We are delighted to announce that last night MHA Carpenter Box Partner and Head of Cloud Accounting, Nathan Keeley won Practice Pioneer of the Year at the national Accounting Excellence Awards!

Of course, this year’s award ceremony was held virtually due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. However the Accounting Excellence team did a brilliant job in delivering an enjoyable awards show, hosted by comedian Naomi Cooper.

Pioneer of the Year

Nathan is a well-deserved winner of the Pioneer of the Year award. The judges commented:

“Nathan doesn’t only drive change in big organisations, his work is genuinely influencing the profession with important work done by his feedback into various software groups. If you were to imagine what an accountant should look like in five years, Nathan would be one to aspire to.”

Since joining MHA Carpenter Box in 2001 and subsequently becoming Partner in 2010, Nathan has worked tirelessly to facilitate efficiency within the practice through the adoption of new and existing technologies.  

His profile within the cloud space is significant and he has strong relationships with the main vendors. Consequently, Nathan has enhanced the firm’s overall reputation, attracting additional clients and new specialist cloud team members. He has also developed the cloud team’s capabilities to undertake system reviews for clients, providing added value and revenue for the firm. 

He is driving cloud adoption through our national (MHA) and global (Baker Tilly International) networks. He is creating app champions across the MHA network who can train clients wherever they are in the country.  Nathan is always happy to give his time to support staff, clients and connections. He is a true pioneer!

Nathan commented on his win:

This is huge recognition for both myself and the firm and evidences the hard work which has been put in over the last few years – this was not possible without the support of the firm and the great team we have at MHA Carpenter so thanks and congratulations should really go to all of them. Using this as an endorsement we will continue to strive to improve the firm to become the best that it can be and consequently benefit all of our staff and clients alike.

Congratulations to Nathan and a huge thank you to the Accounting Excellence team and category sponsors Sage!
