Women in accounting featured in Power 100 list

Romanovitch, along with women from the Big Four, have been recognised as some of London's most powerful women

THE CEO of a top 10 accountancy firm along with a host of other female accountancy professionals have been included in City A.M.‘s Power 100 Women list.

Sacha Romanovitch, who became CEO of Grant Thornton UK in 2015, is one of the names included in a list that celebrates and recognises some of the most inspiring female professionals in London.

The Power 100 Women list is compiled from research conducted by City A.M. and based on nominations made by companies in the city. It includes CEOs, entrepreneurs, economists and millennials, as well as those working in banking and finance, investment, law, technology and telecoms, property, and accountancy.

Joining Romanovitch on the list is KPMG partner Claire Warnes, Deloitte’s Shilpa Shah, Jo Ouvry and Sharon Thorne, PwC’s Suzi Woolfson and EY partner Amanda Clack.

The women were chosen based on a number of qualitative characteristics, including the strength and power of position, number of people they manage, and wider impact on the sector.

Commenting on her inclusion in the list Romanovitch said: “I am honoured to be recognised alongside the amazing other business women included on this list.

“Our research shows the benefits businesses can reap from having female executives and this list demonstrates the enormous talent pool available in the city. I hope that seeing the achievements of those listed inspires both young women, and men, into business and to try and unleash their full potential.”

Nicky Morgan, secretary of state for Education and minister for Women and Equalities, said: “This inaugural Power 100 Women list is a really exciting measure of the growing recognition of women within the City.

“Having women in these prominent positions means that companies benefit from an enormous wealth of female talent as well as ensuring visible working role models for the next generation of girls.

“We have already come a long way but can still do more to make sure women everywhere are able to fulfil their potential. It is women like these, who are performing at the top of their game, and the men who work alongside them, who are in a position to make this possible throughout the UK at every level.”
