Lifetime Achievement Award for Mike Brown

A ‘pillar of the North-east business community’ has been awarded the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award 2016’ at one of Aberdeen’s most prestigious annual business events.

Mike Brown, a Founding Partner of Aberdeen-based Chartered Accountancy firm Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), was presented with the accolade at the annual Elevator Awards which was held at the Mercure Ardoe House Hotel.

Attended by more than 400 people, the Elevator Awards commend business excellence, entrepreneurial behaviour and outstanding community contributions made by top businesses in Aberdeen City and Shire. Winners announced represent a wide range of up-and-coming companies, innovative organisations and firms from sectors including energy, technology, sport, leisure, food and drink, beauty and professional services.

Gold Paralympian and World Record Holder Richard Whitehead was the keynote speaker at the event, which sold out in record time and has been hailed as the most successful to date, with the number of applicants up 25% on last year.

Presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award, Steve Cook, Chairman of Elevator said that Mike Brown had demonstrated a devotion to his profession second to none and had given a lot to the business community in the North-east.

The driving force behind much of the growth and diversification within the ever-expanding AAB, he always puts his clients first and does the best for them. He has also been involved with the enterprise movement for many years, firstly with Aberdeen Enterprise Trust and then with the merged Enterprise North East Trust, now Elevator – an 18-year stint in this voluntary capacity always giving a very much valued and reasoned opinion.
