Stanes Rand was extremely proud to be accepted as members of INPACT International in 2014, acting as sole representatives for Cambridgeshire and beyond. INPACT are a world-class accounting alliance comprising more than 140 accounting firms across 60 countries worldwide. Being accepted as a member reinforced our credentials as a firm that can get work done globally. We can continue to deliver services to the many clients who grow and expand on an international scale, wherever they need them and to the standard they have become accustomed to.
INPACT is no doubt going from strength to strength – having been presented with a Highly Commended award in the Association of the Year category at the 2014 International Accounting Bulletin (IAB) Industry Forum and Awards, they have now received the Global Rising Star Award at this years’ IAB Awards.
These Awards celebrate worldwide best practice in accounting and are based on individual excellence, innovative practices and commercial performance.
The judges recognised the great strides INPACT has made toward becoming a stronger global force over the past 12 months. The Association is now one of the largest international associations of accountancy firms in the world.
The judges also praised the significant progress it demonstrated towards its long-term goals, in particular global integration of its member firms.
Speaking about the awards, INPACT International President Lena Fiedler said “We are delighted to have won the IAB’s ‘Rising Star Association’ of the year. The award reflects the successful implementation of our long-term strategy and our commitment to providing innovative ways to support the needs of our member firms, whilst continuing to grow the Association.”
Commenting on the awards, INPACT International Executive Director Tendai White said “I am delighted that we have been recognised in these Awards. The Association is forging ever closer circles with its Members and we have a strong sense of shared purpose. This is translating itself into an innovative and supportive body that welcomes new members and fosters sharing of best practice.”
