Amit has also held the title of Executive Director and has spent over 15 years providing audit and assurance services to Australian and international clients, specialising in large government trading enterprises and not-for-profit companies across the finance, insurance, and energy sectors.

"I enjoy working in a complex and fast-paced environment. I am passionate about helping businesses optimise their bottom line  
with my 'can-do' approach."

Amit is known for his questioning approach, if you tell him it cannot be done, he will always approach it with a 'why not' attitude.

Amit considers himself a nerd when it comes to debits and credits and will not hesitate to teach accounting principles to non-financial people. He is a West Coast Eagles supporter, but when it comes to cricket, his heart still lies with India.
