25/09/2017 News Team

The Jersey Society for Chartered and Certified Accountants (JSCCA) has reshuffled its executive committee to support its members and represent the accountancy profession in Jersey.

Following its recent annual general meeting, Paul Woodman has been appointed president of the JSCCA with Wendy Martin supporting him as vice president, both holding their new posts for the next two years.

The JSCCA has a membership of around 600 individual members and liaises regularly with the Jersey Financial Services Commission and Government on matters relating to the accounting profession in Jersey. First established in 1974, its membership includes members of chartered, certified and other recognised accountancy bodies and students.

Mr Woodman is finance director and chief operating officer at the Jersey Pottery and JP Restaurants Group. He is a chartered accountant of nearly 20 years’ experience and has practiced in Jersey for the last 10 years. Prior to his current role, Mr Woodman spent five years as director and head of tax at Deloitte Jersey and has also served on tax and finance committee of the Jersey branch of the Institute of Directors.

Ms Martin is head of tax at EY Channel Islands and has over 20 years of experience advising clients on a wide range of tax matters including international tax structuring in the private equity sector. She was previously head of tax policy within Jersey Government.

Also sitting on the new committee are Bob Henkhuzens as treasurer, Tim Brown, Steven Hunt, Bill Glancy, James De Veulle and Andrew Bougourd. Caroline Harrington remains secretary.

Mr Woodman commented: “The business and wider economic environment, continues to change apace, and we aim to ensure support offered to accountants in Jersey is relevent, timely and accessible. We also aim to reach deeper into the accounting community and grow our membership amongst practitioners in smaller businesses and charities who we believe could greatly benefit for instance from our training programme which is accessible to all JSCCA members.”
