In anticipation of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) annual conference next week in Las Vegas, we asked Jeff Thomson, CMA and president and CEO of IMA, to weigh in on some of the most significant results from the 2012 IMA annual salary survey. You can see the full results here.
Business Finance: Are accountants and finance professionals making more this year than they were last year?
Jeff Thomson: The average salary of IMA members has remained consistent over the years, despite economic instability. I'm pleased to say that more respondents reported a salary increase in 2011 than in 2010, and the average amount of the increase was greater as well.
