HSKS Greenhalgh Managing Director, Kultaran Singh, has been announced as the new President of the Nottingham, Derby and Lincoln Society of Chartered Accountants (NDLSCA) for 2016/17.
Kultaran takes over the role from Simon Gray of Pembridge Gray Limited. George Acquah of Rolls Royce will take on the role of Deputy President and Kultaran’s fellow HSKS Greenhalgh Director Anshu Mehan will be Vice-President.
The NDLSCA organise events for members, ranging from courses to annual dinners, social events and discussion groups, as well as representing the interests of chartered accountants in the district to the wider business community.
During his presidency, Kultaran will represent the views of local members at national level, set the NDLSCA’s strategy for the next 12 months and attend a variety of events across England and Wales on behalf of the Society.
Whilst it is a challenge he is very much looking forward to, Kultaran is aware that he has a hard act to follow. He commented: “During his 12 months as President Simon Gray has reinvigorated the NDLSCA, particularly where engaging with younger members of the profession is concerned, and I am all too aware of the responsibility I have to successfully build on this momentum.
“Over the next 12 months we are looking to put on a series of events which will appeal to our younger members in particular, increase the use of social media to connect with our membership and to encourage the Derby and Lincoln societies to play a greater role in the NDLSCA. On a personal level I am honoured to be the District’s representative and am looking forward to attending a variety of events across the country to raise the profile of the region’s accountancy professionals”.
Commenting on the past 12 months as President, Simon Gray said: “I’ve really enjoyed my year as NDLSCA president and have worked closely with Kultaran and George. We’ve run events on social media, presentation skills and emotional intelligence with the aim of engaging with ICAEW members across the region. I’ll continue to represent NDLSCA on the ICAEW Business Committee and wish Kultaran every success in his new role, I’m sure he’ll do a great job.”
