The Top People in Public Accounting - 2013

The most influential people in the field of accounting, as chosen by their peers.

The Influential's Influential The Influential's Influential

Each year as part of our Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting list, we ask candidates for the list to name who they think are the most influential people in the field — and here they are, ranked by the number of votes they received from the 103 candidates.

(Ordinarily we'd do a Top 10, but we actually had four people tied for the No. 10 spot: the AICPA's Mark Koziel and Jim Metzler, the PCAOB's Lewis Ferguson, and Sen. Max Baucus.)
