Aulous-MaddenHaving drafted the documents of proposal for the establishment of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of the Caribbean (ICAC), Aulous Madden was Chair of the steering committee that eventually oversaw the incorporation of the ICAC on October 28, 1988. During his seven-year tenure as founding President, he devoted himself to the development of the ICAC and forged linkages between member territories and affiliates and secured the support of the international accountancy profession.

He created history in 1996 when he became the first Caribbean Accountant to be elected to the ACCA Council. He was re-elected to the Council in 1999.

Since 1972, he has held the position of Senior Partner at the accounting firm, Aulous F. Madden & Company (now PKF) in Kingston, Jamaica. He is formerly the Chairman of the Caribbean Region of PKF Firms.

A past President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Jamaica (ICAJ), he was awarded the Order of Distinction in 1995 for his contribution to the accounting profession in Jamaica. At home, he has served as Vice-President of the Public Accountancy Board, on which he sat for 13 years. He has also been actively involved in the Private Sector Organization of Jamaica (PSOJ), having held the positions of Treasurer, Secretary and Vice President. For nine years, he also served as a member of Jamaica’s Parliamentary Integrity Commission, which monitors the financial status of Parliamentarians. In addition, he was one of the first three Commissioners with the Fair Trading Commission in the first three years of its existence.

Mr. Madden has authored various publications including: Guide to Business in Jamaica 1995 – 1996; Manual on Accounting and Internal Controls for Caribbean Cement Company and a report on The Impact of the Adoption of Globally Accepted Accounting Standards and Auditing Practices in the Caribbean.

A staunch advocate on behalf of the accounting profession, his influence has led to important achievements for the accountancy profession in the region. He still hopes to oversee the end to regulations that restrict accountants from cross border inter-regional practice.
