Izza sits on management’s table

While much of TS’ Accountancy Age Awards gossip focuses on the going’s on of the accounting community on the night, other interesting snippets were also picked up on during the jollities.

It seems that new ICAEW chief executive Michael Izza is deserting his pals in the technical teams on the seventh floor at Moorgate Place, to sit with management on the fifth. Hold on a minute, wasn’t Michael COO before his promotion? Did he not sit ‘upstairs’ then?

No is the answer, a good organsational man who liked to keep close to the foot soldiers.

Of course now he’ll have to spend his time schmoozing with government, EU top bods and big business heads in his role.

TS thinks that Moorgate Place will see a bit less of him after Christmas.
