ASX-listed financial planning dealer group Countplus launched an annual scholarship program for its senior leaders.
Recipients of the Barry Lambert Harvard Business School Scholarship will undertake the 'Leading professional service firms' executive program in the US.
Each year the Countplus board will select one recipient based on exemplary leadership skills and business acumen, and will cover the cost of tuition, accommodation and travel.
David Reeves, a principal of Brisbane-based financial planning and accounting firm Cooper Reeves will commence the program in January next year.
The course, which runs for about one week and is worth US$15,500, covers how executives can motivate talent, maintain high client satisfaction rates, and develop skills to drive long-term business strategies.
The scholarship honours Countplus founder and former chair Barry Lambert who retired in April.
Countplus chief executive Matthew Rowe said Reeves has been a consistent high performer and has built a wonderful culture at Cooper Reeves that is widely admired within Countplus and the broader community.
