Manitoba’s CAs and CMAs provide update on CEO selection

April 29, 2013

In a communication to their members, CA Manitoba and CMA Manitoba provide an update on the work of the Transition Steering Committee in the selection process for the role of CEO during the Transition (pre-legislation) and initial Consolidation (post-legislation) stages of the CA and CMA Manitoba integration.
After consideration of the excellent qualifications and outstanding expertise of each of the existing CEOs of CA and CMA Manitoba, it was decided that the CEO position would be made available only to the existing CEOs of CA and CMA Manitoba to support leadership continuity and integration goals during the merger. During the CEO selection process, Ron Stoesz, CEO of CMA Manitoba, announced his intention not to pursue the CEO position for the merged organization. We are pleased that Ron has agreed to undertake the important and key role of Executive Vice President. He will be a senior member of the executive team and provide valuable support to the CEO and staff members during the Transition Stage. 
Gary Hannaford, CEO CA Manitoba, has been named as the CEO of the soon to be established joint venture of CA Manitoba and CMA Manitoba. Gary has served in a leadership capacity in the accounting profession for more than 33 years, including being a current member of the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants.
These appointments take effect June 30, 2013
