICAS Council as, first and foremost, I am proud to be a CA. I have found my experience to date on the members board to be very valuable and worthwhile, and my decision to stand for the ICAS Council was a logical next step. I am very grateful to my supporters for their belief in me.
“The ICAS Council sets the strategic direction of the Institute and I hope that I can play my part in helping ICAS move forward as a global leader in the accountancy profession.”
