Queensland is an important market for the Australian economy, so we are delighted to announce some senior appointments to increase our advisory capability.
We, as advisers know that we are operating in a changing commercial environment where there is tendency for businesses to retract and delay decisions in relation to future planning. That is something we have not subscribed to, boosting our team with very experienced and capable professionals to meet the needs of our clients and assist them to make well considered decisions in these challenging times.
Ashley Quinton and Glen Stapley
In September, we welcomed Glen Stapley as the new Practice Leader in Queensland. In early December, we have welcomed Ashley Quinton as Associate Director. Both Glen and Ashley bring a raft of practical skills to our presence in the areas of business growth, financial advisory and tax.
They join the team, working with Sri Narasimhan, an Associate Director who has been busy in our Corporate Assurance Division in Queensland since early in the year.
Queensland is a state full of opportunity, which we have recognised since we opened our Brisbane office years ago. Our local Brisbane team will now be led by these three senior staff, as well as those of us that you already know, boosting our presence as Queensland grows and changes.
We invite you to make contact with our Brisbane team and introduce yourself. They are keen to understand our clients better and will be making contact over coming months to ensure they get to clients you better.
