With over 90 partners and over 750 staff across Australia, PKF is one of the country’s ten largest accounting-origin professional services firms. PKF Port Stephens will be integrated into the wider PKF Sydney and Newcastle division, which has a headcount of around 250.

“We are excited for our clients and what the rebranding means for them. Being able to draw on PKF’s wide range of services by qualified experienced people means our clients no longer have to look to Newcastle or Sydney to access the services and advice that an international firm offers,” said Buckley Richardson partner, Misty Kero.

“We truly believe that the Port Stephens area needs a professional services firm that offers all that PKF can bring to our business community whilst continuing to remain local, loyal, and supportive of the Port Stephens area.”

Andrew Beattie, a partner at PKF Sydney and Newcastle, said the group is delighted with the addition to its network. “Bringing PKF Port Stephens into the network here in the Hunter has been a step that we have wanted to take for a while now. We are very pleased to have them on board.”

With the addition of a locale in Port Stephens, PKF now has 14 offices nationally.
