Well, he's recognizable, but I would suggest bringing the pronounced shadows in the cheek bones and back of the jaw to a softer fade, as right now, it appears as though he's got 80 year old skin on a crackhead's skull. I could tell it was him, but your highlights and shadows are both so intense, it feels more like you created this in engine oil with masking tape as border control.
I'm not trying to be rude or mean, I'm just pointing out what first comes to the eye. You've got the tie and jacket textures absolutely awesome.


Now that I look at it, it could be moreso, that the highlights on his skin, are matching to the 'whiteness' of a caucasian person's skin - if you bring the highlights to a darker appearance, the cheek and jaw crevices wouldn't look so sharp and deep.

A couple other things you might want to consider, is blending the edges around the figure into the rest of the background - by either using a fuzzer/blender stick, or crosshatching the background with the same length as what you'd put around the edge of the figure, as it is currently visible that you've short-scribbled around the edge of the figure, and bringing a bit more shading into the collar - granted it IS a white collar, but even they have notable shading.

I'm not just trying to troll on you, these are all things I struggled with, and had to teach myself how to resolve over the years.
