Peter is the principal of our firm and holds the CPA public practice certificate. Having studied accounting every year in high school, he commenced an accounting traineeship with a firm in Mackay as soon as his schooling was completed. The traineeship involved working full-time as well as studying part-time for two years in order to obtain his professional qualifications. He then finalised his accounting degree with two years full-time at University in Rockhampton.
Upon completion of his bachelor studies he was fortunate to obtain a position with a local firm in Kingaroy and then moved to Griffin Jones in 1995 where he commenced as the branch manager and subsequently purchased the local practice in 2002.
