Russell Bedford International has been selected as one of just two finalists in the category of "Network of the Year" for the Digital Accountancy Awards 2021. Russell Bedford was announced as the runner up at an awards ceremony on Thursday, 4 November 2021, at The Waldorf Hilton, London.
Candidates for the award had to demonstrate the execution of profitable growth strategies, be recognised by the industry as a reputable brand that consistently delivers high quality professional services and have excelled in a number of key strategic and operational areas over the past 12 months.
Speaking about the nomination, Russell Bedford CEO, Stephen Hamlet, said: "It is a privilege to receive yet another award nomination from the International Accounting Bulletin at their prestigious Digital Accountancy Awards – I thank my team and our members for their contribution towards making this happen. Receiving recognition in this way provides a moment for reflection and time to consider how far we’ve come, and how much we have achieved. It’s important to take time for that in a world that never seems to slow down and is always asking more of us.”
He added: "Although we don’t need an award nomination to remind us of the incredible network we have or our incredible members who deliver, day in day out, top class services to clients around the globe, it is always nice to receive such acknowledgement from the profession. The contribution I see on a daily basis, from our people’s enthusiasm and eagerness to grow and develop, supporting the expansion and development of this network, makes my job an absolute joy.”
In conclusion Stephen said: "Although we were not winners on the night of the awards, we will continue to celebrate the many wins of the past year and look forward to even more success in 2022. Thank you to the International Accounting Bulletin and the Digital Accountancy Awards for their work in delivering exceptional publications and recognising excellence within the industry.”
