The Florida Institute of CPAs has named Kathryn B. Anderson, CAE, as its new chief executive and executive director, succeeding Lloyd "Buddy" Turman.

Anderson, who previously worked at the FICPA from 1976 to 1998, will start her new post July 1, when Turman retires after 32 years with the institute. Anderson has served as executive director of the South Carolina Association of CPAs since 1998.

Turman told WebCPA that he will continue to work for the FICPA, but plans to set up his own shop as a consultant specializing in government relations, public affairs and organizational management.

"I'll continue to lobby heavily for the FICPA and will have a continuing relationship with them," Turman said. "I'm going to continue to do something I'm passionate about, but without the responsibilities of having 65 staff members. I'm really excited about Kathy coming back."

Anderson is a member of the American Society of Association Executives and the South Carolina Society of Association Executives. While in Florida, she served as president of the Tallahassee Society of Association Executives and president of the Florida Society of Association Executives Foundation. Since moving to South Carolina, she has been an active SCSAE member, serving on its board of directors and CEO Roundtable, and chairing its trade show and education committees. She is a former member of the board for CPA/SEA (the association for CPA association executive directors), and chaired the steering committee for the American Institute of CPAs' National Interchange Conference. Anderson also is a founding member of the Greater Columbia Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners.
