PKF Brisbane has appointed Tim Follett as a partner in its audit and assurance division.
Mr Follett started at PKF as a graduate and has been with the firm for nearly 15 years.
He is the office’s fourth audit partner and brings the total PKF Brisbane partner count up to eight.
Mr Follett said he has had an “incredible” career with PKF and that his appointment sends a positive message that the firm is focused on growth and retention.
“Partnership at a firm such as PKF is a worthy goal for someone who enjoys building relationships and applying a deep skill set across a wide range of industries,” Mr Follett said.
PKF Brisbane managing partner Liam Murphy welcomed the appointment and said PKF was maturing as a firm.
“Our values are reflected in our staff retention and ability to promote from within,” Mr Murphy said.
“Tim embodies these values and we are delighted to be able to offer Tim this opportunity.
“He has demonstrated a high capacity in leadership, client service, business development and general commercial skills winning our respect and the respect of his clients.”
Mr Murphy said PKF Brisbane will continue to focus on a growth strategy combining organic growth with merger opportunities which fit the firm’s market profile.
“Our audit practice is a significant player in the Brisbane market, with over 20 listed company clients and a range of large private companies and not-for-profits in the client base,” he said.
“We continue to see a high level of organic growth across the practice, but we are actively targeting business services firms to join this growth.”
The firm has also seen growth nationally with the appointments of three partners in the Sydney and Newcastle offices in February.
