Global Achievement in Accountancy Award


Congratulations to CPA Ireland member Gail McEvoy who was awarded the Global Achievement in Accountancy Award at the Irish Accountancy Awards on Thursday evening.

Throughout her distinguished career, Gail McEvoy has been an exemplar in the accountancy profession.

For 25 years Gail’s firm, McEvoy Craig, has been a leader in accountancy in the North East region of Ireland. Providing excellent client services across accounting, taxation, audit, and business advisory, the firm has delivered these with a strategic mindset and a personalised service.

Her commitment to helping the accountancy profession deliver to its potential emerged when she first joined the Council of CPA Ireland in 2007. She served as the Institute’s President in 2011 and 2012.

Her commitment to accountancy extends beyond borders as she served on the board of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC). This placed Gail, for six years over two terms, in the leadership of the organisation that represents 3 million accountants across 130 countries. Gail was also a member of the Planning & Finance Committee of IFAC from 2016-2019.

Gail balanced her work and life commitments across a 6 year term on the Board of IFAC and brought the voice of Small to medium Practice, and of the SMEs that sector represents, to the global accounting stage.
