Advisory and accounting firm, HLB Mann Judd has been named “Best Accounting & Consulting Services Firm ($100-$200m revenue)” at this year’s Client Choice Awards.

This is the ninth year the HLB Mann Judd Association has won this award. It was also a finalist in the “Best CX Firm: Accounting & Consulting Services” category.

Now in their 20th year, the Client Choice Awards recognise best practice in the professional services sector. They are based on client feedback for professional services firms in Australia and New Zealand, which rate firms’ brands and performance in delivering services on a range of criteria including need, innovation and superior client service. The client ratings are independently researched and benchmarked by Beaton Research + Consulting. There were 250 entries in the Awards this year.

HLB Mann Judd Australasian Association chair, Tony Fittler, says it is an honour to win an award that is based on client feedback.

“Receiving the Client Choice Award shows that we are achieving our goal of providing the best service possible to our clients, and helping guide and advise them in their particular needs.

“The bar continues to rise as the professional services sector recognises the importance of prioritising clients’ experience. It is incredibly important to listen and learn where we need to provide value.

“We are committed to our clients and their success and we are proud that our clients have repeatedly voted us as one of Australia and New Zealand’s best accounting and consulting firms for service – it is the most important and valuable accolade we can receive,” he says.

Dr George Beaton, executive chair of Beaton, says:

“Our data shows that competition in the professional services market continues to intensify. Firms who win are those who meet clients’ expectations of more-for-less, earn and maintain their clients’ trust and best differentiate their client experience.

“The number and calibre of entrants to the Client Choice Awards have improved again this year. For more than 20 years, Beaton, through Beaton Benchmarks, has watched the professional services industry drive up client service standards. It is striking to watch and absorbing to see the heights to which firms are going soar by listening to client feedback and drawing on benchmarks to produce excellent client service.”

HLB Mann Judd wishes to congratulate the winners and finalists at this year’s awards.
