This year marks a special milestone for one of our Partners, Ian Hogbin – celebrating his 35 year working anniversary at HQB!
Ian first started working at HQB after deciding to step into the family business alongside his father in 1985. In no time, Ian worked his way up to become a Partner at the firm and promoted to Managing Partner in 1990. Since then, Ian has always made it a priority to set a high standard for HQB staff to ensure that all our clients receive superior service and advice.
During his career as an accountant, Ian has also had some ‘side-projects’; working as the Councillor and Deputy Mayor of the Coffs Harbour City Council, Board member of Chamber of Commerce and Co-ordinator of Coffs Harbour 2050 Think Tank, playing a role in the introduction of the BCU International Stadium, and the launch of Bishop Druitt College, he was also the Foundation Board Members on both of these organisations. As you can see, Ian’s devotion to Coffs Harbour and local businesses has and always will be a focal point of his career.
As Managing Partner, Ian has developed his technical skills by attaining extensive qualifications as a Registered Company Auditor, External Examiner with the Law Society, SMSF Auditor, Limited Financial Planner, Justice of the Peace, and as a Fellow Chartered Accountant. Alongside his wide-ranging qualifications, Ian is also a mentor to other aspiring accountants and his peers alike.
Congratulations on this inspiring achievement Ian!
