​Hornbys shortlisted for 2 awards

September 13, 2016

We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for 2 awards in the British Accountancy Awards

The event which celebrates excellence in the accountancy profession will be held at The Brewery in London on the 29th of November. The firm have now been nominated 3 out of the last 4 years and are extremely honoured to be listed alongside some well known businesses.

The first award is for Independent Accountancy Firm of the Year – an award we actually won last year. Firstly by winning the Northern region and then being crowned best regional winner for the whole of the UK – so no pressure this year!

The second award is an individual award for our Managing Director Paul Hornby. He’s been nominated for Accountancy Practitioner of the year. Paul has made the final 6 which sees him going up against accountants from the likes of KPMG.

The firm are obviously thrilled to be shortlisted again with Paul commenting this wouldn’t be possible without the excellent support from clients and admirers of the firm. He added ‘we run a close team here which we affectionately call the Hornby family. They really strive to give the best possible care to clients and are proud to be associated with the success we’ve had recently. Paul was also pleased with his personal nomination as it highlights that clients can receive access to the very best professionals right here in Cumbria.

We wish all the shortlisted companies every success on the night.
