I am proud to be the Director of Walsh Accountants, where I have had the privilege of assisting clients and staff to grow their businesses and mindset for over 25 years.
My passion is inspiring business owners to see the potential of their business and the opportunities to grow and my focus is working with clients to overcome their business challenges in a rapidly changing global and dynamic local economy.
I lead a growing team of people who are more than accountants, they are thought leaders in business, taxation alternatives and accounting systems. We are constantly learning and challenging ourselves with new ideas, projects, and any opportunities that enable us to grow our mindset. This focus improves the value and impact we have on our clients and the growth of their businesses and financial outcomes.
Description of Role

He is passionate about learning and reading and is well known for sharing his extensive knowledge on all areas of business and industry with those who can benefit from it, including clients, professional associates, and the Walsh team.
With extensive knowledge in medical and health, family business groups, engineering, manufacturing, property and international trade, Tom focuses on strategy and execution to support entrepreneurs to grow their business, maximise the sale of business and is experienced in restructuring and estate planning to maximise asset protection and tax efficiency.
