Lord Sharman voted most influential accountant
The English ICA has awarded its top accolade, the 2000 Founding Societies' Centenary Award, to Lord Sharman, the Liberal peer who recently retired as chairman of KPMG International.
The award is granted to a member of the English ICA who has made an outstanding contribution in any field of endeavour.
Lord Sharman will receive his award in June at a dinner organised by the London Society of Chartered Accountants.
‘Colin Sharman has made an enormous contribution to the development of KPMG as a dynamic international business organisation,’ said Ian Plaistowe, chairman of the selection committee.
Sharman last year became the first practising accountant to be appointed to the upper chamber for fifty years.
Previous winners include Sir Brian Jenkins and Lord Wakeham.
