New Director Appointed
23 July 2012
Boyce Managing Director Bernard Kennedy recently announced the appointment of Scott Christian to the firm’s directorship effective 1 July 2012.
In announcing the appointment, Bernard noted Scott’s enormous contribution since joining the firm as a cadet eleven years ago.
“Scott has shown loyalty and commitment to the firm and our clients from day one,” said Bernard.
“He willingly accepted transfers to a number of different Boyce offices seeing each move as an opportunity to broaden his knowledge and expand his accounting skills.
“The progression to directorship is just reward for Scott’s efforts.”
Scott commenced with Boyce in the Goulburn office where he combined work with tertiary studies at the University of Wollongong. He graduated as a Bachelor of Commerce in 2004 and then continued studying to qualify as a Chartered Accountant in 2006.
For a number of years, Scott has played a key role for the firm in interpreting and communicating information on a range of government assistance measures for both rural and non-rural businesses during times of drought and flooding. As well, his interest and expertise in management accounting led him to become an integral member of the firm’s Standards Group where he has assisted with the development and implementation of consistent and highly efficient systems and processes.
Stints in the Moree and Wagga offices have been followed by four and half years with the Boyce Dubbo team where Scott has played a key role in mentoring and developing younger accountants. He has also immersed himself in the Dubbo community undertaking committee roles with a number of local organisations.
Scott is highly regarded in the accounting profession and has recently stepped down from a term as chairman of “A Country Practice” – an organisation that provides development and networking opportunities for accountants in public practice.
At just 29 years of age, Scott has already achieved a lot in his career, but he typically is looking forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead.
“I see enormous potential for our regions,” said Scott.
“Technological developments will further increase the capacity for our agricultural businesses to grow the best food and fibre in the world, and will allow a whole range of new businesses to relocate from metro areas to the regions - the future is bright.”
