We were extremely excited when our own David Herd was shortlisted for Insider’s Young Accountant of the Year, and whilst he may not have taken home top prize on the night, we are hugely proud to have David recognised amongst the North West’s best young talent.

The Young Professionals Awards celebrate those under the age of 35 that demonstrate outstanding dedication, expertise and ambition, with David shortlisted in a hotly-contested category for Young Accountant 2019.

David is an integral part of the Champion Accountants team in Manchester, acting as Client Manager, Lead R&D Tax Advisor and driving Business Development, with his actions helping to save his clients a significant sum in tax each year through effective planning and advice.

“David is an exceptional talent and deserved his place among the North West’s best,” explains Gill Molloy, group tax director. “His nomination is testament to his expertise and exceptional relationships that he holds with clients. He’s got such a bright future ahead and is a real asset to Champion.”
