Carbon Group expands in South Australia


The national accounting network will open a new office in North Adelaide, its second office in South Australia, as part of a move to bolster its presence in the state.

The Carbon Group on Monday announced the opening of a new office in North Adelaide, its second in South Australia after it merged with South Australian accounting firm Holiatt Daant in 2019, which became Carbon Barossa.  

The network has tasked David Block with leading the new office after he was appointed accounting and tax partner. 

Carbon Group co-founder Nathan Hood said bolstering the network’s service offering in South Australia is core to Carbon Group’s growth strategy, and the opening of its North Adelaide office is another step. 


“South Australia presents a number of exciting opportunities for Carbon Group, and by now having two offices, we are able to reach a wider range of business owners in the state,” Mr Hood said.

Mr Hood welcomed Mr Block’s appointment, and said that it echoes the network’s commitment to fostering and supporting young talent, because the new role will be a “step up”. 

“David shares our passion for helping business owners achieve success, so not only is he a great addition to Carbon Group, he is also going to have an incredibly positive impact on his clients’ businesses,” Mr Hood said. 

“We’re very excited to be a part of his journey, and to be able to provide him support to grow.”

Mr Block joins the Carbon Group from Hood Sweeney, where he worked for seven years, most recently as an associate. He said the Carbon Group’s approach to innovation was something he looks forward to being a part of. 

“I was eager to join a like-minded team who shares my passion for relentless business improvement and value creation for clients,” Mr Block said.

“The team at Carbon Group are constantly looking for new and different ways of doing things, and that’s a journey I’m excited to be a part of.”

Carbon Group’s South Australian expansion comes just over a month after the network partnered with Perth-based accounting and business services firm Haydon Kinnaird. 

The network has been on an aggressive growth streak since it launched in 2014, and has committed the last three years to establishing “hubs” in states across the country, after locking in more than 13 mergers and acquisitions in its first four years.
