TCL manager made senior fellow by ACCA
Parasram Heerah, finance manager at Trinidad Cement Ltd (TCL), has been recognised as a senior fellow by the Association of Certified Accountants (ACCA) Caribbean. The accolade was bestowed on him at a gala FCCA recognition ceremony at the Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre, at which members with more than 25 years of service as fellows to the accounting profession in T&T were recognised.
Heerah has built a solid career centred on staying at the cutting edge of professional accounting. He is a longstanding member of the ACCA; a founding member of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIATT) and a former council member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of T&T (ICATT). Prior to joining TCL as an internal auditor in 1984, Heerah worked for leading accounting firms—Ernst & Young and PriceWaterhouseCoopers.
In 1995, he was promoted to finance manager of TCL, and continues to perform exceptionally in this key position. During his tenure at TCL, Heerah has played an instrumental role in overseeing the financial due diligence of Arawak Cement Company Ltd (1994, Barbados) and the Caribbean Cement Company Ltd (1999, Jamaica), both of which are subsidiaries of the TCL Group.
His impressive career is pillared by praiseworthy academic achievements. He attained his Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) in 1995 from the Institute of Business, which is now known as the Arthur Lok Jack School of Business. In the true fashion of one committed to continuous learning and development, Heerah went on to earn his certified public accountant (CPA) designation from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) in 2006.
Under his guidance, TCL and ACCA have fostered a solid relationship: one which has enabled TCL to be officially designated as an approved employer by the ACCA in 2006. Speaking on being awarded the Fellowship designation, a self-effacing Heerah stated that he is both “proud and humbled.” He acknowledges that his successes are due to support from his parents, wife Sharda and children, Sachin and Pavesh.
