Louise Hooper has passed the final examination of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales and is now a fully qualified chartered accountant.
Louise, a former student of the Tollbar Academy (formerly Tollbar Business and Enterprise College) and Franklin College, joined Forrester Boyd as a trainee and during her training, has worked on a variety of client portfolios including sole trader and partnership accounts, and preparing accounts for small limited companies across all sectors. Louise has worked for the firm for 5 years and is based at the Grimsby office and is a valued member of the team.
Before beginning her AAT qualification she won a Kaplan Scholarship and in April this year was awarded runner up ‘Student Accountant of the Year’ at the Humberside & District Society of Chartered Accountants awards ceremony. Louise is also a keen netball player and plays as part of the Forrester Boyd team each week in the Grimsby league.
Forrester Boyd’s HR Coordinator, Chantelle Ellis, said "The professional accountancy qualifications are extremely tough and working whilst studying is not easy. Louise’s fantastic results prove that hard work and determination really do pay off."
"We pride ourselves on producing top quality accountants for this complex business environment and Louise is a tribute to that."
Kevin Hopper, Forrester Boyd’s partner responsible for training, said "Louise has done extremely well and this is another example of the success of our strategy in recruiting and developing home grown talent. This, combined with the excellent accounting tuition provided by Kaplan Financial, allows Forrester Boyd to continue to provide top quality accounting staff".
Forrester Boyd is one of the leading independent chartered accountancy practices in Lincolnshire and the Humber region, with 12 Partners and 250 staff based at offices at Grimsby, Louth, Scunthorpe, Skegness and Beverley.
