I’m very pleased to have joined ATS Partners in May 2016, as Manager –Business and Taxation Services. My aim is to provide outstanding service and advice to our clients on their business and taxation needs.
This might include advising on matters such as:
- Preparing quarterly management reporting and analysis;
- Setting key performance indicators to benchmark your business performance;
- Assisting in matching technology needs with your business;
- Advice on setting budgets or managing your cash flow; and
- Fulfilling your GST and tax compliance obligations.

My wife and I have two girls (currently under 3). She’s an Albury-Wodonga local, and about 18 months ago we moved here from Melbourne. I grew up in the country also, in Young, a small town in country NSW. We love Albury-Wodonga for its beautiful environment, being big enough for quality services, great local wine, food, health and other industries, and being closer to our families as we now raise ours.
My family ran a small building company and I enjoyed working on the tools in my holidays and weekends. I studied Commerce at the ANU in Canberra, and worked there also and at University campuses in London for a number of years. I returned to live in Melbourne and over a 12 year period worked in financial and management reporting roles in global and ASX listed businesses, in sectors including financial services and other industrials. Prior to joining ATS I spent 15 months working as finance lead for a winery & restaurant in Rutherglen.
Outside the office I try to live an active life and enjoy running, golf, and playing with the kids as much as I can. It’s fair to say I enjoy watching any sports – but mostly test cricket and AFL, and American football too.
I enjoy being at the coast, and whenever I get the opportunity enjoy scuba diving and fishing or just swimming in the surf. I have loved travelling and the exposures to different and delicious international foods in particular. My wife and I also love dining out and trying local wines and produce whenever we can.
I look forward to working with the large and friendly team at ATS Partners, learning more about our business, and working with our clients to meet their needs.
