Two new directors have been appointed within the firm’s corporate and audit services and business advisory divisions.
HLB Mann Judd has named David Healy as director within its corporate and audit services division and Ryan Kim as director in the Brisbane firm’s business advisory team.
Mr Healy sits on the Perth firm’s mining resources industry focus group and audits a number of Western Australia-based listed and large private companies in the resources, manufacturing, finance, technology, and building and construction industries.
Prior to HLB Mann Judd, he held management accounting roles at the Commonwealth Bank and Rio Tinto Dampier Salt.
“David has been with the firm for a number of years and his promotion to director is testament to his hard work and commitment over a sustained period of time,” said Mann Judd Australasian Association chair Tony Fittler.
Mr Healy is a qualified chartered accountant and holds a bachelor of business studies majoring in accounting and finance from the University of Limerick.
Meanwhile, the firm said Mr Kim provides advice across sectors such as family-owned businesses, hospitality, private client services and professional firms with a client base of high-net-worth individuals, small- to medium-sized businesses and global companies.
“Ryan has recently joined the Brisbane firm, reflecting the opportunities and growth expected in the Queensland market for 2022 and beyond,” said Mr Fittler.
He joined HLB Mann Judd in November last year and was formerly a director of business advisory services and head of Asia desk at a mid-tier accounting firm in Brisbane.
Mr Kim is a registered tax agent and chartered tax adviser, and holds a bachelor of commerce in marketing from Macquarie University and a bachelor of accounting from CQ University.
“Part of our values is encouraging and supporting staff to excel personally and also as part of their respective teams,” said Mr Fittler.
“We foster valued and trustworthy relationships with our clients, and the appointment of both David and Ryan as directors will see these relationships strengthened further.”
