    representatives of whom/which

    Hello everyone,

    Here is a sentence from a book:

    This reflects the work of a substantial number of people, representatives of whom are acknowledged below.

    Can I say "representatives of which" in such sentences?

    Thank you.

    This reflects the work of a substantial number of companies/firms/agencies/groups, representatives of which are acknowledged below.

    That would have been acceptable.
