the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales - has today announced the appointment of Tinashe Rwodzi to its Africa Members Advisory Board. Rwodzi, who is the Zimbabwe and Malawi country manager at PwC, specialising in Financial Services, Energy and Mining.

Speaking during the announcement of Rwodzi's appointment to the Advisory Board, Michael Armstrong, ICAEW's Regional Director for the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, said that his understanding of the Central and Southern Africa region would prove to be an advantage for the ICAEW.

"Having a large global footprint is key for our organisation as we strive to create and develop a strong global network of financial professionals. We are that confident that Tinashe's experience will aid us greatly in our activities in Africa," said Mr. Armstrong

The ICAEW Africa Members Advisory Board (MAB) is a volunteer advisory board, whose primary aim is to advise, guide and support the ICAEW Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) Regional Director and Africa team to implement ICAEW's international strategy.

There are over 1.8m chartered accountants and students around the world, and African chartered accountants make up a considerable portion of the ICAEW's membership. ICAEW trains, develops and supports each one of them so that they have the knowledge and values to help build local and global economies that are sustainable, accountable and fair.  

"Tinashe joins us at a significant time as we continue to drive our strategy across the continent and build deeper relationships with our members and partners to leverage the globalisation of our profession for the continent's economic growth," he added.

Zimbabwe's financial sector is relatively sophisticated, consisting of a Reserve Bank, discount houses, commercial banks, merchant banks, finance houses, building societies, the Post Office Savings Bank, numerous insurance companies and pension funds and a stock exchange. This, coupled with the presence of a well-educated population provides Zimbabwe with the platform to be an economic powerhouse on the continent.

Rwodzi, who is based in Zimbabwe, has been with PwC for his entire career. He serves as an audit partner and also sits on the PwC Southern Africa Governing Board.
"I look forward to making a great impact during my time on the Members Advisory Board. The team at the ICAEW recognise the importance of strong global networks to the development of our profession and I am excited to be taking up a strategic role at the firm to help shape and enhance that network," said Mr. Rwodzi.

Rwodzi is a Past President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Zimbabwe (ICAZ) and currently serves as Chairman of the Examination Board of ICAZ.
