Nigel started his accounting career in 2000 in local accounting firms around Ballarat.
Prior to this Nigel had management roles with Woolworths and a major role with Coca Cola vending in outer suburban and regional areas. This gave him experience across a broad field of areas, including preparation of financial and management accounts, compliance and budgets. By far one of his greatest assets is his diverse experience. Nigel recognises how effective businesses operate and can advise on all areas whether it be accounting, taxation, start-ups, structuring, business review, acquisitions or sales. His interpersonal relationships are what he thrives on, especially building business & long term relationships with clients.
