“I help my clients by understanding. It’s about going the extra mile, adding more value and supporting them to achieve their goals”
Director, Business Advisory
David’s passion for sailing and ocean racing has seen him participate in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race 13 times. It is the same skills required to navigate stormy seas which he believes are crucial in guiding and supporting his clients every day.
Aside from pursuing this passion, David specialises in providing accounting, taxation, and business advice to Small-Medium Enterprises.
Having founded a start-up accounting practice, David appreciates business issues facing his clients. “I understand that business owners can feel isolated, this understanding means I can help work through their business issues. I act as an external CFO, by coming up with individualised and practical solutions.”
With over 30 years’ experience, David uses his in-depth knowledge to provide clients with quality, up-to-date, common sense advice and services. “It’s important to reduce the stress of compliance and administration for clients and focus on giving them the tools and information necessary to run their businesses more effectively.”
Commencing his career as an auditor before transitioning into business advisory, David has considerable experience in providing valuable management in business advisory services and understanding the accounting and reporting requirements of international businesses. In particular, David specialises in valuing veterinary practices, having consulted and valued more than 700 practices over the past 20 years.
David believes the key to assisting clients is to understanding what the client wants as well as what they need.
