Smythe Ratcliffe LLP is proud to be British Columbia’s 9th largest accounting firm, as announced in 2014 by Business in Vancouver, and the 25th largest accounting firm in Canada as ranked by The Bottom Line.
It has been a momentous year for Smythe Ratcliffe marked by significant growth of our cross-border and advisory practices, manager and partner promotions, as well as many successful business events.
The largest business event we hosted this year was our annual 2014 Cross-Border Business Forum in May. We extended the conference material to cover business expansion into the United States, Mexico and Europe, specifically the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Ireland and Germany. We are aware of the international nature of business and are proud to have brought 25 PKF International colleagues to our clients and contacts in Vancouver. Through our affiliation with PKF we are connected to over 300 member firms in 125 countries around the world.
Our firm growth is also distinguished by the recent promotion of Camellia Ho, CA to partner at our Vancouver office. Camellia has been with our firm for 13 years where she started as a summer student in 2001. Camellia is now one of 15 partners at Smythe Ratcliffe. In addition, were the promotions of Albert Ho, CA, Emily Mahannah, CA, and Dora Sze, CA, to manager and Alyssa McKinney to marketing manager.
Earlier this year, we were pleased to announce Mike Berris, CA, CBV, had joined our firm as partner to lead our valuations and advisory practice. Mike joined our firm just in time to congratulate senior manager Alex Wong, CA, CBV on winning the George Ovens Award honoured by The Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators. The award celebrated Alex for receiving the highest mark in Canada on the final Membership Qualification Exam (MQE).
These successes are significant contributions to the firm and indication of our continued growth. We are very proud of our people and the level of commitment to Smythe Ratcliffe.
