Joining the firm’s director team is Colin Samuel as director of business services and taxation, and Werner Combrinck as associate director leading the firm’s virtual CFO and bookkeeping functions.

Speaking about the additions to Prosperity’s talent line-up, chief executive and founder Allan McKeown said that Prosperity has stepped up to the plate with a strong focus on helping their clients navigate a challenging COVID-19 period. 

“We have implemented a robust strategy to not only support our clients and team members, but to also confidently continue to grow our advisory offering. Colin and Werner are tremendous additions to the already strong team at our firm,” he said.

Mr Samuel has been a partner at leading mid-tier accounting firm ESV for the past seven years and provides holistic solutions to entrepreneurial and family-owned businesses. 

An accredited Family Business Adviser, he has extensive experience in food and hospitality as well as other industries and specialises in advising high-net-worth family groups as they move through their lifecycle.

Mr Combrinck previously worked with Xero for five years including in a role as Xero NSW state manager, with experience in solving business issues through more efficient software solutions and smarter business strategies. 

Prior to this, he was a business advisory services manager at Crowe Horwath New Zealand.
