Hall Chadwick Queensland has announced that Clive Massingham and Mark Taylor will now take on the joint role of leading its audit division.
This follows the promotion of both Mr Massingham and Mr Taylor to equity partners in the business.
The appointments come as incumbent audit director Geoff Stephens looks to retire from 30 June 2020.
Mr Stephens, a partner at Hall Chadwick Queensland for the past 14 years, was also a member of the firm’s national audit committee and was instrumental in overseeing quality control training and best practice implementation across all the groups within the Hall Chadwick association.
“On behalf of the entire partnership team, we would like to express our gratitude for the years of service that Geoff has given to our business, and for the dedication he has made to successfully building and leading our audit division,” said Hall Chadwick Queensland director Rob Sendall.
“We would like to congratulate him on achieving this significant milestone and wish him all the best for the future.”
New audit directors Mr Massingham and Mr Taylor will also sit as members of the national audit committee, and will now be tasked with overseeing all audit training and development of good audit practice within the firm’s Brisbane office.
“I have been working alongside Geoff for nine years now and have had the privilege of learning from someone who carries a great depth of knowledge and experience in the practice,” Mr Massingham said.
“While the team will certainly miss Geoff, Mark and I are excited to take the reins and continue to deliver exceptional service to all of our clients.”
