It’s a time of growth for the local Wagga Wagga office of RSM Australia, who is merging with JP Pallister & Associates as of 1 July 2016.

Jan Pallister, and her team of four other accountants, have built a well-respected firm since its establishment in 2003. Jan and her team share the same community values as RSM Australia in providing exceptional service to clients with absolute integrity and placing a high-value in developing a strong team.

RSM have also welcomed an additional senior financial planner to the firm, Dean Cooper, who is a well-known business local and is an active member of the Wagga community, having recently performed in Wagga Takes 2 to raise funds for charity. Dean will join the Financial Services Division and will continue to service individuals and businesses with tailored financial advice and planning.

The addition of the six professionals to the local office will continue to strengthen RSM’s footprint in the local business community and throughout the region.

Long-standing Director of the Wagga firm, Angelo Strano, said that watching the local business grow over the past 24 years, since it started in Wagga Wagga in 1992, is an encouraging experience. “The Riverina region has so much to offer and the way in which locals support our business community is something you can only find in regional Australia.

“Working with a diverse range of clients gives me the opportunity to work with specific and ongoing issues relating to client wealth creation and business planning strategies. Working with a progressive country business community is a real bonus for me and my family”, says Mr Strano.

Kim Hutchinson, National Chairman of RSM Australia, said “RSM Australia is committed to providing quality expertise and advice, made possible by a stable and supportive environment in which partners and principals can concentrate on providing outstanding service and advice to clients.

“The Wagga Wagga RSM office, and its clients, will benefit from the skills and expertise of these new professionals.”
