Accounting and financial firm, Prosperity Advisers, has won the ‘Fast-Growing Firm of The Year’ award at the Australian Accounting Awards 2015.
The Australian Accounting Awards are the only industry awards designed to showcase excellence across the accounting profession. With a broad range of categories that examine excellence across the breadth of the profession, the Awards provide a platform for industry leaders to be recognised.
Prosperity CEO, Allan McKeown, said that they were very proud of the collective efforts of their people across the Newcastle, Sydney and Brisbane offices.
“The Fast-Growing Firm of the Year Award is a wonderful recognition for the tremendous effort our team has put in supporting our five point growth strategy,” Allan said. “Our focus is on value added service rather than number crunching tasks means our clients receive advice that is more holistic and forward looking to assist them to drive innovation and make better decisions.”
“We recognises that the rate of business change continues at an increasing pace and we invest considerable time and resources in a disciplined planning process that keeps us at the forefront of those changes. Our innovative approach to advice have resulted in 2-year revenue growth of 29% in a period where research house IBIS have reported accounting firm growth to average just over 3% per annum.”
Prosperity Director of Business Services and Taxation, Megan Faraday-Bensley accepted the award on behalf of the 150 staff and thanked Prosperity’s clients for their continued support.
“Our strategy of embracing industry change and disruption as well as developing a culture that has enabled us to attract and retain good people has enabled us to continue our double digit growth,” Megan said.
The success comes just after winning an Edge Award for HR and Cultural Innovation in Miami, USA last month. The award was conferred by the Leading Edge Alliance, the second largest international association of accounting firms with 220 member firms globally.
