Tony Fittler, chairman of the HLB Mann Judd Australasian Association, said the appointments reflect the consistently steady growth achieved by the group over the past 12 months.
“We have seen continual growth nationally, focused particularly in our Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane offices, in the areas of audit and assurance, corporate advisory, and personal wealth management,” Mr Fittler said.
“The five new partners and directors will join the approximately 90 partners and around 600 staff members in the HLB Mann Judd Australasian Association, in providing business advice and services to a wide range of business organisations and private clients.”
All three partner appointments have been made in the audit and assurance area, traditionally a strong division of the firm.
Mark Holloway has been appointed partner in Melbourne, Danny Buckley in Perth and Adrian Narayanan in Brisbane.
Mr Holloway joined HLB Mann Judd in 2007 and has over 17 years’ experience in internal, performance and financial audits.
Mr Buckley joined the firm in 2003 as a graduate and has particular experience in the resources and building and construction industries.
Mr Narayanan joined HLB Mann Judd Brisbane in 2008 and has 20 years’ experience.
The firm has also appointed two directors in Sydney – Nicholas Guest in the corporate advisory division and Chris Hogan in the personal wealth management area.
