Why did Mark Carney make the Financial Power List 2018?

Carney was named in 21st position on the Accountancy Age Financial Power List 2018:

It’s been a busy three years for Carney as he has battled to steady the ship amid the ongoing Brexit storm. With just under 18 months left as governor of the Bank of England, the remainder of his tenure will be critical for the UK as Brexit edges ever closer, but uncertainty shows no sign of fading. Carney himself has been at the centre of controversy with his comments on the UK’s exit from the EU with the governor unlikely to be able to make it through 2018 without riling the pro-Brexit boat some more.
