Allison Peart, FCA, FCPA, BSc, chairman of the taxation committee, Institute of Chartered Accountants of Jamaica (ICAJ), was named Most Outstanding Chairperson of the Year at the institute’s annual general meeting last week at the Knutsford Court Hotel in Kingston.
Peart is the country managing partner and tax partner at Ernst & Young (Jamaica).
“I am delighted to recognise Allison as the 2018 ICAJ Most Outstanding Chairperson and thank her for her contributions, on behalf of Council and the entire membership.
“Allison’s stellar achievements, contributions and service to the community have earned her distinction and brought honour to the institute and the accountancy profession,” said Raymond Campbell, president, ICAJ, via news release.
A fellow of ICAJ, Peart has served on Council since 2013 and is a member of the Institute’s Future of the Profession Committee.
In 2017, she served as chairman of the highly successful Business Conference Planning Committee.
Through her tireless efforts, a historic memorandum of understanding was signed between ICAJ and the TAJ last November to enable the implementation of changes in tax legislation and the annual filing of tax returns towards greater efficiency for the taxpayer and the TAJ.
