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.
