Matthew Harris

CA, BBus, MCom, AGIA ACG (CGP), ACIM

Matthew doesn’t see himself as a consultant or external adviser, but more as a partner of each business and client he works with. Heading our Pharmacy division, he assists clients with his extensive industry expertise and can develop unique solutions for clients’ particular challenges.

As the Managing Partner of MSI Taylor Business Services, Matthew understands that businesses in Australia currently face an economic climate that requires increasing efficiency, productivity and innovation. His skills include acquisitions, structuring, financial management and planning.

If he’s not at work – you’ll catch him mulling over a nice red, or driving around on his tractor – hopefully not both at the same time.

Shane has a very ‘plain talk’ style to business advice, being energetic and proactive in assisting his clients meet their goals. He’s passionate about helping develop strategies to grow revenue, profit and overall business value and takes a hands-on approach in understanding each client’s unique processes and drivers.

Being a bit of a gym-junkie himself, he specialises in the health and fitness industries, as well as having broad experience in construction, property, retail, medical and hospitality. And he knows a lot of stuff about SMSFs.

Oh yeah, and he’s an auditor, too.

Genevieve Golden

Genevieve joined MSI in 2016 as a hands-on and solutions focused advisor and practice manager, following a career in business consulting and turnaround management. She is now our Consulting Partner.

She has broad experience across financial management, budgeting and forecasting, HR development, and process improvement. Implementing change management practices, she loves working with clients to make their businesses as efficient and streamlined as possible so owners can maximise profit potential.

You’ve just got to keep the coffee up to her.

Kirsty Picking

Mark Connolly

BBus, MFAA

Mark‘s 30 years’ of experience in the finance industry has given him an insight into numerous industries, economic cycles and demographics. He’s been around enough to see it all.

His philosophy is to be part of his clients’ management team working with accountants and lenders to help them in continuing to grow. He can assist with finance for personal or commercial requirements:

Commercial lending | Fleet purchases | Trade and debtor financing | Insurance funding | Home loans

Drop in for a coffee and a chat about your financial needs. He’s always good for a yarn.

Julie Holland

CA, BBus, GradDip APP SC

Julie has built her career around a pharmacy specialisation and from that, has also built a reputation for her particular knowledge in that area. Add in experience with hospitality, dental, medical and high-wealth investors and you find Julie provides friendly, efficient and reliable service to clients giving them a detailed insight into their business performance.

Julie admits to an interest (more of an obsession really) with technology – specifically developing business information systems and streamlining workflow and procedures for high efficiency gains.

Cameron Anderson

CA, BBus

Cameron joined MSI Taylor as a graduate in 2011. So, he’s done the hard yards working his way up to Manager level, all the while learning and growing his own particular skillset as a detail-guy in the tax and compliance space, with a pharmacy specialisation.

Cam loves understanding the nitty-gritty of clients’ businesses, and has a head for technology. He’s very procedurally-driven and likes to make sure that clients are getting the best out of their software and are able to understand the key drivers of their business and what the numbers mean.

Michael Purcell

BBus

Michael joined MSI Taylor as a partner in 1995 and now provides consulting services with his long-established relationships.

One of his key strengths is the ability to explain the ‘how and why’ of business strategies and taxation planning to clients. Michael’s adept in all the technical requirements and has developed a deep understanding of clients’ needs, with a particular passion for helping SMEs with structuring and taxation advice. This ultimately gives them the knowledge to make informed business decisions.

Outside of work he’s a bit of a muso and doesn’t mind blowing off the cobwebs with a dirt bike ride.

Sammi Gu

Sammi has been part of the MSI family for over 10 years, moving from Senior Accountant to Manager over that time. As a CPA, she has over 16 years’ experience working across all facets of accounting and tax, and holds a special interest in business strategy.
