Having worked in professional practice for over 30 years, Greg is a trusted advisor to business and a well-regarded authority on private business issues, regularly commentating in national and local press on how to increase business value.

Being voted in by his fellow partners so quickly speaks to his calibre and professional standing. Greg’s leadership role will further enhance the firm’s strategic priority to build a larger presence in the Sydney market and I look forward to working closely with him.”

Greg fills the vacancy created by Steven Allan, Business & Private Client Advisory Director, who steps down from the Executive Board after 5 years’ service.

“I would like to thank Steve for the significant role that he has played on the Board and Executive Committee over a number of years.

Mr Greg Will stated: “”I am really excited and honoured to be voted onto the board by my fellow Partners and to have a hands-on role in upholding the governance of the firm. The firm is in a strong growth phase, and I am looking forward to working with my fellow board members to maintain this momentum.”

I would like to express my gratitude to each member for their collaboration and support. Reflecting on my service, I am proud of the progress we’ve made together. The commitment to excellence, emphasis on teamwork, and the prioritisation of our goals have been instrumental in our achievements. I remain confident in the firm’s continued success and growth and extend my best wishes to the incoming leadership and the entire team.”
