Growing band of millionaire accountants under spotlight.

Accountancy isn't seen by many outside the profession as a particularly glamorous career, but in terms of what you can earn it isn't found wanting.

This week, AccountancyAge.com looks at some individuals who have made it to the top of the profession and beyond, into the highly rewarding business world.

Take David Ross of The Carphone Warehouse. As chief operating officer at the mobile telephone company, his 33% stake could net him as much as #700m when the company floats later this summer.

Visit AccountancyAge.com this week to read about Ross and the growing band of millionaires who kicked off their careers with an accountancy training.
