Paul Williams: 1947-2011

AS TECHNOLOGY correspondent and cub reporter for Accountancy Age back in 2003, Paul Williams was one of the first accounting IT experts I bumped into.

The meeting was fortuitous for me. He was pleasant, very helpful, and I found over the ensuing months that he always willing to help explain the twin terrors of technical accounting issues and IT jargon.

So I was very saddened to hear of his sudden death, in January, of a heart attack.

Paul was a very important figure in the accounting IT industry, taking senior responsibilities at the ICAEW’s IT Faculty, ISACA, ING, and on behalf of the Department of Health, to name but a few.

Also a keen commentator in the media, Paul was a willing participant, and a credit, to his industry. He took part in judging the IT entrants to the Accountancy Age Awards in 2004.

Accountancy Age’s condolences go out to his family, friends and work colleagues.

An obituary will appear in the March/April issue of Chartech.
