Ewen has in excess of 15-years Public Practice Accounting experience, is a qualified Chartered Accountant and a Director of Sharp Accounting.

Having previously worked at a national mid-tier accounting firm, Ewen has real-world experience advising small to medium businesses (SME’S) on taxation, profit improvement, self-managed superannuation funds (SMSF), cash flow monitoring, business purchases and business sale/owners retirement.

In particular, Ewen is focused on assisting clients to take a long term view to ensure that their business provides for their personal goals. This includes a focus on the initial business selection, business performance during the ownership period and planning for the eventual sale of the business and possible retirement of the client. This holistic approach leads to a better outcome for the client.

In these current times where so much information is available online, what Ewen provides is a clear everyday interpretation of the rules and opportunities that apply for clients and also offers accountability and coaching for business owners.

Ewen and his wife Lyndal have two young children and enjoy getting out and travelling in their caravan to explore. Ewen’s sporting focus is long distance trail running (any distance up to 100 kilometres) and competes throughout the year in events ranging from 10 – 100 kilometres.
