CBW said it was “honoured” with the accolade in recognition of its contribution to the association during DFK International’s virtual annual general meeting, which was last held online due to the pandemic.
The London-based firm joined DFK, which has more than 200 member firms based in 93 countries around the world, in 2015, and has since participated in conferences and events and promoted DFK.
CBW has also made a particular contribution to DFK committees, with managing partner Peter Winter currently serving as chairman of DFK UK and Ireland and sitting on DFK’s international advisory board.
Partner Robin Davis acts as chair of DFK’s international IT committee and head of Tax Tom Adcock represents the UK on DFK’s international tax committee. The firm also has representation on DFK’s international marketing committee.
Peter Winter, who has also sat on DFK’s International Board, said: “We are delighted and proud to have been named DFK International Firm of the Year. DFK International is a hugely important part of CBW and it allows our clients to have access to firms who offer the same high level of service, delivered by like-minded people, wherever they wish to do business.
“Over the last six years, we have developed extremely strong relationships with many of the DFK International firms. We share many clients across the world with our DFK colleagues, and those clients all enjoy a professional, hands-on, but crucially, one firm approach from working with DFK International.”
He added: “I would like to thank the DFK team and all our DFK colleagues across the world for welcoming us at so many conferences and for such strong levels of communication when it comes to working with clients and contacts, particularly during COVID-19, when we haven’t had the usual face-to-face contact that we all so enjoy.
“Finally, thank you to the CBW team for embracing all the opportunities that DFK International presents, from sitting on international committees and boards, attending conferences and groups, to hosting DFK wine tastings and social events, and raising money for DFK charities. This award is something that we have all worked hard to achieve together.”
