Colin’s parents moved to Murwillumbah in the late 60’s from Sydney and began an Electrical Contracting business which is still going strong today with Colin’s brother, Bill at the helm.
Colin went to school in Murwillumbah and finished with two years at school in Lismore. A degree in Economics soon followed from the University of Queensland and then a two year Advanced Diploma in Accounting from the NCIT. These qualifications are rounded off by a Masters Degree in Professional Accounting from The Southern Cross University, completed just this year.
Colin has a keen understanding from many years of bookkeeping and office administration of what life is like on the other side of the desk. He understands the time constraints many small businesses face in work/family and then keeping a presentable set of accounts and so is in the best position to understand client’s information, no matter how cryptic, and produce the silk purse with a minimum of fuss and bother.
Colin has worked at Mayberry Meldrum and Anderson since 1999, taking his long service leave in August last year to tour Europe with his son Max on his Motorcycle that he had shipped over for the trip. Colin’s interests also include cooking, playing Rugby, collecting old stuff (records, 60’s Mercedes Benz’s, kitchy kitchen stuff etc), and film photography.
