Santora CPA Group, a Newark-based Certified Public Accounting and Consulting firm, is proud to announce that Brandon Heggan, CPA has won the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) prestigious 2019 Elijah Watt Sells Award. 
To qualify for the award, CPA candidates must obtain a cumulative average score above 95.50 across all four sections of the Uniform CPA Examination, pass all four sections on their first attempt, and have completed testing in 2019.
Brandon was among the nearly 75,000 individuals who sat for the CPA Exam in 2019 and one of the 133 candidates meeting the criteria to receive the Elijah Watt Sells Award.  What an outstanding accomplishment!
“On behalf of the AICPA, I’d like to commend the 2019 Sells Award winners for their impressive accomplishment,” said Mike Decker, the AICPA's vice president of examinations.  “The CPA Exam is a rigorous assessment and these candidates should be proud of their exceptional performance.”
The Elijah Watt Sells Award program was established by the AICPA in 1923 to recognize outstanding performance on the CPA Exam.  Sells, one of the first CPAs in the U.S., was active in the establishment of the AICPA and played a key role advancing professional education within the profession.
Brandon is a 2018 suma cum laude graduate of the University of Delaware with a B.S. in Accounting and Finance who joined Santora CPA Group in August 2018.
