Dubbo Accountant wins Employee of the Year award
14 December 2016
The Directors of Boyce Chartered Accountants, are proud to announce Dubbo’s Accountant, Meggan Kendall, as the winner of the firm’s prestigious “Tony Quirk Employee of the Year” award for 2016.
The employee award was initiated by the Boyce directors in 2008 to honour fellow director and friend, the late Tony Quirk. Tony joined Boyce in 1991 and became the youngest-ever director appointed in the firm. He was well on the way to forging an outstanding public accounting career before he tragically died at the age of just 34.
Tony Quirk’s memory lives on at Boyce through this highly coveted award. Finalists from each of the Boyce offices are selected by their peers to be judged against criteria that encapsulate Tony’s contribution to the firm such as demonstrating a genuine care for clients, contributing to the social fabric of Boyce, acting in a professional manner, living the firm’s values on a daily basis and meeting the high performance expectations of the role within Boyce.
The judging panel, which this year included Boyce’s Independent Chairman Mike Willis, Director Jono Forrest, Director Carmen Caldwell, HR Director Simon Sellars and the 2014 TQ Employee of the Year award winner, Brian Wray, unanimously selected Meggan as the stand-out from this year’s five finalists for her outstanding work.
Boyce Managing Director, Phil Alchin, acknowledged Meggan as a very deserving recipient of the 2016 TQ Employee of the Year award.
“Meggan’s care for clients, strong work ethic and the enthusiasm for social and community events that she demonstrates every day in her role are extraordinary and it was very clear to see from the submission for the TQ Award that she met and exceeded all of the criteria for the Award, so is a very worthy winner” said Phil.
Meggan commenced with Boyce as a fresh faced cadet in 2010 in the Dubbo office. Meggan is a respected team member of the entire Boyce team and it is easy to understand how both the team and clients enjoy working with Meggan.
“Meggan always exceeds her targets, and provides the highest level of care to her clients every day. Most impressively, she leads the Boyce Dubbo community involvement, with coordination of blood donations, Meals on Wheels, and has participated in the City2Surf for five years in a row” said Dubbo Director Scott Christian.
The Boyce directors are heartened to see the extremely high calibre of nominees and finalists being recognised annually by their peers through the TQ Award process, reinforcing the philosophy of excellence that is central to Boyce.
Phil acknowledged the achievements and contribution of the four other finalists from across the Boyce offices –
- Rowena Dowling (Cooma)
- Deanne Arthur (Moree)
- Joel Goring (Goulburn), and
- Hamish Cullenward (Wagga Wagga)
Phil said that each of the finalists would have been a worthy winner of the overall award, and had contributed immensely to the ongoing success of the firm.
