John Barton CA
Throughout the year, ICAS will be sharing the real and inspiring stories of CAs and their experiences as part of our initiative – Proud to be a CA. Our members should be rightly proud of the 'CA' badge and it should be recognised for its value and meaning.
Having qualified as a CA more than 50 years ago, John Barton has seen how the qualification has evolved to become so much more than just accounting.
Beginning his career in a financial role, John went on to move into the C-suite, becoming CEO of JIB group and holding roles on the boards of Next and easyJet.
“Without the ICAS qualification I could not have done any of those things,” said John.
Hear from John on why he believes that being a CA means being a respected member of a wider business community.
