Mid-tier accounting and consulting firm Mazars has bolstered its partner team with Greg Halse. 

Based in Melbourne, Greg Halse is a familiar face for Mazars. For the last seventeen years, Halse operated his own practice (Crossroads HR) and during this time he has worked together with Mazars on a number of joint engagements.

“We have known Greg and have utilised Crossroads HR for our clients for many years and witnessed his approach to client care, with sincerity and pragmatic advice. We’re delighted to have him join the team and further extend the services we offer clients,” said Richard DeBono, Managing Partner of the Melbourne office of Mazars

Halse said: “I’m excited to have been invited to join the partner team of Mazars. The opportunity to represent the firm here in Melbourne allows me to maintain personal local connections with clients, whilst expanding the range of services to offices in Sydney, Brisbane and internationally.”

The move to invite Halse follows growing demand for the firm’s human resources consulting services, said DeBono, against the backdrop of major disruption being faced by CHRO’s triggered – and accelerated by – the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes a need to reinvent the workplace, meet changing employee expectations and build digital capabilities, while providing strategic workforce planning insights to the business. 

Halse specialises in improving efficiency in the workplace, building high performing and engaged teams, and delivering HR transformation. He also has extensive experience with coaching leaders to develop their “soft skills”, and supporting career transition and outplacement initiatives. Prior to running his own practice, he worked for telecom company Optus, latterly in the role of HR manager.

The appointment comes three months after Mazars admitted six new partners to its privately-held partnership in Australia: Cheryl-Anne Laird, James Martin, Donavin van Rooyen, Michael Wen, Simone Gordon, and Tim Mouritz.
