An accounts and audit team member at chartered accountants Naylor Wintersgill has won ‘Rising Star of the Year’ at the 2019 Yorkshire Accountancy Awards.
Emily Bebb, who started her accounting career at Naylor Wintersgill in 2011 as part of its apprenticeship programme, was recognised by the independent panel of judges as a “dedicated” team member who has shown a “strong commitment” to looking after the firm’s clients.
Bebb succeeded in winning the accolade, which celebrates an individual who stands out from their colleagues and who has made a significant impact on their firm, the profession and the wider community, against three other candidates shortlisted in the category from across the Yorkshire region.
Naylor Wintersgill managing director, Victoria Wainwright, said: “Our team is key to the overall success of Naylor Wintersgill and as a firm, we are committed to investing in the ongoing professional development of all our colleagues.
“As a highly professional and trusted member of our team, it’s been so rewarding to see Emily progress in her accountancy career. This award is well deserved recognition for all her hard work and dedication to our firm and our clients. We are all extremely proud of our ‘homegrown’ Emily.”
