From early April Andrew Dunbabin is moving to Tasmania. This represents a change of location rather than a change of role, with Andrew also remaining as a major shareholder of ProAdvice.’
Clinton Peake for a couple of years has been head of accounting across the firm and recently Lachlan Polkinghorne was appointed ProAdvice CEO. This completes the transition of all administrative and leadership roles within our business.
We talk a lot about succession with our clients in their businesses and families, and these changes demonstrate that we “practice what we preach.”
Andrew has lived in Victoria and worked with some of our clients for over 30 years and says he has loved his time on the mainland. He is building a new house and looks forward to assisting clients based in Tasmania, but also throughout Victoria and NSW as well as South Australia.
For many clients who have used mainly phone and email contact, along with visits to your place, nothing will change, but for those who have popped into Geelong from time to time, better coordination of diaries will be required!
Andrew will also be supporting Andrew Beattie and the accounting team in Launceston, to help cater for increasing demand from that location. Jane Chopping continues her role as ProAdvice Business Manager, and takes on the leadership of the marketing and business development areas.
Hamilton office, now with five staff, continues from strength to strength under Kerry Turnbull’s good leadership, and further growth is occurring all the time. Chris Scheid continues to be our South Australian link and services many clients on each side of the border, with accounting support from Geelong and Hamilton.
As ProAdvice continues to grow, our point of difference is our integrated approach to meeting client needs. Please contact us at any time if we can assist at all.
