I specialise in corporate advisory, strategically guiding clients as they navigate through complex financial matters.
I hold a number of board positions and permanent advisory roles within many organisations, whereI provide advice throughout negotiation processes, mergers and acquisitions, share and asset restructuring, other transaction matters and general business advice.
I have held many honorary positions on community organisations including Rotary, the Rugby Club and the Veteran Car Club of Australia.
After 24 successful years as a chartered accountant, I founded Spencer Steer in 1996 which merged with Hill Rogers in 2010. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (FCA) as well as being a Chartered Tax Advisor with The Tax Institute and a Registered Company Auditor.
I hold significant expertise in the management of large corporate groups and over three decades I've gained considerable expertise in taxation planning, transaction structuring and group restructures. I provide support and advice for large corporate groups and virtual CFO services to smaller clients.
I've been with Hill Rogers since 1991 and have over 35 years’ experience as a Chartered Accountant. I hold undergraduate degrees in Accounting and in Commerce (Business Administration) and I'm a Fellow of the Instituted Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (FCA), as well as being a Registered Tax Agent and a Registered Company Auditor.
I joined Hill Rogers in 1987 when my own practice merged with the firm. My background includes substantial experience in audit, which gave me first-hand experience of the internal workings of many different companies in many different industry sectors. I now put that expertise to work advising businesses on strategic issues, including strategic planning; business planning; management consulting; mergers, acquisitions and sales; structuring and restructuring. I'm a permanent advisor to many clients’ advisory committees, and enjoy giving the practical, down-to-earth advice that clients need to hear in order to have the best chance of success.
My passion for helping organisations to succeed extends to a raft of positions with not-for-profit and community welfare organisations, particularly a number of independent schools which I advise on financial management and planning.
I formally joined Hill Rogers in 2007 after a 3 month secondment from Sept to Dec 2006. I graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Accountancy and completed my CPA in the Philippines. While in the Philippines, I have worked extensively in commercial audits for 10 years. Upon joining Hill Rogers in June 2007, I started with the Audit Division for 2 years, transitioned to the Business Solutions Division, and now currently one of the Portfolio Managers in the team. I specialise in compliance and advisory services in corporate entities involving tax consolidations, international dealings, management accounts reporting, deferred tax accounting.
After graduating from UWA, I started my accountancy career in 2006 and became a Chartered Accountant in 2009. I am also a Chartered Tax Adviser. After 9 years at a top international mid-tier accounting firm, I moved to Sydney and joined Hill Rogers as a Tax Manager in 2016. I specialise in corporate tax compliance and advisory, international taxation, corporate structuring, tax consolidations, and mergers/acquisition transactions. My taxation compliance and advisory experience has helped many Australian and international businesses operating across a broad range of industries.
