a position with a local accountancy firm and studied Accountancy at TAFE. He
then worked for the National Australia Bank and a mineral drilling company,
where he spent 7 years as assistant accountant, also overseeing the IT needs of
the business. Wayne travelled extensively in Australia and overseas during this
period, setting up an office in Africa and reviewing operations in Ireland. He
then focused more in the IT field, moving to Axxis Technology for a short
period where he managed the store and gained further experience with computers
and mobile communications.
In 1998, Wayne took on the role of IT administrator with Christies, which
allowed him to combine his skills in IT with his accounting knowledge, enabling
him to provide a valuable service to the clients of Christies. With the
introduction of the GST in 2000, there was a significant shift in the number of
clients who needed computerised accounting systems and Wayne assisted and
trained Christies clients make the transition. He continues to provide support
and training for clients in this area. He also ensures Christies’ internal IT
systems are current, secure and reliable, and that the firm can leverage off
the latest developments in the IT world, enabling us to provide the best
service for our clients.
Wayne has years of experience dealing with a range of software and hardware
platforms including Microsoft operating systems, MYOB (MYOB Certified
Consultant), Phoenix, Xero (Certified Advisor + Payroll Certified),
SQL server, .Net technologies and
cloud based services.
Away from the office, Wayne enjoys spending time with his wife and two
children. He spent many years training in Taekwondo, achieving the rank of 2nd
Dan black belt, and starting a Taekwondo school, before injury forced
retirement. Wayne enjoys camping, canoeing and bushwalking, and takes every
opportunity to unplug and get out and enjoy nature.
