Accountex announced the winners of the 2016 Practitioner Excellence Awards at their annual accounting technology conference and expo. Honorees will be recognized on Thursday, November 17th at a private party in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Accountex Practitioner Excellence Awards recognize firms and accounting professionals that display excellence in service to the accounting community. Honorees are helping to shape the profession for the future. The awards are a prestigious recognition for a very small group of professionals who have displayed excellence beyond their peers in a given award category. There are only three awards being given in 2016, all reviewed and chosen by a panel of distinguished and veteran members of the accounting community. Award categories and winners include:
1. Philanthropic Excellence - This award is given to an individual or firm that has repeatedly made a difference through philanthropic work in the accounting profession, in their community and/or with causes that need attention. Winner: Caleb L. Jenkins of RLJ Financial Services.
2. Millennial Award - This award distinguishes the future of the accounting industry by showcasing millennials who are paving the way for the upcoming generation. The victor of this award is a practitioner who is client-centric and sees the needs of the future and demonstrates positive change for the profession. Their passion is contagious and leads the way toward augmented widespread technology adoption. Winner: Jillian Smith, CPA of Kuberneo CPA
3. Forward Adopting Firm Award - The firm that receives this award will not only already be adopting cloud technologies but will also be implementing them in their clients’ services, being competitive, and consistently raising the bar in the accounting industry. Winner: BooXkeeping, Corp.
