Developing and leading internal audit and risk management functions in industry makes Chrstine an advisor of choice as she draws on her industry experience to provide value that clients can relate to.”

Mr Rogers says, “Together with the appointment of Vanessa Priest and Kirsty McDonnell last month in Sydney, and Trent Godden-Minette in Melbourne in January this year, we are excited to bring four new partners on board that all have specific talents and a desire to drive growth in their respective markets. Pleasingly, and with a lot of hard work from our people and the support of our clients, we are on track to deliver on our four-year strategic plan.
