FROM THE FORWARD: It seems appropriate to title this book a biography rather than a history, in part because the Touche Ross story is a story of people and personalities. Moreover, history con-notes an emphasis on the past, which may be of limited interest to those who are preoccupied with today's problems. Biography however signals that the subject may still be alive, with a future, and worth knowing. In the summer of 1972, anticipation of new things to come was in the air. In a democratically-determined succession, a new Managing Partner had been elected — young in years, but mature in experience and demonstra-ted ability. He would assume the duties of his pre-decessor, who had presided over a decade of remarkable growth. The expectations that accompany a change of leadership were blended with the assurance of a con-tinued balance in management as represented by the re-elected Chairman and other members of the Board of Directors, including the former Managing Partner. To assist in the preparation of a permanent record of the firm's first quarter century, TEMPO enlisted the services of a writer without previous knowledge of the organization, who therefore might be expected to treat his subject with objectivity. He here testifies that he has tried to do so. The following pages are in effect an outside auditor's report of certain aspects of performance, together with a kind of management survey. True to Touche Ross termin-ology, an 'integrated approach' has been applied in tracing the relations of past to present, the evolution of ideas, the contributions of leaders, and the interaction of the firm with its environment. There emerges a prospect for the future so promising as to invite the confidence of present and future clients, and the enthusiasm of all who are associated in the practice of accounting, tax, and management consulting under the Touche Ross name throughout the world.
