Hi, my name is Shaun and I am the Owner/Operator of First Class Accounts – Glebe.

I am passionate about using my 25+years experience in accounting and finance to partner with small/medium business owners to help grow their businesses by relieving them of much of their compliance and admin burden, freeing them up to focus on what they do best !

Beginning my career in KPMG’s Audit & Advisory department and holding senior finance roles in companies including GE Capital and Foxtel I have come to understand the importance of strong financial leadership to any organisation.

I enjoy being able to share my knowledge with my clients, helping them to put in place the systems and processes that will allow them to make fully informed business decisions and implement sound strategies for growth.

The services I offer cover the full range from simple bookkeeping and compliance to a virtual CFO service. Feel free to contact me to discuss how we might partner together to grow your business!
