Chartered accountant Renu Chand says she is humbled by a top accounting award given to her.

Mrs Chand was among 144 chartered accountants worldwide awarded the Chartered Accountants and New Zealand Fellowships for contributions to their community.

“I am very proud to be a member of Fiji Institute of Accountants and Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, two esteemed accounting bodies which promote the highest level of quality, integrity and professionalism in the accounting profession,” Mrs Chand said.

“I am hopeful that this award will inspire other local accountants to uphold the highest level of responsibility in the work they carry out and having a global mindset to embrace the fast changing environment we operate in.”

Mrs Chand has more than 20 years’ experience as a chartered accountant in Fiji and New Zealand and is partner at KPMG Fiji.

“A Fellowship recognises the outstanding achievement and contribution of members to the accounting profession,” says Kirsten Patterson, NZ Country Head of Chartered Accountants ANZ.

“Our 2016 Fellows highlight the wide-ranging pro-bono work done by members for local community organisations, often drawing on their professional knowledge and experience.”

A recent survey shows chartered accountants average more than three hours a week volunteering or working pro bono for not-for-profit organisations. Ms Patterson says Fellowships are especially powerful because they are conferred by fellow Chartered Accountants ANZ members.
