I have the best job in the world.

Chris Brown

Director, Corporate Finance

Exceedingly disciplined, highly organised and a consummate professional, Chris is well-respected by both clients and colleagues alike. His positive attitude and holistic understanding of what his clients need is highly regarded.

Chris’ special interest in philanthropy and firm belief that anything is possible led him to becoming Founder of the Quality of Life Foundation; to make a difference to others.

Chris has developed a wealth of knowledge and experience consulting to decision makers of client entities from publicly listed companies to SMEs across a wide range of industry groups. His capabilities include strategic planning, corporate and business structuring, venture capital syndications and commercialisation of intellectual property.

He has long been the driving force behind our offshore consulting activities and regularly travels to international financial markets on client assignments.

Chris’ influential business appointments (including international trusteeships for offshore clients, directorships of publicly listed companies in Australia and USA, and directorships of private companies across the globe) have placed him in good stead to perform in the exciting and ever changing international business environment.
