Having over 20 years of experience as a CIMA Assessor, Stanford will also be participating at the face to face membership assessment sessions to be held on 22 September. 

Stanford’s engagements in the country will focus on promoting management accountancy, and how it will add value to local businesses to drive long term equitable success, benefiting people and the environment.

Stanford was elected as the 84th president of CIMA. He has built up a 50-year career that included a number of senior finance roles in industries like electronics and retail. Stanford has given a lot back to CIMA, serving on its governing council and several local, regional and global committees. Throughout this period of more than 20 years, mentoring the membership, especially students, has been his passion.

As president, he is working to advance the new Association of International Certified Professional Accountants – the Association – formed at the start of 2017 by CIMA and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants CPAs (AICPA). CIMA members are now part of a global network of more than 650,000 professionals and students, in 179 countries.
