Eve moved to Cairns in 2004 from England where she worked for a firm of international Chartered Accountants. She has over 16 years experience providing audit, assurance and financial consulting services to public and private sector entities in the United Kingdom and Queensland.
Eve’s approach is based on professional integrity, objectivity and commitment to client service which, at Altius, we see as a real priority. She has developed a deserved reputation for excellent communication skills which are demonstrated by strong, long-standing client relations and consistently effective results.
Eve’s skill base has evolved from experience in external and internal audit engagements, accounting assistance, specific grant acquittal engagements and due diligence work. She has the ability to manage the quality and timeliness of audit and assurance deliverables as well as identify areas for process improvements and control deficiencies and, importantly, provide effective solutions.
Her strengths include dealing with high-level accounting issues as and when they arise in both an external audit role and also in an advisory role for non-external audit clients. She is recognised as an expert in the Not-for-Profit and Local Government sectors, which has enabled strong and trusted client relationships to be built.
Eve’s high level of expertise is demonstrated by the Internal Audit and Accounting assistance services she provides to Hope Vale Aboriginal Shire Council. She leads the Altius team that prepares the statutory financial statements on Council’s behalf. For the past three financial years this has assisted Hope Vale ASC achieve the rare distinction of being the first Council in Queensland to have its audited financial statements signed by the Auditor General. These achievements have been widely acknowledged, including in the Auditor-General’s Reports to Parliament, as not only being significant in their own right, but to be achieved by a remote, indigenous Council is even more noteworthy. Eve is very proud to have led the Altius team, working in collaboration with Hope Vale ASC, over many years.
Eve’s sensitive, yet professional, manner is appreciated by her clients and results in the building of excellent working relationships, which produce first-class outcomes for our clients at Altius.
