Gordon Cowie MBE: From Balance Sheets to Bed Pans

In 1982 my professional (ICAS) practice career took me to The Big Apple a few months before the incorporation of ACAUS. I went to work with Roger Musson, the first ACAUS President following on from founder Angus McDowell. I lived and worked in the USA until 1985 having taken over from Roger as the Deloitte Haskins & Sells UK/US Liaison Partner in the USA.

I guess my most memorable claim to ACAUS fame, as Ian Wise reports in his book ‘ACAUS The First 40 Years’, was finding haggis for 150 diners at the very first formal ACAUS dinner in 1983 at Windows on the World atop the late Twin Towers... or, as Roger Musson used to refer to it from our offices on Floor 100, “the office canteen”!
