French Duncan Corporate Finance Executive wins ICAS 160th award
09 March 2015
25 year old Marc Vosilius from Uddingston has won the award for his overall performance throughout three years of ICAS exams, having passed his final TPE exam with distinction – and already winning a prize for gaining the highest mark for that sitting.
“I’m delighted to win this award, having always wanted to be an accountant,” said Vosilius.
“I’ve studied accountancy since I was 13 or 14, taking the subject straight through from standard grade to higher and onto university at Strathclyde before proceeding to work for a mid-tier practice where I worked my way up to audit supervisor.”
Following his qualification with ICAS as a chartered accountant last September, Vosilius joined French Duncan and switched his specialism from audit to corporate advisory.
“I was attracted to French Duncan as a firm as it has a fast growing profile in the Scottish business community and has a real sense of entrepreneurship amongst its staff. The Corporate Advisory team is one of the best in Scotland and is involved in a wide range of assignments. Since starting, I have got involved in due diligence, business plans, fundraising and transaction such as an MBO and business sales. I’m thoroughly enjoying it!” he said.
Congratulating Vosilius on his award, French Duncan Managing Partner, Graeme Finnie, said: “Marc is a hard-working, driven individual and fully deserves this recognition for his exceptional ability. He may only have joined our firm a few months ago, but already he is proving himself to be a valuable addition to our corporate advisory team.”
Vosilius will receive his award at a special ICAS prize-giving ceremony in Edinburgh on 28th March.
French Duncan is one of the largest mid-tier accountancy practices in Scotland with 20 partners, a fee income of £10 million, nearly 200 employees and a network of five offices spanning Scotland’s Central Belt.
