Meet the leadership team

John Flint
CPA, MBA, BEc

Over the years, I’ve worked as a researcher, analyst, teacher, accountant, and auditor. My roles have been as diverse as economic research and planning for the development of Canberra, to operations planning for Unilever. My family has spread from Europe to Victoria, so when possible I enjoy traveling to new places, tasting new foods and learning new ideas.

These experiences have led me to build a “portable” accounting business model that can operate from anywhere, with the help of cloud computing technologies.

In my spare time, I’m a keen genealogist, active parishioner at South Yarra Catholic Parish, and love the tranquility of the grassy fairways, coaxing a tiny golf ball to fly straight & avoiding trees!

Michael Flint
CPA, BEng (Chemical)
With formal qualifications in Process Chemical Engineering and Accounting, I am passionate about problem solving, particularly when it is a collaborative process. 
Being a small firm, I love that we are continually improving and finding innovative new ways to help our clients. Working with new technologies in the cloud, gives us the ability to connect with our clients anywhere in the world.  

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling and relaxing at home with my family, (even when that includes memorising the soundtrack to Disney’s “Frozen” with my two young girls!). Otherwise, you’ll find me on the squash court!

  • Background in Quality Control
  • Xero Certified Advisor
  • Squash aficionado!
