The company celebrated their 13th birthday on Monday April 9.
What are your biggest challenges?
Mark – who has been in the industry for 18 years – has seen legislative and operative changes, as well as changes in the way clients spend and save their money, which presents big challenges.
“We’re also finding that a lot of businesses are underinsured,” Mark said.
“They don’t put a value on directors and key personnel. The issue of losing quality people and income if something happens - I don’t know if that’s taken into consideration.”
What have been your biggest highlights in the past year?
“We’ve just come off winning a National Award from our Licensee of Practice of the Year,” Mark said.
“We have in the past been a finalist for the Telstra Small Business Awards as well. But this year we’re very excited about moving back into our renovated premises, so we can’t wait to get back to where we need to be, at 19 Forrest Avenue. It’s an awesome facility.”
