Bernard Agulhas and Thuto Masasa

Young Accountant of the Year is a South African

This year’s Young Accountant of the Year award went to South

African practitioner Thuto Masasa, a director at Nkonki Incorporated,

which is part of the Kreston International global network of

independent accounting firms. She received the accolade at the

2016 International Accounting Bulletin and The Accountant Awards

held recently in London. At the conference, IRBA CEO Bernard

Agulhas made a presentation on global trends in the regulation of

the accounting and audit profession. He also participated in a panel

discussion with BDO International and Grant Thornton.

Masasa is one of the leading practitioners advising local organisations

on the development of integrated reporting and is also actively

involved with the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC).

“It is an honour to have been recognised by the profession …

doing something that I truly believe in and believe will change the

landscape of the capital markets and society globally, if companies,

investors and other stakeholders at large embrace it,” she said upon

receiving the award.

“Integrated reporting is one of the three shifts we have heard the

world talk about lately, shifting from silo reporting together with

inclusive capitalism and long-term capital markets. Society is

looking for sustainability in order to have stability.”
