Forrester Boyd is delighted to congratulate Ben Chapman on qualifying as a Chartered Certified Accountant.
Local lad Ben has passed his final examination of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification, joining the growing team of accountancy professionals across the firm. Ben joined Forrester Boyd’s Louth branch in 2012, straight from the Sixth Form at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar, Alford, and began training towards the AAT qualification. He works for a wide range of clients, providing general accounts preparation.
Now a qualified ACCA affiliate, Ben said; “Having no more exams means that I can start to work on developing a great client portfolio. I would also like to use my experience to help my student colleagues pass their qualifications. With the training still fresh in my mind, I am sure that I can offer them some additional support.”
In his spare time, Ben supports Burnley Football Club, competes in Triathlons and goes to the local gym.
Forrester Boyd’s Head of HR, Chantelle Rogers, said “The professional accountancy qualifications are extremely tough and working whilst studying is not easy. These fantastic results prove that hard work and determination really do pay off.”
“We pride ourselves on nurturing top quality accountants for this complex business environment and Ben is a tribute to that.”
Alan Nesbitt, partner at the firm’s Louth office said “I am delighted for Ben in achieving his ACCA accreditation. With a growing practice in Louth, it is very rewarding to see our local talent being able to develop and hone their skills in their home town. This is just another example of the success of our strategy in recruiting and developing home grown talent.”
