Professional body bestows top ranking

A newly-qualified accountant with big four firm PwC has topped the Isle of Man in a ranking by her professional body, the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales.

Amy Whitty has won the Order of Merit for her performance in the Institute's advanced stage exams, which recognises candidates who score the highest average marks to qualify as a chartered practitioner.
