Dodworth named Young Chartered Accountant of the Year

Jonathan Dodworth has been awarded the prestigious title of Young Chartered Accountant of the Year in the West Midlands.

Jonathan, 34, a director at business advisory firm Deloitte, collected the award at the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales’ (ICAEW) annual awards, which was held at the Botanical Gardens on Monday 10 May.

He said: “I was thrilled to be short-listed for the award but winning it was a complete shock. I really enjoy the work that I do, and the clients and teams that I work with, and so to be rewarded in this way is a great honour.”

Jonathan trained at the firm’s office in Cambridge, where he won national and local prizes in his professional exams, before going on secondment to Deloitte in Sydney for two years. He joined the Birmingham office in 2005.

As a director within Deloitte’s audit practice, Jonathan specialises in auditing and advising both listed and private real estate and construction businesses. He recently provided accounting advice to several FTSE100s, who have implemented Deloitte’s innovative pension funding arrangements.

Richard Edwards, Deloitte Midlands practice senior partner, said: “Jonathan has made an outstanding contribution to the firm. He has delivered excellent client service, as well as achieving business development success. He has also been a great coach and mentor to our people.

“His award is thoroughly deserved.”
