DFK International Wins Association of Year Honor

DFK International was named Association of the Year at the International Accounting Bulletin Industry Forum and Awards ceremony earlier this month in London.

The finalists and winners were selected by an independent panel of judges. To win the category, DFK International had to demonstrate the execution of profitable growth strategies, be recognized by the industry as a reputable brand that consistently delivers high-quality professional services and excelled in a number of key strategic and operational areas over the past 12 months.

DFK International’s entry was based upon its contribution to advancing the profession for more than 50 years and its significant progress in recent years in gaining new members, enhancing members’ cooperation and creating special value for members through its investment in IT infrastructure.

In announcing the winners, the International Accounting Bulletin said: “DFK International is the second fastest-growing organization in the top 10 global associations in financial year 2014. It has expanded its presence beyond its traditional footholds of Europe and North America and added members in all regions.

“DFK International sustained growth despite some challenging conditions in key markets as well as its all-rounded nomination with a particular focus on sustainability, and its internationally driven mind set and resilience in front of adversity were all contributing factors for the association’s win in this category.”

Demetris Demetriou, president of DFK International, said the award “will no doubt help to inspire us to achieve our greater ambitions going forward.”
