ACCA chairperson elected.

HOLLIE Edwards-Davies, head of strategic investment policy for the Welsh Government, has been elected as the new chair of the ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) South Wales members' network.

She is head of strategic investment policy for the Welsh Government and is responsible for the allocation of PS617.5m to support infrastructure priorities in Wales, including investment in transport, energy.

Ben Cottam, head of ACCA Wales said: "The member networks are hugely important to us. They are our link to the wider Welsh membership, they organise events that bring the whole business community together and they do this in their own time and for no financial rewards. Hollie has been a valued member of the South Wales members' network since 2011 and I'm sure she will be a fantastic network chair."

Ms Edwards-Davies, who takes over from Richard Lewis on a maximum three-year term said: "Becoming chair of the South East Wales regional network panel is a fantastic opportunity, having been a panel member since 2011.

"I think the action we take at a local level makes a real difference to our members and a very important contribution to ACCA's global reputation as a professional organisation. "In the year ahead, I'm really looking forward to building on all the work the panel has already done and identifying new ways in which we can raise awareness of ACCA and its research, recruit new students, contribute to the local business community and give our members the support they need."
