ACAUS worth celebrating

This is an article published in the Winter 2021 edition of 'Reflections' magazine. Reflections is written for retired partners with what used to be Deloitte Haskins and Sells. Deloitte then split to merge with different firms. The UK (and other countries / offices) merged with Coopers and Lybrand at the start of 1990 to become Coopers & Lybrand Deloitte. (CLD). The US (and some other countries /offices) elected to merge with Touche Ross to become Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu. Today they are commonly referred to Deloitte. CLD meantime merged with Price Waterhouse to become Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC). Roger Musson - who was a partner with both DHS and CLD is featured in this article. Roger was our second ACAUS president and interviewed with us when Ian Wise wrote 'ACAUS at 40'.This was published earlier in 2021 (available on Amazon). This then led to Roger sharing his recollections of his time in New York with Reflections magazine.
