The International Accounting Bulletin (IAB) named Baker Tilly International 'Network of the Year' at their 2016 annual award ceremony.
Commenting on the award, Mr Ted Verkade, CEO and President of Baker Tilly International, said “I am exceptionally proud that the network has been recognised by IAB for our outstanding growth, our innovation and commitment to delivering excellent client service, and for being the first network to obtain the ACCA Approved Employer status award in professional development.”
Mr Marios A. Klitou, CEO of Baker Tilly in South East Europe stated “Our goal is to continue offering our customers professional service of the highest standards. This award is a great achievement for us collectively as a network and a valuable independent endorsement of the successful growth strategy that all member firms of Baker Tilly International are guided by. “
The annual IAB Awards celebrate excellence in the accounting profession and bring together some of the most prominent people in the industry. The awards were judged by an independent panel and networks had to demonstrate the execution of profitable growth strategies during the past 12 months where they had to have excelled in a number of key strategic and operational areas. They also had to be recognised by the industry as a reputable brand that consistently delivers high quality professional services.
Judges praised the network’s innovation in its implementation of Global Focus, the new audit methodology adopted by all member firms of Baker Tilly International, and on being the first network to have achieved the ACCA Approved Employer status award in professional development.
