Chicago, IL – Moore Stephens North America (MSNA) announced the winners of the second annual MSNA Awards program on Friday, acknowledging significant contributions to the advancement of the organization. The winners were announced at the MSNA Spring Conference, held at the Sofitel hotel in Chicago.

The 2019 Collaboration Award was presented to the team at Beene Garter.

“Over the years, Beene Garter has been a firm that consistently collaborates in areas we are both working in, as well as areas each other may be exploring,” said Tony Caleca, Brown Smith Wallace Managing Partner.

Caleca shares their regular collaborations in audit and tax, as well as the opportunities Beene Garter has made possible through the sharing of new software and processes. With a “what can we do to help” approach, their eagerness to collaborate has led to great referrals and additional business on both ends.

The 2019 Improvement Award was presented to the team at DMCL. DMCL has experienced more than 40% growth in the past three years, and they are determined to continue serving the community as the largest independently-owned accounting firm in the Lower Mainland.

The 2019 Innovation Award was presented to the team at DiCicco, Gulman & Company (DGC). Through their weekly comedy program, “The Breather,” DGC has introduced a form of stress release through these four-minute videos, while also helping their growing firm get to know their coworkers a little better. With a huge impact on company morale, these videos prove the different ways that innovation can help move firms forward.

“While our members have seen substantial growth and success across the board, we feel it’s important to highlight those firms and individuals who have gone above and beyond,” said MSNA CEO Tony Szczepaniak. “We are proud to acknowledge their accomplishments and give them the accolades they deserve.”

Employees from member firms nominated individuals, teams or firms for any of the three awards: Most Collaborative, Most Innovative, Most Improved. Entries were reviewed, and winners selected by the MSNA Executive Office.
