CIMA UK appoints Sri Lanka council after 2008 drama

The Chartered Institute of Management (CIMA) UK has appointed a new council for CIMA Sri Lanka, a year after the elected council was suspended in December 2008.

Officials at the local office declined to comment on the move but a senior member said Suthesh Balasubramanium has been apppointed as the new CIMA Sri Lanka President with effect from January. The new council met on Thursday but the membership is yet to be informed of the developments, the member said. The elected council was dismissed by the UK body in a dispute over issues at the local office.

Members of the dismissed council have gone to courts against the CIMA UK December 2008 decision and the case will be taken up next on February 1. Gowri Shanker, CIMA Sri Lanka President, Viren Wijesinghe, Deputy President and Melanie Kanaka, Vice President were amongst the 11-member professionals that were suspended over governance issues. The issues escalated when CIMA Sri Lanka Division CEO Bradley Emerson was appointed to this position.
