Mark is an experienced, insightful and commercially aware management accountant with over 15 years experience in managing private client group taxation compliance and business operational performance aspects. Not just focusing on numbers, he also considers the non-financial aspects of a growing business, including the personal goals of directors and shareholders, HR management and work-life balances.
Friendly and approachable, Mark enjoys building long-term working relationships with his clients. He has developed a strong understanding of the industries in which his clients operate, including hospitality, manufacturing, media, wholesale distribution warehousing, equipment rental, professional service providers and celebrity and media personalities.
Mark particularly enjoys working with small to medium sized family operated business where he can translate complex financial terminology into plain English for the owners while applying 'outside the box' thinking for operational matters. His ability to engage his clients' business stakeholders means that he is equally at home liaising with their board of directors, financiers, and insurance brokers.
In addition to his people skills, Mark has relevant expertise in budgeting and forecasting, management reporting, superannuation, statutory compliance requirements, due diligence, and on-going bookkeeper and staff training for client self sufficiency and cost management. Mark is analytical with strong systems skills, specialising in structuring, standardising and streamlining financial reporting processes to provide more accurate and productive systems that enhance data visibility and facilitate better business decisions.
Mark originally joined Champions in 2006 as a senior accountant, having had five years experience in business services while successfully completing the Chartered Accountants program in 2009. In 2015, his contribution to the firm was recognised when he was appointed as an Owner Director.
In his spare time, Mark enjoys "weighing up the odds" playing competitive Texas Hold'em Poker tournaments with his ambition to follow in the footsteps of Australia's Joe Hacham and win a ticket to Vegas for the World Series of Poker.
