Power Tynan has been nationally recognised at the 2015 Australian Accounting Awards, held in Sydney at the end of October.

Amanda Kenafake was awarded Executive of the Year as well as the AccountantsDaily Excellence Award, while Lauren Guymer was named Office Administrator of the Year.

Power Tynan were named as a finalist in five categories, being Graduate Program of the Year, Accounting Student of the Year (Ben Tansky), Executive of the Year (Amanda Kenafake), Office Administrator of the Year (Lauren Guymer) and Thought Leader of the Year (Paul Hilton).

“The AccountantsDaily Excellence Award recognises the top performer out of all of the category winners, so for Amanda to win this award shows we are achieving results in line with firms in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. This is testament to the way we approach our challenging environment in relation to the services we are providing,” said CEO Paul Hilton.

“To be named as a finalist and win these awards against the likes of KPMG, PWC, Ernst & Young, Grant Thornton, Pitcher Partners and RSM Bird Cameron is a fantastic achievement for a regional firm.”

Members of the Power Tynan team attended the five-star gala dinner held in Sydney, where the winners for each category were announced in front of 350 guests.

The Australian Accounting Awards are in their second year, with Power Tynan winning two awards in 2014. These national awards recognise excellence across the entire accounting industry, promoted by the AccountantsDaily online newsletter and international software company Reckon.
