A new addition to Synergy Accountants’ leadership team
It’s been a big few weeks for Synergy team member Ross Grieve.
Last week Ross not only married his partner Jesse in a beautiful ceremony in the foothills of Toowoomba, but he also stepped up as Synergy Accountants’ newest Associate.
“Throw in the end of the financial year and it has been a huge couple of weeks!” Ross laughed.
Ross, who has been part of the Synergy team for the past four years, said he was excited to start this new chapter in his working life. But it was the people he worked with that made it worthwhile.
“We all spend such a large portion of our waking hours earning a living, so it’s incredibly important to be in the right environment with the right people around you,” he said.
“Synergy has an incredibly strong team of advisors but they are also genuinely amazing people to be around. Being involved with such a dedicated and positive group of people makes it all worthwhile.”
The praise goes both ways, with Synergy Director Angie Barnard describing Ross as an inspiring and integral part of the team.
“Ross joined Synergy as an ambitious and driven Senior Accountant who displayed excellent leadership skills,” she said. “He’s an integral part of our leadership team and has worked in perfect alignment with Synergy’s values from day one. For the past couple of years, Ross has been my client manager and we are so excited to now welcome him into the Associate position.”
Accounting may not seem to some as an overly glamorous pathway, but Ross said it was “actually thrilling”… “It is so interesting! Each day I come to work I will inevitably be doing something different to what I thought when I was on the drive into the office.
“We work with so many interesting and successful people and businesses which ensures we get to work on a wide variety of challenges and opportunities. On top of this, we get to genuinely help our clients with their businesses and always feel a strong connection with the successes that our clients have. It is quite thrilling. It really is!” Ross said.
Traditionally, accounting has been a numbers game. Modern accounting, however, is also about people and workforce management, something Ross said is becoming more and more important on the local business landscape.
“Coming into Synergy and working with Angie has led to having many conversations with clients around workforce planning and the benefits of having a plan and processes around the management of the people within your business.
“I have a large number of clients who are new to operating a business and I really get a kick out of assisting them with getting their business started and growing it with them,” Ross said.
“I just feel this is exactly where I am supposed to be at this time in life. It is exciting and encouraging and I am very ready to take on this new challenge.”
