Browne Craine & Co (“Browne Craine”) is pleased to have sponsored the ACCA Isle of Man Top Student Award. The prize, which is given to the person with the highest marks overall during the year, was awarded to Alex Hullock for achieving 75% in the P5 exam in December 2017.

Alex, who is an Audit Senior at Harding Lewis, has been studying since he joined the company five and a half years ago. He has completed his Foundation in Accountancy (“FIA”) and has now successfully completed his ACCA studies.

“I’d like to congratulate Alex on winning the ACCA’s Isle of Man Top Student award, it’s a fantastic achievement,” said Stuart Foster, of Browne Craine and ACCA Panel Isle of Man Committee Member. “I’ve sat the same exams myself and it’s tough - studying and working full time takes a lot of commitment but becoming a fully qualified accountant at the end of it, makes it all worthwhile. At Browne Craine, we support lots of our staff to study for professional qualifications and pride ourselves on being a Platinum ACCA training provider.”

“I’m so pleased to have been presented with the ACCA’s Isle of Man Top Student award, it’s a perfect way to complete my studies,” enthused Alex. “Studying my accountancy exams has been challenging but I’m very happy to be a qualified accountant! I’d like to thank my colleagues for their support and MPES for helping me with my studies. I hope to continue learning and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. Finally, I’d also like to thank Browne Craine for supporting the award.”
