Ambassador for the profession?

Does ACCA chief executive Allen Blewitt know what he’s done? Interviewed in The Times last week, he warmed to his theme that accountants could help to bridge differences between people to create mutual understanding.

‘We just have to keep broadening it to say, look globally at what’s happening. There is no other profession that can transcend boundaries the way that accountancy does,’ he said.

TS notes only that transcending boundaries, on tax in particular, is what the profession’s critics have always said it does, to deleterious effect (TS had to look that word up, by the way). And Blewitt thinks he is an ambassador for the profession.
