More about Dr Hilary Lindsay

Hilary Lindsay

In 2016-17 I was President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW); the first academic and second woman to hold that position in ICAEW's 137 year history. I was also chair of the CCAB, the combined group of the main UK accountancy bodies. In 2011-12 I had been President of AAT (the Association of Accounting Technicians).

I'm an award-winning lecturer in finance and management for the Open University Business School and a researcher and supervisor on the OU Doctorate in Education programme. Students and others will attest that I have considerable communication and facilitation skills. Earlier in my career I received the Junior Chamber International Award for the most outstanding member in the world.

I recently completed a nine year term as a trustee of CABA and for over ten years have been on the boards of housing associations. I live in Northampton with my husband Colin. We have both been involved with Northampton Samaritans for over twenty years. Other joint interests include walking, our allotment and our livery companies. I have previously run several marathons to raise funds for Northampton Samaritans and we both recently completed Wainwright's 200 mile Coast to Coast walk across the north of England.
