Privately-owned advisory and accounting group Findex has expanded its leadership team through the addition of 34 partners and associate partners across its Australian and New Zealand firms.

Findex revealed it has maintained an equal gender split across all its appointments and said it reflects a commitment to its regional firms and clients by having 63 per cent of its Australian appointments in offices outside metropolitan areas. 

Findex’s co-CEO Matthew Games said the business’s regional appointments are a part of its growth in those areas. 

“As a major employer across Australia and New Zealand, we’re excited to see continued growth in our regional areas across the key sectors within the business,” said Mr Games. 

“It highlights the continued investment into emerging leaders that we’re making in these areas that make up the backbone of both nations.” 

“Pleasingly we also announce an even split of female and male partners, reinforcing our commitment to our gender equity plan.”

One of the promoted associate partners in Findex’s Albury office, Tom Rowan, said the promotions across the organisation’s regional firms reflects the commitment country offices have to their communities. 

“With Findex’s extensive regional footprint, the appointment of several from our team to the position of associate partner in the Albury office is testament to the team’s commitment to our community,” said Mr Rowan. 

“We’re proud of what we do – partnering alongside locals and their businesses, to help them in every stage of their financial journey.” 

Alexandra Paul, a recently promoted associate partner in one of Findex’s New Zealand offices, said the company’s support for the local firms is crucial to its success.
