About Me

Catherine started with HQB in 2017, became the Business Manager in 2019, then joined as a Partner in 2020. Catherine’s passion is people, and being able to help each individual reach their highest potential. She brings over 20 years’ experience in accounting and commercial business. Part way through her career, she left private practice to learn about business from the inside out. During her time as a successful General Manager and Licensee in busy venues within the hospitality industry, she gained invaluable hands on experience in hospitality, knowing what is important to business owners, and how to lead a team to acquire the desired results. Catherine forms a partnership with each client to understand their business and what success means to them. Then works together closely with her clients to refine personalised models and processes to help them achieve success.

In her time away from the office, Catherine enjoys spending quality time with her family and friends, and exploring the beautiful outdoors as much as possible.

What Our Clients Say

I'm really enjoying the personalised touch and service I'm receiving from Ian and Siarn. Always prompt, professional and happy to answer my silly questions and help me stay informed. I've been a client of Bill's and HQB for about 20 years. Since Bills retirement he passed me on to Ian and the quality of the service just seems to keep getting better. HQB comes highly recommended by me.

HQB accountants have been an asset to our business. They have made Job Keeper a breeze and kept our business strong. They respond to emails quickly. They have been terrific value for us as they have brought knowledge and expertise that I don't have even if I had the time to do my accounting. They have taken the time to understand my business and structure our finances accordingly.

Amazing service from James (& Brianna), going well above his responsibilities to his clients. Cannot recommend James highly enough. HQB a highly professional and responsive accounting firm. Incredibly quick at responding, yes, often after hours, which is more than we would ever expect from any professional. I am continually recommending James to friends and family. Many thanks James. Kind regards, Lyn (& Jeff) Green

James became our Accountant last year and he has handled all our entities swiftly and pro actively. We are incredibly impressed with him and HQB and feel very comfortable in their hands to manage our Business. James is always prompt in replying and sometimes out of hours and his handling of our recent predicament with COVID 19 has helped us manage our Business successfully through this trying time. Thank you James and the team at HQB. We will always recommend you highly,.
