Professional Background

Medium to large sized privately owned businesses and small listed public companies derive maximum business benefits from working with Theo and relying on his more than 20 years experience providing tax consulting and advisory services.

His skills and expertise cover the full spectrum of tax consulting services, and focus on advising clients on international tax issues such as cross border transactions and international structuring.

His thorough understanding of the complexities of Australian and international tax regimes and the great respect he receives both from within Pitcher Partners and with external agencies led to his appointment to head of Pitcher Partners Tax Consulting division in 2011.

Theo is a recognised authority on tax matters and is regularly called on by Government and other regulatory bodies for advice.
