Third year in a row for Carrick Aland!
Carrick Aland Group became a national winner at the Australian Accounting Awards in Sydney on the weekend.
Director Greg Burton said he was thrilled for Carrick Aland to be named Boutique Firm of the Year (20+ Employees) as it was one of the premium group categories of the awards program.
“To record a third straight win at the Australian Accounting Awards is fantastic recognition of the client-focused results we deliver and one very few other accounting and financial services firms in Australia have been able to achieve.”
“We are incredibly proud of the efforts of our whole team who are committed to delivering a unique client experience,” Greg said.
“Our amazing people who genuinely enjoy strong, longstanding working relationships with our wonderful clients are the key reason we have been in business since 1953.”
Whilst COVID-19 restrictions imposed the day before prevented Carrick Aland personnel attending in person, Associate Daniel Bartkowski did a great job in accepting the award via live stream in Dalby.
“We are excited to win this award as a regional accounting firm operating outside the major business hubs, still able to secure great staff and such a broad range of clients from the farming sector to mining services, to the retail industry and trade services which is a great reflection of the strengths of our local communities,” Daniel added.
The 2021 Australian Accounting Awards recognise excellence across the entire accounting industry, and showcases the individuals and firms which are leading the way in the industry.
This year, a record 621 award submissions were received across 19 individual and 15 group categories, with 300 shortlisted as finalists, and 34 deemed as winners.
AccountantsDaily editor Jotham Lian said the awards play an important role in recognising the hard work and dedication shown by the accounting profession in a trying year marked by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The sheer tenacity and resilience shown by practitioners across the country over the past year has been nothing short of amazing and it makes me so proud to advocate on behalf of the profession,” he said.
Carrick Aland was also nominated as 2021 finalists for Firm of the Year, Innovator of the Year, Multiservice Firm of the Year and Regional/Suburban Firm of the Year. ‘Boutique’ firms play an important role in servicing their local communities and are increasingly using their small-firm appeal to secure and diversify their client base. This award recognises the boutique firm in the accounting industry that most effectively drove business growth during the 2020 calendar year, utilising a range of business development principles and tactics.
