Our annual Student of the Year award is given to one of the firm’s rising stars in recognition of the contribution they have made to the firm.

We’re very proud to announce that Daisy Hart has received this award for her 2023 studies. We also recognise the dedication and hard work of runners up Nathan Brearley and Eden Reynolds. 

This award was established in 2019 in memory of our colleague Janet Fautley, a leading light for us in continuous learning and excellence and recognises the extraordinary talent of our people. 

Daisy joined Kreston Reeves in 2019 in a temporary position as part of the administration and front of house team. Today, she is on the verge of qualifying as a chartered accountant specialising in charity finance and audit. 

In addition to securing excellent grades in her accountancy exams, Daisy also sits on the executive committee of the Kreston Reeves Foundation and is a trustee of an animal sanctuary in Kent. 

On receiving the award, Daisy commented: “This is an enormous surprise and a real honour, even more so because it is based on nominations from my colleagues. My team has been really supportive throughout my training, encouraging me to get involved in many different initiatives. 

The ACA qualification has been challenging but also very rewarding. I am really proud to have almost made it through all of the exams”. 

Karen Thompson, head of Learning and Development, said: “The firm takes pride in the training and development of its people. We currently have over 100 people working towards professional qualifications across the firm and every year we recognise their achievements”. 

We are proud to continue to be one of few accredited ‘employer training providers’ within our sector, training and mentoring the next generation of accountants through our student apprenticeship intake each year.
