2013 - Kennerlys named Best Accounting Firm at BRW 2013 Client Choice Awards

(Revenue less than $50 million). THE BRW Client Choice Awards showcase the top professional service firms and set the bar for excellence. The awards are judged by clients, not a panel of judges and are based on the 2013 Annual Business and Professions Study (ABPS). The 2013 ABPS, which uses the most rigorous analytics available, was conducted independently by Beaton Research + Consulting. It is the largest study of clients of professional services in the world and more than 40,000 individual responses were received.

2012 —Kennerlys was announced as a finalist for the ‘MYOB Small Business Award’ Category in the 2012 Telstra Australian Business Awards.

Managing Director Lejo Ouwendyk said, “It’s great to see the hard work and recent successes at Kennerlys being recognised within the business community. Our team has always been focused on getting the highest levels of customer satisfaction as their priority, and this nomination reflects that.”

2012 – Kennerlys Managing Director, Lejo Ouwendyk, was named by CPA Australia’s INTHEBLACK magazine in its inaugural 40 Young Business Leaders list. The 40 business men and women who made the list are all under 40 years of age and described by INTHEBLACK, as “the future changers,” and “... high-energy young professionals on the fast track to the top.”

Mr. Ouwendyk’s business success includes increasing the turnover of the well-respected Kennerlys firm by over 200 percent, with similar staff numbers, since taking the helm in 2006. Additionally, he developed and introduced Enterprise Development Services — a competitive differentiator — to provide clients with strategy, advice and financial tools to maximise the full potential of their business.
