WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – A team of four took home first place in the KPMG Global Case Competition in Athens, Greece.

The event ran April 7-9. After winning a first-round test, the Wake Forest quarter prevailed over France, Sweden and German in the last test.

Ten other countries were represented in the finals.

The Wake students: senior Andrea Kensy of Upper Holland, Pa.; juniors Swayze Smartt of Dallas, Texas, and Zachary Zimbile of Allenwood, N.J.; and sophomore Louis Brotherton of Seattle, Wash.

Wake Forest won the U.S. finals in January to earn the right to make the Greece visit

"These students represented Wake Forest and themselves extremely well," said Yvonne Hinson, Wake Forest Schools of Business associate professor of accountancy who directs the undergraduate and graduate accountancy programs, in a statement. "We could not possibly be more proud of Andrea, Louis, Swayze, and Zachary. Their hard work has certainly paid off and we look forward to celebrating with them when they return."
