The MD of Wembley Stadium, Alex Horne

Alex Horne, the man who guided Wembley Stadium through the final difficult
stages of completion, has been voted by Accountancy Age readers Personality of
the Year, 2007.

Horne’s achievement was to close difficult negotiations with Wembley
contractors to steer construction of the stadium back on course.

A former FD at the Football Association, Horne received his award during a
dinner attended by the profession’s great and good at the Battersea Park Arena
in London on Wednesday night.

The evening also saw Sir Mike Rake, chairman of BT and former chairman of
KPMG International, receive the Award for Outstanding Industry Contribution.

Sir Mike was honoured for work in leading the firm in the UK, as well as
internationally. His time in charge included shepherding the firm through the US
tax shelter scandal.

This year’s awards for Global Firm of the Year returned to a Big Four player
with KPMG taking top honours. Another big winner was Ian Dyson, FD at Marks
& Spencer, who won our Blue Chip FD of the Year Award.
