Business consultant, better regulation guru and chartered accountant Teresa Graham OBE has been awarded the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales’s (ICAEW) 2007 Outstanding Achievement award. This is the first time in its 28-year history that the award has gone to the "fairer" sex.

This prestigious honour goes to Teresa Graham in recognition of her contribution to the small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) sector, to better regulation and to the accountancy profession.

In accepting her award, Teresa Graham said: “I am deeply honoured to have been presented with this award for outstanding achievement. It is particularly special to me as it is given by my peers within the accountancy profession, so many of whom l have known and admired for so long.”

Teresa Graham has been a consistent champion of the need to improve regulation for SMEs, particularly in the area of deregulation. She qualified as a chartered accountant with Price Waterhouse in 1980, having obtained a Batchelor of Arts degree from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. After moving to London, she became a partner in Baker Tilly in 1989 and now works as an independent consultant to the firm.

The ICAEW Award for Outstanding Achievement is made every year to a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales in recognition of an outstanding contribution in any field of endeavour. It was introduced in 1980 by the four Founding Societies who originally came together to form the Institute. The selection committee is made up of Founding Society representatives, captains of industry and other public figures.
