KPMG’s ‘best and brightest’ are celebrating after 14 team members from the firm’s offices across the world were recognised in this year’s ICAS Top 100 Young Chartered Accountants (CAs) competition.

The CA’s which made this year’s list include colleagues based in the Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen offices, and others now working either on secondment or long-term at the firm’s offices in Cambridge, Toronto, Bologna and Sydney.

The ICAS Top Young CAs competition is the leading industry body’s annual showcase of the most promising, talented CAs in the world of accounting, finance and business.

The CAs selected in this year’s list all faced an anonymous and rigorous judging process focused on finding young professionals who are outstanding in their field. An overall winner – the One Young CA 2020 – will be chosen from the Top 100 list in October. 

Ruth Wallace, corporate tax director, who was among the KPMG team members making this year’s list, said: “I’m delighted to be recognised in this year’s list of the Top 100 Young CAs. This year has been particularly challenging for businesses in Scotland, and it’s great to see success recognised within both KPMG and the wider business community.

“To be placed among so many of my very talented colleagues makes the award feel even more special. My focus now is on continuing to support our clients, across all industries, to get through the next few months and look towards long-term growth and success.”

Bruce Cartwright CA, ICAS chief executive, added: “I would like to congratulate all of the exceptional CAs who made it on to this year’s Top 100 Young CAs list. It is a great achievement to make it onto the list and it presents a wonderful chance for these talented young CAs to be recognised by their peers.

“This year’s awards take place against a backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic. The world will need accountants, of all ages, experience and diversity of background, as we navigate the challenging economic and personal impact of this crisis.

“The attributes we highlight in our categories – talent, trust and technology, will help us get there. We applaud the qualities exhibited by these Top 100 CAs aged 35 and under, selected by our panel of expert judges, and indeed many more beyond this group.”
