IMA Names New President

C.S. "Bud" Kulesza, CMA, CFM, was recently elected president of the Institute of Management Accountants. Kulesza will serve the 1999-2000 term.

Kulesza, an executive consultant and former vice president for ITT Automotive, Inc., in White Plains, N.Y., succeeds Pam Prinz Stewart as president. He has worked in the world of international business for over 30 years.

In 1994, Kulesza chaired IMA's practice analysis study, which examined the role of accounting professionals in the business world. The update of that report, also overseen by Kulesza, has just been released. He has also pushed initiatives with business schools, with the emphasis on ensuring that students graduate with professionally recognized certifications in management accounting along with their degrees.
