History filming: Retrospect

It’s not every day that one of the Hunter’s largest leading accounting firms celebrates 45 years since inception, making this milestone even greater for the team at PKF Sydney and Newcastle.

In celebration of our rich history, February marked the launch of our mini-series ‘Retrospect’, which offers a nostalgic look back at our evolution from a small 20-person firm to our esteemed position today as one of the top 10 accounting and advisory firms in Australia. 

This mini-series will feature 10 dynamic short videos that showcase PKF Sydney and Newcastle’s remarkable journey towards growth, history, support for the local community, and commitment to technological advancement. Viewers can expect an insightful exploration of their achievements, culture, values, and commitment to their clients. 

Additionally, four hero videos have been created that capture our 45 year history, as well as our commitment to culture, community, and adapting to technology. 

In 1977, the PKF Sydney and Newcastle legacy began when Terry Lawler founded Lawler Partners, a small yet ambitious accounting practice in the heart of Newcastle and today stands together with a team of over 300 employees, where they celebrate diversity, equality, and inclusion. Beyond Business, they remain committed to contributing to local communities, supporting a range of charities and organisations through sponsorships, donations, and volunteering. 

The ‘Retrospect’ series will be released periodically throughout 2024. Please join us on this nostalgic journey through our history, celebrating 45 years of growth, innovation, and excellence.
