Mr. Imam, a Certified Professional Accountant and Chartered Accountant, was also a member of the tax team at Ernst & Young and the audit staff at Deloitte.

“I am very pleased to have Farhan as a member of the CSA Group Executive Leadership team,” said David Weinstein, president and CEO of CSA Group. “His extensive experience will provide the financial leadership essential to supporting CSA Group’s growth aspirations. As we head towards our 100th anniversary, this leadership experience is key as we evolve and set up our organization for future success.”
