New ICAEW E&T MD unveiled – eventually!

It has taken some time, but ICAEW has finally appointed a new MD of education and training to replace Hazel Garvey. It even forgot to tell everyone that Will Holt had started on 3 July (we got a press release on 7 July). What happened to transparency?

Holt will oversee ICAEW’s student offering, including the ACA qualification, routes into the profession, and talent and diversity.

He qualified with PwC in 2006 as a chartered accountant, and is the former dean of the business school at Pearson college London.

Holt is no stranger to the ICAEW. He worked for them as a senior manager from 2011 and 2013.
