Barry is a third generation Chartered Accountant, with over 30 years’ experience owning, growing and leading accounting & financial services firms. He brings his lifetime of experience and passion for the industry to AZ NGA, leading the accounting growth strategy.
Commencing his career as a graduate with Arthur Young in Canberra, Barry obtained his CA qualification and Practicing Certificate, and then set out to build his own Accounting business in regional NSW at age 25.
Having achieved his goal, he then merged his practice with his father’s before teaming up with WHK, as a founding member of the Central West business unit.
This allowed Barry to progress his career from Principal, Managing Partner, Chief Executive and then Regional Chief Executive in the listed Crowe Horwath financial services firm.
Seeking a new challenge, Barry and his wife Hayley, moved to Sydney from Dubbo in 2014 so Barry could take a CEO role with a Countplus Ltd start-up. In 2016, Barry established his consulting firm, Worthmore.
His broad range of experience with listed, mid-tier and medium size accounting & financial services firms positions Barry to bring significant industry experience and knowledge to AZ Next Generation Advisory executive team.
When not chasing family around Australia, he can be found in the surf at Coogee or at Leichardt Oval on a good winters’ day, cheering on the Tigers!
