A TEAM of Forfar accountants has much to celebrate after their company was awarded Accountancy Firm of the Year for the fifth consecutive occasion.
Johnston Carmichael beat off stiff competition from Anderson Anderson Brown, Campbell Dallas, French Duncan and Grant Thornton to be named the winner of the prestigious award at the annual Scottish Accountancy Awards ceremony and dinner at a recent ceremony at Glasgow’s Hilton Hotel.
It was named Firm of the Year in its category at the inaugural awards in 2008 and retained the title in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Winning the Firm of the Year award was not the only accolade which the local company received on the night.
Iain Abernethy won the Training Manager of the Year award.
Roddy Anderson, managing partner at Johnston Carmichael’s Forfar office, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won this prestigious industry award for five years in a row and it speaks volumes about the commitment and dedication of our 450 people in our 11 offices across Scotland.
“However, our feet remain firmly on the ground and we will continue the work of building and developing Johnston Carmichael to ensure that our clients receive the advice they need to help them run and grow successful businesses.”
“In challenging times like these for the economy, all professional service firms have a key role to play in being proactive in supporting our clients to help them successfully address the wide range of issues businesses face today. We all have a role to play in helping to get the economy growing again.”
