A PKF publication outlining relevant business issues for you

MD welcome

Welcome to our first edition of Pulse for 2024 – it’s hard to believe we are well into March already.

We concluded 2023 on a high note with the exciting addition of PKF Port Stephens and PKF Upper Hunter to our group. These strategic partnerships bolster our regional presence and enrich our expertise, enabling us to offer comprehensive solutions and personalised services to our clients across a broader range of industries and locations. We are delighted to have the talented professionals from Port Stephens and Upper Hunter join us, and we eagerly anticipate working together for future growth and success.

The start to 2024 has been filled with renewed energy and a focus on strategic planning across the PKF network. The Australia and New Zealand Business Advisory teams came together in Melbourne, while the Business Recovery and Insolvency teams from Sydney and Melbourne gathered in the picturesque vineyards of the Hunter Valley. The innovative and collaborative strategic pathways created during these conferences promise to enhance the
value we deliver to our clients.

Building on the success of last year’s sponsorships with the nib Newcastle Knights and the Hunter Valley Wine Show, we have reaffirmed our commitment to community engagement by partnering with both organisations again for 2024. An integral part of our ethos is to give back, actively participating in initiatives that enrich the lives of those around us. This edition of Pulse highlights our community involvement, including Andrew Beattie’s Mount Everest Trek with the Mark Hughes Foundation, Nick Falzon’s involvement with Water Polo Australia, Paul Pearman and the Audit team’s generosity with Surfaid, along with Teresa Richardson’s support of the Nelson Bay Touch Football Association.

While we focus on the future, our history is very important to us. With this in mind, we are excited to launch our most recent mini-series project ‘Retrospect’, commemorating over 45 years of service to the Newcastle and Hunter region. Our videos feature many familiar faces, documenting our evolution from a small Hunter Street firm to becoming an integral part of a leading international group. Stay tuned as we release short episodes periodically throughout the year. 

We hope you enjoy this edition of Pulse, feel free to contact us with any questions, queries or comments you may have.
