Tony commenced his career working in Business Services as an under-graduate at a regional Chartered Accounting firm with responsibility for a portfolio of individual and small business clients. Tony showed panache for special assignments including records analysis and reconstruction, and formal ATO objections. This experience provided Tony with a good grounding in public practice and for what was to develop later.
In 1985 Tony completed a degree in Business and commenced a three year assignment in the building industry. This saw him with responsibility for all aspects of accounting and finance for a niche construction company in Port Melbourne undertaking major industrial re-development projects. Returning to public practice, Tony gained exposure in various practice areas and developed a special interest in Audit and Assurance. In 2001 he became a Partner.
