Class brings back former business development manager
Cloud-based wealth accounting firm Class has appointed David Goldsmith as its business development manager, returning to the role after he spent three years working for an SMSF auditor.
Class general manager of growth Jo Hurley said she was pleased to see Mr Goldsmith rejoin.
“I’m delighted to announce the return of David Goldsmith to the Class business — a respected industry professional with a depth of experience and expertise,” said Ms Hurley.
“Over the years David has built extensive relationships with top-tier accounting, auditing, SMSF administration and financial planning firms by helping these businesses to embrace and use technology to benefit client outcomes and drive efficiencies.”
“This year marks 10 years since David first started his journey with Class and found his passion for SMSFs, technology innovation and solutions that transform the way businesses do work, so we’re excited to welcome him back to the Class team.”
The firm said Mr Goldsmith brought with him in-depth experience from many roles throughout his career, which began in accounting and included working in England before making the switch to sales.
The appointment reflected a continued focus on supporting current customers and partners as well as building relationships and propositions for new customer segments, while also positioning the business for growth.
Mr Goldsmith rejoins Class from SMSF audit company Evolv Super Audits where he was head of sales.
He said he was thrilled to return to the firm and pick up where he left off.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Jo and the team doing what I love, which is supporting Class customers and partners with market-leading cloud-based SMSF technology solutions,” said Mr Goldsmith.
“Class delivers best-in-class innovation and automation for Australia’s top accounting firms and is focused on enhancing customer experiences and continuing to develop solutions that create even more value for its customers and partners.”
“I look forward to catching up with existing Class customers and partners as well as making new connections face to face when I attend the SMSF Association national conference this February.”
Class provides services such as trust accounting, portfolio management, legal documentation and corporate compliance to over 6,000 accounting and administration firms.
