Mr. Aulous Madden, OD, FCA, FCCA, FAIA
For his contribution to the accounting profession in Jamaica, this past president of both the ICAJ and the ICAC (Institute of Chartered Accountants of the Caribbean) was given the Order of Distinction in 1995.
Forever a staunch advocate on behalf of his profession, This advocacy has led to important achievements for accountancy. Having drafted the documents of proposal for the ICAC he then chaired the steering committee that eventually oversaw the incorporation of the ICAC on the 28th October 1998.
During his tenure as President , Mr. Madden's efforts resulted in the greater participation of the ICAJ in public life and critical analysis of the Government's Tax Reform proposal resulted in ICAJ members now being called to serve on boards in both private and public sector concerns. In fact he has served as president of the Public Accountancy Board, member of the Integrity Commission and Commissioner of the Fair Trading Commission.
As the first person from this region to be elected (1996) to the ACCA council, Aulous Madden still hopes to oversee the ending of regulations that restrict accountants from cross border inter-regional practice.
