Financial Power List 2018: 41-45 revealed

Financial Power List 2018: 41-45 revealed

We reveal the individuals who have made positions 41-45 on the Financial Power List 2018

Compiled by the Accountancy Age editorial team, the Financial Power List 2018 ranks the 50 individuals who we believe will have significant influence on the direction of the accountancy industry over the next 12 months. Individuals considered for the list span government, practice and business with the rankings reflecting who has the power to make an impact in 2018.

Make sure you check back to view the full rankings, which will be released on 31 January, with five individuals announced every day between now and the end of the month.

Here, we reveal the individuals who have made positions 41-45 on this year’s list.

45. Julie Adams, Managing Partner, Menzies

Posting total fee income of £40.34m in the Accountancy Age 50+50 Accountancy Firms 2017 rankings, up from £34m in the previous year, under Adam’s leadership Menzies continues to grow. With a big focus on corporate social responsibility and a relatively young team (31% of employees in the 25-31 bracket), the firm proves popular with its clients having achieved a net promoter score of 45, above the industry average of 38.

Can Adams lead the firm to further growth this year?

44. John Cullinane, Tax Policy Director, CIOT

A strong and respected voice on tax policy for both the industry and government, there’s no shortage of tax matters for Cullinane to get stuck into in 2018. With April tax changes ahead, the Budget awaiting later in the year and Brexit looming, we can be confident that the former CIOT president and Deloitte senior tax partner will have plenty to say on the big topics.

43. Bill Dodwell, Tax Partner, Deloitte

Leading the tax policy group at Deloitte, Dodwell will be well placed to exert influence on the finer details of domestic tax policy through consultations with the Treasury and HMRC, as well as on the international stage through dialogue with the OECD.

42. Brian Palmer, Tax Policy Expert, AAT

A leading authority on Making Tax Digital, Palmer is sure to be at the forefront of opinion on the government’s digital tax initiative, as well as providing feedback and steer on the direction of the policy. As UK accountants prepare to comply with MTD requirements over the next 15 months, Palmer is in prime position to voice any industry concerns to those at HMRC in the run-up to April 2019.

41. Richard Murphy, Founder, Tax Research UK

With tax evasion and tax avoidance ever-present as major discussion topics in 2018, tax campaigner Murphy’s take views on tax inequality and the impact on the UK will be welcomed by many in the industry. As Brexit negotiations continue with the March 2019 deadline speedily approaching, Murphy will remain an important voice in an uncertain, and often unfair, environment.
