Craig is a highly experienced practice principal working across all areas of business and taxation.

His passion for business started when he was a student. Named Business Student of the Year at Frankston TAFE in 1982, he went on to complete a Bachelor of Business (Accounting) at what is now Monash University. Before starting his practice, he worked as a financial accountant for a transport company and an accountant for numerous public practices.

MORE THAN AN ACCOUNTANT

Through his independent consulting firm Quality Assurance for Accountants, Craig also helps Australian accounting firms successfully prepare for quality reviews, employing his vast knowledge of accounting quality standards and quality controls.

When CPA Australia first introduced their Quality Assurance Program, Craig was chosen to be part of the original intake of reviewers. During his 16 years on the board, he has given valuable input into the review process and has made significant contributions to the development of the board itself.
