Anthea's the iron(ing) lady

With the ACCA having begun its campaign to recruit its next chief executive, TS has managed to learn what's really required of any new recruit to the post.

With the imminent departure of outgoing ACCA chief executive Anthea Rose this year, TS managed to uncover the lifestyle the institute’s fearless queen has coped with down the years.

Last week in London the ACCA threw open its doors to the public for the first time – after which the chief executive then braved the elements by trekking off to Scotland for a series of meetings north of the border.

She then returned south at the weekend before popping her head through the door at her home, before heading straight off for a week in the Far East to oversee and conduct further meetings over there.

Anthea confided that she didn’t really have time to pop home but was going to anyway.

The reason? To iron her husband’s shirts for his use while she was away.

The lady is indeed irreplaceable.
