HONG KONG, 9 July 2018 /Medianet International-AsiaNet/

--Five Chartered Accountants in Hong Kong and China have received Fellowships, 
the highest recognition in the accounting profession, from Chartered 
Accountants Australia and New Zealand President Jane Stanton.

This comes as part of a multi-country tour by Ms Stanton, whereby thirty-six 
Chartered Accountants across Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China and the 
United Kingdom are also being recognised for their achievements.

Ms Stanton is visiting Asia and the United Kingdom to meet with partner 
organisations to foster and strengthen relationships, and recognise those 
Chartered Accountants who are leading the way.

Chartered Accountant Fellowships are awarded for outstanding career 
achievements and contributions to the profession through business and community 
endeavours while maintaining the highest standards of integrity and judgement.

The five Fellowship recipients to be recognised in Hong Kong are:

Travis Huggins
John Timpany
Robert Quinlivan
Eddie Te
Dylan Tey

Ms Stanton said that the Chartered Accountants designation is internationally 
recognised for its commitment to building sustainable prosperity for clients 
and communities while maintaining the highest ethical standards, and is 
becoming increasingly important across Asia and the UK as businesses face 
unprecedented levels of uncertainty.

"With diversity and disruption a new global norm, the accounting profession is 
also evolving fast," said Ms Stanton.  

"The traditional view of the profession – as an analytical and black-and-white 
role – is transforming into a profession of the future – as sense makers, 
growth accelerators, critical thinkers and digitally savvy.

"Small to medium sized businesses are telling us that Chartered Accountants are 
playing a key role in their success – serving as trusted advisors who predict 
risks and identify growth opportunities. 

"We know that shifting employment arrangements, demographic changes, 
technological advancements and globalisation are drastically altering the 
operating environment, but we also know that the most agile businesses are the 
healthiest and the most sustainable. 

"Our recent report, Future of Business, found that 55 per cent of businesses 
who reported being above average in terms of agility were also experiencing 
above average revenue growth. Of those that rated themselves below average in 
terms of agility, only 16 per cent said they were growing faster than average.

"Across Hong Kong, there are around 1100 Chartered Accountants with experience 
across the changing context of every commercial, community and government 

"Our ethical standards and values, financial proficiency, industry and business 
management expertise and future focused mindset means our profession is ideally 
placed to guide businesses through the age of uncertainty," said Ms Stanton.
