The firm appointed Travis Rickard as partner in the audit and assurance and corporate advisory division in Adelaide and Paul Apolloni as partner in the business advisory and tax consulting division in Wollongong.
“Travis is well respected in the South Australian business community and brings significant expertise,” said Corey McGowan, audit practice leader for Adelaide.
“His appointment means that our growing audit practice will be able to better engage with our existing clients, and it also enables increased independence through audit partner rotation.”
Mr Appolloni’s appointment has also been welcomed by the Wollongong team.
