Technical Director

MRL Group is an enterprising and innovative chartered accounting practice in Adelaide. After a diverse experience during my early years in the profession, I joined the firm in September 2005, becoming Director and Partner in 2006.

Since then the client base has grown strategically with two main emphases:

  • Closely held (private) businesses and structures.
  • Not-for-Profit and Special Purpose organisations.

MRL Group has two Directors including myself and business partner Mr Mark LeCornu. The firm now has ten staff.

My principal role in the firm is one of leadership, general management, Information Technology vision, management and support, and education.

Services to clients are diverse and are suited to my unique skill set including complex taxation, financial reporting, audit and management accounting solutions, investment portfolios, wealth accounting services and technology. This is demonstrated through a niche role in the areas of capital gains tax and self-managed superannuation, and specialised technical needs.
