President's Message

Dear IMA Members,
Dear International Finance Professionals,

Today I would like to update you on the work of IMA Germany and our plans for 2015.

IMA Germany is special within IMA in that our members are unusually high-caliber, experienced and successful. This along with exceptional speakers make our meetings especially interesting - both professionally as well as regards to networking. We live our mission: 

IMA Germany – the place for international finance professionals to meet and exchange ideas.

Looking forward we can note that:

  • The following members have volunteered their services:

-       Niko H. Kaden as President - and Regional Coordinator Stuttgart

-       Thorsten Pruin as VP of Membership - and Regional Coordinator Frankfurt

-       David Fairchild as Treasurer and Secretary - and Regional Coordinator Munich

-       Niels Dechow - Regional Coordinator Düsseldorf

-       Florian Kohfink - Director

-       Volker Skotarek - Senior Advisor - and Contact to Universities

  • We will continue our close working relationship with the IMA EMEA director, Nina Michels-Kim and her team who are based in Zurich. This cooperation is important to utilize the global IMA organization to support us as we work to develop the chapter in Germany.
  • We plan to increase our outreach to business professors at a few select universities and their students - building upon our work in this area in 2014.

Both the board of IMA Germany and the dedicated members of the global IMA organization in the USA and Europe are committed to making your IMA membership valuable for you – both professionally and personally.


Best regards,

Niko H. Kaden, CMA CPA
Chapter President
