Carbon Group has been shortlisted as a finalist to win six awards in the 2017 Australian Accounting Awards, hosted by Accountants Daily, Australia’s top publication for the accounting industry.
The six categories are bookkeeper of the year, bookkeeping firm of the year, boutique firm of the year, diversified firm of the year, fast growing firm of the year, and marketing program of the year. Founded in 2014, Carbon Group has grown from just 14 staff in one location, to staff of over 70 across three locations in WA and one in Melbourne. Now in its fourth consecutive year, the Australian Accounting Awards, which covers 26 categories, recognises individual excellence in accounting, from the profession’s most senior ranks to its rising stars.
Winners in the individual categories will automatically be shortlisted for the coveted Accountants Daily Excellence Award. In addition, Carbon Group will be in the running for the Editor’s Choice Award, which recognises an individual’s outstanding contribution to the Accounting Industry.
“We broadened the awards program this year to better recognise the breadth and depth of the talent in this industry. For those who have made it to the finalist stage, congratulations, you have secured your place amongst Australia’s leading accounting professionals,” said Terry Braithwaite, head of partnerships at Accountants Daily.
“We are set for a superb evening when the awards are presented. The judges have a tough job on their hands this year and there no doubt will be huge excitement to hear their verdicts.”
Nathan Hood and Jamie Davison, Founding Partners of Carbon Group said they were humbled by the nominations.
“Carbon Group’s recognition for its excellent contribution to the business community reinforces the strength of the brand in connecting with our audience and engaging with our customers,” Hood added.
The winners will be announced at a black tie awards dinner on Friday, 26 May at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth.
