Thomson Reuters Executives Named to List of Most Influential People in Tax and Accounting

NEW YORK Accounting Today named two Thomson Reuters executives to its 2013 list of the Top 100 Most Influential People, a group which features thought leaders and change agents shaping the future of the accounting industry.

Selected to the list the past three years, Brian Peccarelli, president of the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters, was recognized this year for his leadership in an increasingly global landscape. “Even as he keeps Thomson Reuters on track in terms of serving accountants needs,” the magazine writes, “Peccarelli also is leveraging the company’s enormous worldwide footprint to help professionals in public practice and industry function better in an era of rapid globalization.”

Underscoring this global reality, according to a 2012 survey by KPMG, is the fact that companies in the Americas are increasingly viewing worldwide expansion as a key part of their growth strategies, and most plan to boost their foreign workforces to support that growth.

Jon Baron was named to the Most Influential list for the eighth time. The magazine cited his “pivotal role” as president and managing director of the Professional unit within the Tax & Accounting business, which is an “industry-leading provider of tools and resources for tax preparation and accounting professionals.”

The publication’s annual list profiles a wide-range of industry influencers including government regulators, accounting firm partners, executives, educators, and activists. To read the full article, go to Top 100 Most Influential People.
