Clients appreciate his professionalism, business acumen and can-do attitude. He is not a “yes man”, he just gets in and gets the job done. Michael has the strategic know-how to build a financially successful business beyond traditional accounting. After all, he has done it with MGK.
Michael is a fellow of the Institute of Public Accountants and holds a Masters’ of Professional Accounting. He specialises in taxation, business restructuring and consulting, self-managed superfunds, and is a registered SMSF Auditor.
His passion for business goes beyond the 9-5. He is a past chairman of the SSBEC, BEC of the year twice under his stewardship. He is also a regular at local business networking events, willing to share his experiences to help others.
In his free time, he enjoys muscle cars, property development, travelling and fishing.
Kim is our quiet achiever. She has been with MGK since 2000, starting in administration before transitioning to accounting. After two decades, the time was right for Kim to join, as senior partner, with Michael, forming MGK & Co Accountants in July 2022.
As our senior partner and accountant, Kim is an integral part of the team. Her regular small and medium business clients trust her with a range of accounting and value-add services such as payroll, tax planning, budgeting, business strategies and more. She takes great pride in finding financial efficiencies and helping clients navigate their cash flow and succeed in business. She lives locally; Kim and her husband have six children between them.
With more than 15 years accounting experience behind him, Shane is our details man. He is the one that ensures our clients have the systems and processes in place to weather the inevitable ups and downs of business.
After working at Michael Green Accountants for a few years, Shane joined as partner in 2011, forming Green Pritchard & Co Accountants, becoming the Yin to Michael’s Yang.
Where some accountants are busy putting out client fires, Shane works hard with clients to prevent the fires by planning ahead. This saves business owners time, money and stress and gives them the confidence that their bottom line is in safe hands, so they can concentrate on running their business
A self-described computer geek, if there is a technical or cloud-based tool to improve business efficiency, Shane is already across it.
Shane holds a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting & Finance and is a certified Practising Accountant. As a registered tax agent, he specialises in taxation, business startup, business advisory, entity structuring and planning. He is also a registered SMSF auditor.
When not helping clients navigate the world of business finances, Shane enjoys playing guitar and can often be found cruising around on his Harley Davidson. When time permits, he is also involved in a range of not-for-profit and community organisations.
