The Murray Wyatt Award is designed to recognise a public practitioner, early in their career, residing in Australia or New Zealand, who displays Murray’s key characteristics of innovation, a progressive mindset and being an advocate for their public practice community.
The Award has been established in memory of Murray Wyatt FCPA, who passed away unexpectedly on 23 July 2021. Murray was a strong advocate for CPA Australia members and, more broadly, the accounting profession. He took an active role in mentoring the next generation of public practitioners, adopting a forward-looking mindset that readied him for the next opportunity or challenge being faced within the public practice community.
The 2024 Award will be presented at the Public Practice Retreat, with nominations opening later this year.
