New acting CE for NZ Institute of Chartered Accountants

17 December 2013

Kirsten Patterson appointed acting CE New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants

As a result of Members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia (ICAA) and the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (NZICA) voting to join together, work has commenced on the transition to a new Institute. This has resulted in some changes to leadership for NZICA.

Kirsten Patterson, formerly Chief Operating Officer at NZICA assumed the role of Acting Chief Executive at NZICA on 1 December. Kirsten replaces Craig Norgate and will transition to the role of New Zealand Country Head of the proposed body Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand when the new organisation becomes operational.

Craig Norgate FCA moved into the role of Transformation Director and has responsibility for transitioning ICAA and NZICA into the proposed new organisation Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand.
Lee White FCA is the CEO designate of proposed body Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and will assume the role of CEO following changes to the NZICA Act and the ICAA's Royal Charter.

Lee is a Fellow Chartered Accountant and an experienced audit practitioner in the public and private sectors. He was appointed CEO of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia in January 2012. Prior to joining the Institute, Lee was the Chief Accountant for the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.

Approximately 60% of ICAA and NZICA’s combined members voted on the proposal to create One New Institute in October.

NZICA is New Zealand’s largest professional body and represents more than 33,000 members in New Zealand and over 90 other countries. We act in the public interest through regulating the profession and promoting quality, integrity and expertise. Our members hold one of three prestigious professional accountancy designations: Chartered Accountant (CA), Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA) or Accounting Technician (AT).
