“I like to build up trust and friendship. It’s important for clients to know that accountants speak the same language as them and are there to help.”

Samantha Nicholls

Principal, Corporate Advisory

Having competed at an elite level in netball, it’s not surprising that Samantha is a determined and driven individual who strives to achieve outstanding results for her clients. She has a friendly, ‘can do’ nature which enables her to develop strong relationships with her clients and colleagues. 

Samantha is a strong believer in life balance, and having faced many challenges in her 30 years she lives by the philosophy that you should live for today and cherish the people and moments you experience along the way.

One of Samantha’s defining career achievements was taking out William Buck’s 2013 Employee of the Year Award, which recognises the outstanding service she provides clients and the important role she plays within the team.

Beginning her career with William Buck as a graduate in 2007, Samantha has quickly progressed through the firm and was promoted to a Manager in the Corporate Advisory Division in July 2013 and Principal in July 2018. She specialises in providing corporate business advice and liaising with clients on a regular basis.

Samantha thrives on daily interaction with her clients, particularly those she has built relationships with over many years and helped their businesses grow.
