My personal mission for King & Whittle as CEO
"To inspire others through passion and enthusiasm. To assist others in achieving great things and realise their potential and be in a better place for having interacted with our firm. To do this by example in my leadership."
I began my career over 35 years ago, in the accounting industry on scholarship as a cadet with Deloitte and have been fortunate to work in highly professional CA offices, as well as large international commerce businesses and volunteered in many community organisations.
I have led many Executive Corporate Leadership and Mentoring programs, tendering groups and Executive Performance teams. As an Executive Coach, I invoked change and was charged with achieving specific objectives and outcomes in often diverse and challenging environments, both locally and overseas.
Appointed in April 2022 as King & Whittle CEO, a chartered accounting firm established in 1926, I am humbled and proud to be part of a firm made up of a majority female leadership team and to be a custodian of a firm of nearly 100 years. I understand the amazing opportunity to pursue the inherited purpose from past generations. It is my responsibility to some day pass it along in better shape to future generations.
At King & Whittle, we pride ourselves on prioritising our people and being client focused. People are respected and valued for who they are and are trusted to add value to their clients and communities. Our culture of respecting diversity and treating people equally are integral parts of what a good work culture means at King & Whittle. As a company, we recognise and affirm differences in age, ethnicity, family status, gender, race, education, physical abilities or qualities, religion, sexual orientation, thought processes, personalities and lifestyles and any other characteristic that make a person a unique individual.
In our approach to values and behaviours within our team, we consider: Collaboration, Inclusiveness, Creativity, Innovation and working as “One Team” with the imagination for discovery and continuous learning, as integral to who we are at King & Whittle.
I look forward to the exciting future.
Together with our values and purpose and the amazing talent of our people, we are indeed “passionate and enthusiastic” in helping our clients reach their full potential. Our recent firms growth, despite changes, challenges and of course 2 years of pandemic - convinces us that we are on the right path.
