And where is Ian Powell, PwC#s senior partner? Being unassumming and not shouting from the rooftops (take note Connolly from Deloitte) does not reduce ones influence.

I thought if I put that in the title it'll be in text big enough for Tom Anderson (hopefully not a PwC auditor) to notice it.

Obviously attention to detail doesn't feature high on PwC's list. Look at number 20. Your man is there.

Lord Lawson (18) was bold to ask why auditors didn't bark to alert us of the financial crisis. Whether he'll get the answer is doubtful - for example leading economist Nouriel Roubini thinks we'll never learn because too many others wold be implicated. It's thought better that all the fault should lie with auditors and bankers.
It would be wrong to think that Lord Lawson has retired from public life. His interests have moved on to perhaps the biggest challenge in global economics. Here are his recent comments on the G20. http://www.standpointmag.co.uk/node/3644

Ian Powell is at number 20 in the list. Perhaps PWC would enter at a higher rank if its followers got themselves a bit more 'in the detail'...
