Having honed his craft at EY, Paul developed a passion for working with clients to help them grow their businesses.
Paul's vision of assisting clients achieve their dreams was shared with Dean Pike, and in 1992 they established Pike & Skinner Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers. Their focus was to ensure that they used all of their knowledge to make the greatest contribution they could to help their clients achieve their dreams and also meet their challenges. In seeking to expand the scope of their advice, and develop a “one stop shop” for their clients, they established PS Financial Services in 2001 together with Tony Munday. Paul worked closely with the team at PS Financial Services, in order to ensure that his clients were receiving appropriate advice for all of their financial needs. Pike Skinner Chartered Accountants and PS Financial Services merged with PKF Mack Perth in 2016.
Amongst his many qualifications are a Bachelor of Business degree from Curtin University; a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia; a Fellow of the Taxation Institute of Australia and a Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. Paul is also a registered tax agent.
Married with three children, Paul has been a member of Hillarys Yacht Club since 1993, and is a boat owner and keen fisherman.
