MGI GOLD COAST EXPANDS

Written on the 22 July 2016

MGI GOLD COAST EXPANDS LEADING Australasian acounting network, MGI, has bolstered its team by appointing Helen Whelan as director at its Gold Coast office.

Due to an expanding client base on the Gold Coast, Whelan, who was previously senior manager at MGI's Brisbane office, has been brought on to manage the growing Southport business.

"MGI is committed to the Gold Coast and helping both SMEs and larger businesses with their business, accounting and taxation needs from general accounting to estate planning and business development. There are a lot of high growth companies on the Gold Coast so we're moving toward firmly establishing our presence there," says Grant Field, chairman at MGI.

"Helen has been an invaluable employee for six years and this promotion and relocation is a step up to recognise her talent and efforts. She still has clients in Brisbane which she will continue to assist but her focus now will be on the Gold Coast and managing our team there."

Whelan has a particular interest in compliance and working with clients to get timely information from their internal systems. 

"I tend to work at client premises with their staff so I develop a very good understanding of their business from the inside, which helps me tailor advice accordingly," says Whelan.

"My entire career has been in the accounting profession since I graduated over 25 years ago. I am thrilled that I am now responsible for developing our Gold Coast client base. We've found a lot of businesses here have been underserviced by other practices so we are looking forward to building relationships with these."

MGI was established over 90 years ago. It has a broad portfolio of clients across a range of industries but has particular expertise in assisting family and privately owned private businesses to find unique solutions.
