Empire Financial Group
Empire Financial Group helps successful people, who value their time, make smarter decisions with their money.
My entire career has been focused on establishing and fostering lasting relationships with like-minded professionals; attracting and nurturing the best talent in our business, and an unrelenting drive for exceptional service in all client and professional interactions.
As a uni student, I spent my holidays in an accounting practice lodging tax returns and coding bank statements. The "super and insurance guy" would stop by to visit from time to time, and one day I asked him "How do I get to do what you do?". Well, he gave me a chance to learn from him. And so in 1997, I registered the name Empire Financial Group and worked with him on a contractor basis. It beat flipping burgers as a part time uni job!
The financial services world has changed a lot since then, as has my role within it. In the early 2000's, I was responsible for the inception and roll out of the LJ Hooker Superannuation Fund, at the time Australia's largest real estate network with over 500 offices and 5000 staff. This also led to a partnership in rolling out Australia's first ever community based super fund in regional Victoria, with the aim of providing benefits for local community development.
After the sale of these funds to a Melbourne based listed company, Empire re-emerged, dealing with individual, family and small business clients, assisting them with building wealth through strategic and goal driven financial planning.
Complimenting my work at Empire, I am the WA representative to the Securitor National Advisory Council. I thoroughly enjoy the regular call ups to speak on financial strategy to the various accounting, finance and real estate groups in our network, and associations such as the Institute of Public Accountants.
Outside the office, I indulge my interest in politics and am the ongoing Campaign Chairman to a State Government Cabinet Minister.
