Andrew’s philosophy when working with his clients is all about partnership. Whatever the situation, Andrew’s focus is on working together to move beyond basic compliance requirements and pursuing a better financial future for them.
While he concedes it is a task made all the more difficult by the constantly changing business and financial landscape, he believes that with clear direction, hard-work and good advice, anything is possible.
For much of his career as a Chartered Accountant, Andrew has specialised in tax planning advice and wealth creation strategies for general practitioners, specialists and other health sector professionals. His keen interest in the sector was sparked by his family background in medicine and a key role he played in introducing salary sacrifice arrangements to wage negotiations with the South Australian Salaried Medical Officers Association (SASMOA) early in his career.
Andrew has held tax and business advisory roles in both mid-tier and Big 4 accounting firms. He regularly addresses members of medical bodies on topics such as taxation structures and planning and his extensive technical knowledge is widely respected in the industry.
Andrew derives the most satisfaction from sharing the journey with his clients and helping them save tax, build wealth and achieve their financial goals.

Andrew as an individual
If you weren’t an accountant what would you like to be: Although I’m not a Kiwi, I grew up wanting to be a sheep farmer so if I wasn’t an accountant that’s what I’d be.
Outside of work: I follow most sport including cricket and football and love to go bushwalking with my family and friends (when the snakes aren’t out of course!). With three children 16 years apart there is always something happening at home to keep me busy.
