Taking Stock - New ACCA role for the man from uncle.

ACCA is forever looking for ways to expand and for men and women who can take on the pioneering role. He or she will have to be tough, idealistic, ready to move fast and able to act on their own initiative while on perilous assignments. Such a man is Ilya Yufesev who has taken on the mantle of running the association’s Russian branch. The 31 year-old, who has studied corporate finance and spent some of his time at Cambridge, is to expand and develop ACCA’s membership in Russia and possibly initiate alliances with accountancy bodies there. However, the moniker Ilya has attracted some attention at ACCA’s Lincolns Inn offices where the man from Russia has become know as The Man from UNCLE, after secret agent Illya Kuryakin in the TV series of the same name. We wonder whether Mr Yufesev is aware of the comparison his name has raised with an arcane piece of western TV culture. But the key question for TS is who, at ACCA, would fit the position of Napoleon Solo? ACCA tax supremo Chas Roy-Chowdhury has much the same haircut and, it has to be said, is becoming something of a cult figure with his numerous media appearances. However, TS is willing to accept other nominations from ACCA members to this coveted position.
