A Trust Accountant from Alex Picot Trust has been named top Jersey student for 2016 by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).
At the annual Jersey Society of Chartered and Certified Accountants dinner held on Friday 14 October, Amy Brown was presented with a trophy by ACCA for achieving the highest academic marks in the final papers of the ACCA qualification.
Amy joined Alex Picot in 2011 from Jersey College for Girls and commenced the Foundations in Accountancy before moving onto the ACCA qualification, studying through BPP Professional Education. She made the move from Alex Picot’s Audit department to the Alex Picot Trust team in July 2015.
Dr Mary Bishop, ACCA’s director of learning, said: “Many congratulations from all at ACCA to Amy for such an outstanding achievement. We commend her dedication and commitment to passing the exams, and for being named top ACCA Jersey student. It’s such a delight to see someone succeed in such a fantastic way, and we all wish Amy the very best for what I am sure will be a very bright future.”
