My priorities will revolve around ensuring quality, delivering meaningful audit reform, creating a diverse and inclusive industry, and importantly, reinforcing trust in our profession. After all, accountants – whether they be tax advisors, auditors or other finance specialists – play a fundamental role in the UK and global economy.”
