Abstract: This study aims at introducing a new insight to the literature in the field of management accounting. It investigates the link between predictor and predicted variables; independent managers in the board and risk management committee, and their impact on companies' profitability represented by management accounting measurements ROE and ROA, and company's profitability represented by market share. I utilised multiple regression to analyse available data for Jordanian industrial firms for the ended year 2017. Unlike prior studies, I find an insignificant link between independent managers and company's profitability represented by ROE and market share. Furthermore, risk management committee has a significant relationship with ROE and market share. The originality of this study is its concern on the effect of different factors on profitability is remaining somewhat under-researched. Thus, the current research is the first of its kind that investigates risk management as a predictor variable in its link with market share.

Keywords: independent manager; risk management committee; RMC; companies' profitability; developing countries.
