President's Message

Dear IMA Austria Chapter members,

I’m pleased to announce the newly reorganized IMA Austria Chapter. I’m also proud to introduce our exceptional, all-volunteer Chapter Board — Dominik Millner as Treasurer, Alejandro Verdin as Auditor, Christine Bischoff as Secretary and Elizaveta Gall as VP Membership. Together, we are here to support the Certified Management Accountants, IMA members and those in the process of learning and certification, as well as the wider accounting and finance professional community with high quality educational events, CPEs and networking opportunities, in the greater region of Austria


The current crisis may be precisely the right time to revamp and energize the Austrian CMA community. Even while in-person events and chapter activities remain unfeasible, more management accountants are looking to get CMA-certified to stand out from their peers and international companies are increasingly looking for professional certification. This continued growth not only benefits every involved individual, but also our diverse and successful group of accomplished professionals as a whole.


We would love to help this growth and we are just getting started! The ultimate result will be a network of successful finance and management accounting people getting the maximum value out of their IMA membership.


Many thanks to IMA Europe for their support in organizing this chapter anew.


I’m looking forward to welcoming you to one of our future events — be sure to check them out and stay in touch!


Kind regards,

Ivailo P. Sokolov, CMA


President, IMA Austria Chapter
