It is with a huge amount of pride and delight that we announce that we have once again been awarded the accolade of Accountancy Firm of the Year by the North West Society of Chartered Accountants. It was a great achievement to be shortlisted; to win, however, is just magnificent.
The award was presented on 25 November at the annual awards dinner at Stanley House Hotel in Mellor which was attended by fellow accountants and other professionals from around the North West.
The award for Accountancy Firm of the Year focused on the nominees’ unique way of doing business, their ability to respond to challenging times and, most importantly, their customer service record with particular emphasis on how they have been actively helping their clients through the recent recession.
Napthens Solicitors sponsored the category and Keith Melling, partner at the firm, presented the award on the night. He particularly applauded the firm for expanding our services to provide tailor-made packages for barristers through their www.cassonsforcounsel.co.uk website.
He said: “The winner has continued to develop – going the extra mile for their clients. They invest in their staff and use technology to their best advantage to continue the development of new niche markets.”
We’re thrilled to have won this award for the second successive year and it is testament to the continued hard work and dedication of our staff, who genuinely do go the ‘extra mile’ every day to help our clients. We are particularly delighted that the judges recognised our efforts to expand our business into more specialised fields and embrace new technology during a very difficult economic climate.
There were celebrations in our offices on Monday morning when the “no alcohol” rule was pushed to one side as we enjoyed champagne and cakes!
We’d like to thank especially those clients of the firm who were invited to give a testimonial for our submission for the award. Without doubt their kind words influenced the judges’ decision. We thank all of our clients and friends for their unfailing support.
