Wayne Schmidt is to the accounting industry in Australia what Lou Richards was to footy, and Greg Norman to golf. There’s no significant event that he hasn’t been a part of during his 27 years in the industry.
Working with all the major software vendors at various times, he’s seen the transition from paper books to desktop software and now to the cloud. He’s always been a huge advocate for the accountant and their firm, helping them be more efficient, more productive and more profitable.
That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the acquisition of Wayne’s business — Addon Success — and that Wayne will be joining the PracticeIQ team as our Practice Advisor. His role is to keep doing what he’s been doing. He’ll be attending events and conducting webinars, roundtables, roadshows and seminars throughout the year, helping practices to grow, and generating conversation within the industry.
Most importantly, his job is to listen to you, the accountant, at the coalface. Discussing your issues, concerns and success, and helping you in any way he can. Wayne is your advocate within our organisation and in the industry. There’s nothing Wayne likes more than a stage! And he’ll be shouting your stories from the rooftops.
Addon Success will continue to operate as it has been for now, and we have plans for how to make it even better in the future.
Wayne is also an investor in PracticeIQ and we’re thrilled to have him on the journey with us.
Welcome to the team, Wayne!
