“The profession comes together as CCAB to rebuild trust and to continue to further our agenda of ‘Accountants for Growth’,” said Brown. “Part of this is helping the wider public and the political world to better understand the value that professional accountants play in local, national and global economies as a force for creating wealth, prosperity and public good.”
