A Bridlington accountant has won a prestigious accountancy award after beating off intense competition from around the country
Danielle Keeping of Lloyd Dowson, Chartered Accountants, Tax and Business Advisors is celebrating after winning a top award at a recent Institute of Chartered Accountants Awards Ceremony.
Danielle was short listed for the award following the submission of a written application and completion of an interview, being part of the final seven.
Her achievements were realised when she fought off strong competition to be named ‘Young Accountant of the Year’.
Danielle started at Lloyd Dowson in 2013 after completing a Maths degree at the University of York. She had already begun an accountancy course as she wanted to get a feel for the profession and following this study she knew she wanted to continue with a career in accountancy. In early 2015 the board at Lloyd Dowson offered Danielle a Chartered Accountancy training contract.
Danielle qualified as a Chartered Accountant in September 2018. Since then she has never looked back, championing ‘Making Tax Digital’ for Lloyd Dowson clients to ensure they are MTD compliant and co-ordinating a programme of client support and training. Her role at Lloyd Dowson also includes working with a variety of clients, managing audits, training staff members and developing as a senior member of the team.
Danielle said, “Winning the Young Accountant of the Year award is a huge honour and makes me proud to be recognised for all that I have achieved this year. I would like to say a big thank you to Lloyd Dowson for their continued support and for the opportunities I have received which have played a significant role in helping me to win this award.”
Chairman of Lloyd Dowson, David Dowson added “We are extremely proud of Danielle winning this award. It is testament to the hard work and dedication that she shows to the profession and her role at Lloyd Dowson.”
