CEO OF BEVERAGE GROUP Banks Holdings Limited (BHL), Richard Cozier, has been given the illustrious Certified General Accountants Fellowship (FCGA) Award for 2007.
He joins 28 other recipients from Canada, China and the Caribbean.
The FCGA award is presented to certified general accountants who have provided exemplary service to the association, the profession, or the public.
A CGA member since 1987, Cozier described the award as an honour.
"I was very surprised when I learnt that I had been nominated, and actually receiving this award was even more unexpected. It is a wonderful feeling to be recognised by your peers," he said.
The BHL CEO was nominated by fellow CGA members and the nomination submitted by CGA Barbados to CGA Canada for consideration.
The CGA's Honours and Awards Committee then met and presented its recommendations to the CGA board of directors which made the final decision.
Other Caribbean recipients include fellow Barbadians Marcel Murrell and Annette Weekes, Grenada's Majorie Lander, and Reuben John of St Vincent.
Cozier was presented with the FCGA award recently at the local CGA Association's graduation ceremony at Hilton Barbados.
