Judging of the award took place on the 18 November 2020, with 5 outstanding finalists in consideration:
- Kimberley Dwyer – Cooma
- Shannon Bow – Dubbo
- Chloe Montgomery – Goulburn
- Alison Smith – Moree
- Paige Deveraux – Wagga
Born and bred in Moree, Alison’s local knowledge, humbleness and genuine care for clients and the team really shone through. Her empathy for clients was a real standout, as was her pride in being part of the Boyce team and the local Moree community.
Approaching 10 years’ service with Boyce, Alison’s team describe her as a mentor in the office and someone who always goes above and beyond to help clients and staff. The team noted their appreciation of Alison’s extensive knowledge base, as well as her calm nature and support, to team and clients, especially during this year’s pandemic.
“Not only is Alison making a contribution in terms of technical client work, she is a great team member and positive ambassador for Boyce,” said Moree Director, Jono Hart.
“Alison shares her knowledge and expertise selflessly and displays a passion for her work that continues to inspire those around her. This award is very much deserved.”
Alison commented, “I am honoured to be chosen as this year’s TQ Employee of the Year, by the Directors and my colleagues. As the award is in recognition of Tony Quirk’s high-level achievements during his time at Boyce, it makes it even more humbling. It is also a huge achievement considering the significant contributions of the other four nominees to Boyce.”
The calibre of finalists was exceptional, and it was particularly exciting to see some of our newer team members being recognised by their peers for their contributions to the success of the Firm.
Please join us in congratulating Alison on becoming our 2020 Tony Quirk Winner.

As many of you would be aware, after practising as an accountant for the last 31 years, 23 of those years with Boyce, Dubbo Director Bernard Kennedy has left the firm to pursue his other passion. While Bernard could have continued as a Boyce Director for another 6 years under our retirement rules, he has decided the time is right for him to devote more time to his family’s farming and grazing interests and had his last day with Boyce on 30 June 2017.
