We would like to congratulate one of our long-term clients, Andrew Coad, for being awarded with a Medal (OAM) of the Order of Australia. Andrew has been a loyal client of Abbotts Chartered Accountants since 1981 and was recently awarded the medal in recognition of his devoted commitment to volunteering at numerous committees and organisations since the age of 20.
Andrew was born in the small farming town of Lake Grace, Western Australia in 1941. His father was a pioneer farmer and Andrew worked full-time on the property from 1957. Under his management the farm grew to a substantial size. Andrew was providing an outstanding commitment and contribution to the Lake Grace district in a wide variety of roles over many years, more recently since returning to the Como district, and it is this selfless dedication to give back to the community that prompted his latest recognition.
Abbotts are extremely proud and privileged to be associated with clients like Andrew, who is well deserving of this honour.
Congratulations to the rest of the Western Australians recognised in the Australia Day 2020 Honours List for exceptional service or achievement in our community. You can visit the Government House Western Australia website to see all recipients.
