Head of Accounting

What I love about being on the CHANGE Team...

The dynamic culture and continual search for improvement is exhilarating. With accountants, financial planners & business development managers all working together all staff members get exposure to a number of different client issues. Overcoming these issues allows for everybody to grow and develop to become better advisors.

In my view, what's different about CHANGE compared with other firms is...

Change Accountants have embraced the technological advancements that have swept the world in the last 10 years. This is great for clients as we now have better capability to step away from our desks and provide clients with an improved service, whilst ensuring that the basics are completed to a very high standard. 

On a personal note, the technology embraced also allows for a more flexible work/life balance. This is great for those with young families.

What I love about my role is...

In the words of Kerry Packer:

“If anybody in this country doesn't minimise their tax they want their head read. As a government I can tell you you're not spending it that well that we should be paying extra.”

Ensuring that my clients follow Packer’s lead is the best part of my job. It often requires forward planning but when achieved is very rewarding.I also enjoy mentoring the less experienced accountants in the office and watching as they develop into high quality advisors.

Outside of office hours...

Living on the Sunshine Coast I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family. When I do finally get some time alone, I enjoy riding my motorcycle around the Sunshine Coast Hinterland region.

Something most people don't know about me is...

Coming from Albury, I am a staunch NSW supporter. It has been a long 10 years!
