James Delve of Midlands based Accountants and Business Advisors is celebrating having been awarded prizes both Internationally and Regionally following the completion of his Advanced Stage Chartered Accountancy Exams.
James’ technical papers results were the fourth highest internationally and the highest in the Region for which he will receive recognition and the Strachan Prize at the International Order of Merit Awards and be awarded the John Ross Sergeant Memorial Award respectively. Internationally James was the highest placed candidate outside of London based firms.
Janet Morgan, Head of Audit & Assurance and a Partner at Smith Cooper commented: “We are incredibly proud of James and his recent success. We know how much effort and time he has put into studying towards his qualification and are so pleased his efforts have been recognised by these two awards. As a firm we have a philosophy of selecting and nurturing talented individuals and by doing so, can maintain the excellent levels of service for our clients. This award marks the start of what I am sure will be a long and exciting career for James at Smith Cooper.”
James added: “It is an honour to be awarded such prestigious prizes. I’ve put in a tremendous amount of hard work and determination but this has made it all seem worth it. I am so grateful to my friends, family and Smith Cooper for supporting me through it all.”
James will be presented with his awards at NCASS Annual Dinner later this month and at a second ceremony in London during May 2013.
