The Accountancy Age Personality of the Year will be decided by a reader poll and this year three lucky voters will scoop prizes.
With dramatic restructuring in the practice sector, growing regulatory pressures and increasing concerns about financial stability at home and on the world stage, our shortlist pulls together candidates from business, government agencies, a regulatory authority and the world of practice.
There was no shortage of potential candidates but in the end the shortlist, selected by the Accountancy Age editorial team, came down to: Tenon Group chief executive Ian Buckley; GlaxoSmithKline FD John Coombe; FSA chief Howard Davies; Ernst & Young senior partner Nick Land; Inland Revenue chief Nick Montagu; and ICAEW president Graham Ward.
