“Focusing on the growth of our team has been the number one priority this year and we are glad to see top talent making the return to the firm.” 

Commenting on her return to the firm, Ms Dawes said: “It is very exciting that I get to be a part of the PKF team again. Having not only a local, but global network of knowledge, and a team that values collaboration, is something that every professional looks for, in helping to grow their career.

The appointment of Ms Dawes coincides with Troy McIntyre joining the team, an adviser who brings over 10 years’ experience to the firm.

Mr McIntyre will be making the shift from the Australian Tax Office (ATO), bringing along an extensive profile of commercial experience and unique insight.

“Having inside knowledge from the ATO, is extremely valuable for our firm, Mr Shone added.

This expansion of our tax team is evident of our constant dedication to providing only the best service to our clients.
