Melbourne-based top 50 firm Morrows has promoted Kellie Stark to the position of principal within the business and tax advisory division. 

It said Ms Stark, who began at Morrows in 2015, specialised in strategic planning and implementation services, corporate structuring, asset protection, performance improvement and managing reporting, and taxation consulting. 

Director Graeme Marks said Ms Stark had been vital to the success of the firm.


“Over the past eight years, Kellie has been instrumental in driving our tax and business advisory division,” he said.

“Kellie has an exceptional ability to listen to and understand clients' needs, which helps to positively transform businesses and supports them through growth and economic challenges.” 

He said Ms Stark had fostered robust internal and external relationships and had cultivated a wealth of experience to bring a unique perspective to her role.

As principal, she would support the firm’s strategic vision with dedication and commitment.

Morrows sits at number 48 in the latest Australian Financial Review Top 100 Accounting Firms, with revenue of $18.4 million in FY23.

Meanwhile, top 20 firm William Buck has welcomed Rashnyl Prasad to its Parramatta office as director of restructuring and insolvency.

The firm said Mr Prasad would help its restructuring and insolvency practice meet increasing demand as more companies entered external administration.

It said Mr Prasad had more than 13 years’ experience working with distressed companies and had been lured away from one of the big four consultants.

William Buck’s restructuring and insolvency director Sean Wengel Mr Prasad was an obvious fit for the firm thanks to his “deep knowledge of the middle-market and client-centric approach”.

“His background of helping clients to identify vulnerabilities and respond swiftly for favourable outcomes will enhance our ability to provide outstanding restructuring and insolvency services,” Mr Wengel said.

“[Fellow director] Michael Brereton and I are delighted to have Rashnyl on board to continue the growth trajectory of our restructuring and insolvency division and assist in developing our emerging leaders within the team.”

Mr Prasad holds a bachelor of commerce (accounting) from Macquarie University and is a member of both CA ANZ and the Australian Restructuring Insolvency and Turnaround Association.

His appointment takes the total number of NSW-based directors at William Buck to 46, within a strong local team of over 200 professionals. The firm has more than 135 directors and 1,000 staff across Australia and New Zealand.
