Accountancy Age Awards 2010 Personality of the Year - Steve Maslin

awards 2010 logoThe profession has witnessed various commentators outline their views on the future of the audit profession, but none are as articulate or forward-looking as Grant Thornton’s Steve Maslin, our Personality of the Year.

Maslin has not been shy in defending auditors in the face of political attacks, but has also articulated the need for change in the wake of the crisis.

He has effectively served this year as the profession’s conscience, advocating the need for real reform.

“I believe that dialogue between auditors and audit committees should be more open to investors, resulting in clearer disclosures. The key is to unlock that information flow to help investors without undermining the auditors’ ability to get to the information they need,” he recently wrote in Accountancy Age.

Maslin has moved beyond rhetoric to provide more practical advice for audit’s future structure.
