The New South Wales-based winners of ifa sister title SMSF Adviser’s first SMSF and Accounting Awards have been revealed.
At a function in Sydney last night, winners for the inaugural, state-based SMSF and Accounting Awards – organised in conjunction with SuperConcepts – were announced to a crowd of over 250 professionals.
The SMSF and Accounting Awards are the first of their kind in Australia, and recognise those professionals who are setting the benchmark for excellence in their provision of services to clients in their home state.
“We recognise that national awards programs aren’t always the right fit for professionals who are concentrated on their locale, and we are pleased that we can acknowledge their contribution to the industry,” said SMSF Adviser’s head of partnerships Terry Braithwaite.
“Congratulations to all finalists and winners for their outstanding achievements at the very first SMSF and Accounting Awards.”
The judges commented on the exceptional quality of nominees this year, and particularly remarked on the efforts firms and individuals are going to with innovation and client servicing standards.
