Most of you know Michael really well as one of our owner/Directors. With over ten years’ experience at Nexis, Michael began his career with us in 2009 as a Manager and has worked his way up to now being one of our highly valued and experienced owner/Directors. Michael’s passion for accounting and business advice is second to none. Having recently relocated from Canberra to Brisbane to launch the newest Nexis office, Michael is excited about the prospects of building something from scratch in a new location. His best piece of accounting advice? Every business should have a Chief Financial Officer to drive the financial strategy. The analysis that the CFO performs will ensure that not only does the business have the best chance of success, but it also has a clear plan for growth and succession.
So, what does Michael get up to when he’s not busy building the Nexis empire in Brisbane? We chatted with him to find out:
Who inspires you and why?
I find my inspiration comes from many different people, but not the usual celebrities or entrepreneurs. Whether it’s my family and colleagues or clients, seeing people achieve things that they thought were out of their reach is amazing to me. The genuine excitement of my daughters when they work something out for the first time is priceless!
What’s the last book you read?
I’ve just read Tell Take – the new collection of short stories by Jeffrey Archer. I have always loved his books and the way he tells a story is riveting.
What are you currently watching on Netflix?
As a latecomer to Netflix, I’m still catching up. At the moment, Narcos, Suits and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are my favourites.
Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?
A Greenkeeper at Augusta National. I’d love to have the course to myself and drive around on a lawnmower taking it all in. I’m sure I’d find time to play a few holes too!
