The Australian Accounting Awards, in partnership with Intuit QuickBooks Australia, is the only national independent awards program for the accounting industry. Recognising excellence across a true cross-section of the accounting industry, the awards celebrate the contributions of both individuals and firms who are leading the way.
Partner Peter Fowler and Business Manager David Keith said that they were humbled to be recognised and proud to be a part of such an exclusive network.
Commenting on being shortlisted, Peter said, "Collins Hume's recognition for our contribution to NSW Northern Rivers industry reinforces the strength of our business in engaging with our clients and connecting with our community."
"As well as recognising exemplary skill and innovation, this year's awards program celebrates the impact of accountants on the health, wellbeing and lifestyle of their clients and employees which we have been asserting for a number of years."
Wendy Gleeson, Certified Practising Marketer at Collins Hume said, "The team has made sustained impact with clients and in the community ever since I've known them by demonstrating entrepreneurial spirit fuelled by innovation with exceptionally high client service. With such good business bones there's always something to write about, so it's a pleasure to consistently report on their progress and achievements at a national level year on year."
"By guiding others to develop purposeful businesses and make meaningful contributions to society we are leading the change we want in the world," David added.
"To a group of people who prioritise their clients and professionalism above all else, sincere congratulations from myself and the team at Accountants Daily," said Head of Editorial at Momentum Media Katarina Taurian.
"The material impact of an accountant in the lives of their clients should be sung from the rooftops, and Accountants Daily is proud to do that for the accounting profession."
The Finalist list, which was announced on Wednesday 17 April, features over 270 accounting professionals and firms across 32 categories. Winners of each category will automatically be shortlisted for the coveted Accountants Daily Excellence Award.
The Winners will be announced at a black-tie gala awards ceremony on 24 May at The Star Sydney.
