Brett started his career in audit at Price Waterhouse (now PWC) in the early 80’s where he gained the benefit of being exposed to multiple clients in a wide range of industries. He then moved to Thomas Cook Travel & Foreign Exchange in 1988 and held a number of senior roles, initially finance focussed and then ultimately in operational management, including the development and expansion of their retail travel network around Australia.

In 2000, Brett took on the role of Director of Finance & Operations at McGrath Estate Agents, reporting the CEO, where he was responsible for all of their businesses (other than residential sales) and their back office functions.

Brett joined Bell Partners in 2003, and was given responsibility for managing and developing a large client base.

‘In recent years as a senior consultant, I utilise my significant experience in both senior commercial operational roles and finance/accounting functions to enable me to provide real practical advice to clients. I find having sat on both sides of the table provides me with a great balance of knowing what works and what doesn’t in the “real” world.’
