John Hughesdon, who qualified with KPMG in 1967 and went on to spend 27 years as a partner with Mazars, was admitted to the ancient office at the Guildhall yesterday.

His duties will include helping the Lord Mayor and presenting petitions from the City to Parliament.

Hughesdon, who retired from practice earlier this year, will hold the position for 12 months.

However, when the day comes to stand down as sheriff it will be the post’s traditional cravat and chain rather than any guns he hangs up.

The office of Sheriff dates back to the middle ages and is said to be of long-standing importance in the government of the City of London.
