Our People

Nathan Walter
Manager - Manjimup

Biography

Nathan started his career in the Manjimup office as an undergraduate accountant after growing up and attending school in Manjimup. It was late in 2000, just after the introduction of the GST, that an opportunity arose for Nathan to hone his accounting skills in real practice while completing his studies. This enabled him to develop excellent hands on skills to be able to deliver exactly what the client wants. Over the past 12 years Nathan has worked with numerous clients who are involved in all aspects of business.

After completing his degree and CA he developed a particular interest in the wine industry. He has been the chief steward at the local RSM Timber Towns Regional Wine Show since 2006. Having grown up on a horticultural farm he believes that he can relate to farmers and has an excellent understanding of the difficulties faced by them on a day-to-day basis.

He is a regular presenter at the Small Business Centre delivering seminars and workshops on such issues as cashflow management, establishing a business, taxation for small business, costing and pricing products and services correctly. Nathan takes pride in his role as a community leader and put that to the forefront in 2011 when he became the president of the Manjimup Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He also was appointed a board member of the Manjimup Primary School.

Giving back to the community is very important to Nathan.
