I spent more than 30 years in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry, fulfilling a wide range of roles at CSL, Glaxo Smithkline, the Howard Florey Institute and in Therapeutic Goods Administration. I am highly experienced in dealing with government agencies and assisting businesses to access incentives, grants and other assistance. During 10 years with KPMG and PwC, I specialised in R&D tax incentive claims as well as providing other tax advice to enterprises in engineering, construction, food manufacturing, environmental monitoring and biotechnology. I fully appreciate the challenges innovators face and I aim to make their lives easier and their businesses stronger.
