HLB Mann Judd Bulks Up Australasian Team With Five Appointments

HLB Mann Judd, the Australia and New Zealand accounting organisation that services private clients, has appointed two new partners and three new directors to address its growing wealth management client market.

In Melbourne, Darryl Smith has been made partner in the business services area, while Andrew Lord was named wealth management director. Smith brings over 25 years of experience in business advisory and private wealth management to his new role. Lord, who specialises in funds management and broking, had his own financial planning practice which merged with HLB Mann Judd Melbourne in 2012.

In Perth, Danny Buckley and Kirstin Stewart step in as directors in the business services division. Stewart joined the firm in 2005 after working for an international mining firm, while Buckley was previously with the company's corporate and audit services unit. 

In Sydney, Todd Gammel assumes the role of business recovery and insolvency partner. He brings 15 years of industry experience to this position.

“We have seen continual growth in our wealth management businesses as well as business advisory activities, and have also received a number of leads from our international association, which has built a particularly strong network in the Asian region," said Tony Fittler, chairman of the HLB Mann Judd Australasian Association. 

HLB Mann Judd is part of HLB International, which has member firms in over 100 countries. The Australasian arm consists of eight member firms and three representative firms and has around 90 partners and 700 staff.
