“I ask the right questions; saving my clients’ time and adding value.”

Briar Bicos

Principal, Audit & Assurance

With a passion for variety, Briar challenges the auditor stereotype. Thriving on the opportunity to work in a different office, with different people, in different businesses within different industries – every day – Briar is quick to deflect suggestions that her job is boring.

Valued by her clients as a great listener, with compassion for people, Briar adds that she treats her clients “like a person, not a page of numbers.”

Briar loves a challenge. The more challenging a task is, the more interesting she finds it, and the more alive she feels at work. This mentality extends past her role as an auditor – she relished the opportunity to partake in a rigorous internal firm project to improve our client service methodology and culture.

Mentoring junior colleagues through CA training and captaining various netball teams, Briar is a natural leader whose colleagues often look to her for support and guidance.
