Promotions expand the footprint of two top 20 firms.

By Josh Needs3 minute read

Findex and RSM Australia have both commenced the 2022-23 financial year by appointing several additional partners. 


RSM Australia has promoted three, raising the firm’s total partnership to 132. Nick Webb, Rick Kimberley, and Rita Choueiri joined the firm’s partnership all with significant experience in the financial world.

Mr Webb joined RSM’s Brisbane office, bringing its numbers to eight, and will be a part of its financial services sector after a previous role with a boutique financial planning firm.

Appointed as the Australia global employer services leader Mr Kimberley will be based out of RSM’s Melbourne office. 

Ms Choueiri will join the R&D tax and government incentives team within tax services and will also be based in the Melbourne office bringing the number of partners there to 29.

RSM Australia national chairman Jamie O'Rourke said the firm was striving to expand its service and offerings to clients.

“We have invested significantly in our company growth strategy, and the development of our human capital, over the past decade,” said Mr O'Rourke.

“Despite the tough labour market, we’ve expanded our total staff pool by more than 300, including a large contingent of graduates, since the start of the pandemic and now have about 1,550 staff nationwide, with a view to increasing this to 1,750 by 2024.”

Findex has appointed 46 partners and associate partners in Australia and 11 in New Zealand.

This is an increase of almost 50 per cent on the previous year with approximately half of the appointments based in regional locations.

The appointed partners will be based across the firm’s many sectors including, wealth management, business advisory, tax advisory, risk insurance, audit and consulting.

Findex chief growth officer Chris Carey said that the additional appointments reflected its achievements and desire to best serve its clients both metropolitan and regional.

“A large part of our success can be attributed to fostering career progression and providing opportunity to our talented cohort of emerging leaders across a range of disciplines, no matter where they reside,” said Mr Carey.

“The Findex partnership team across Australia is one that we are extremely proud of as we move into the new financial year.

“These new appointments enhance our ability to service both regional and metropolitan areas with local, on the ground expertise and reflect the strong growth trajectory the business is on.”

Findex currently employs 2,700 staff across Australia and New Zealand, servicing a client base of over 250,000.
