We’re double award winners at regional accountancy awards!

Naylor Wintersgill have won ‘Independent Firm of the Year’ alongside Victoria Wainwright who was also named ‘Managing Partner of the Year’ at the Yorkshire Accountancy Awards 2023.

The Yorkshire Accountancy Awards celebrates Yorkshire’s outstanding accountants and firms. An independent panel of local and national experts from the profession, which this year included the President of the ICAEW for West and North Yorkshire Michael Lewis, judge the awards.

Firms entering the independent firm of the year category were assessed on their recent achievements, current product and service capabilities, and how they differentiate their offering for their clients. They were also judged on their overall engagement within the Yorkshire region over the last twelve months.

The judges’ spoke of Naylor Wintersgill stating, “Naylor Wintersgill stands out in a highly competitive category. It’s an integral provider in the Yorkshire region that consistently and successfully provides an expert service to clients, a trend that’s set to continue as it brings more specialties in-house. This firm is also big on local engagement, including with charities.”

The individual finalists in the managing partner of the year category were assessed on their contribution to their firm’s growth, dedication to clients, and their contribution to employee development and welfare. There was also a strong focus placed on the managing partner’s broader contribution to the profession and local business community.

At the awards ceremony, the judges’ declared, “Victoria Wainwright from Naylor Wintersgill is an active leader who is still very much involved in maintaining a portfolio. As well as leading the team, Victoria also heads up employee engagement plans to ensure she offers her staff opportunities to enhance their development.”

Victoria, who started her accountancy career as the very first apprentice at Naylor Wintersgill reacted to the double award win by commenting, “I’m so proud to lead such a dedicated team who I believe are the key to the overall success of Naylor Wintersgill.
