Being recognised as one of the top businesses in the Dalby region with a Silver Award, winning the Success and Sustainability Category and coming runner up in the Leadership Category at this year’s Dalby Chamber of Commerce and Industry Business Excellence Awards was a proud moment for locally-owned business, BMO.
BMO is a BRW Top 100 Australian Accounting firms and was also named one of the Australian Tax Office’s top 58 tax agents this year.
“It’s great to get this recognition. It’s a pat on the back for our team and it’s good to know that hardworking, down-to-earth businesses in regional areas are acknowledged,” BMO Partner Peter McKinnon said.
He said the business success was due to a willingness to go over and above what a typical accounting and financial planning firm would do.
“We don’t think about our role as helping a client just with their tax return or just with their investments. We work side-by-side with our clients. We are there with them through every stage of their business’ cycle, through good times and tough times, every step of the way.”
Peter said BMO’s strength was in the way the team had genuine concern for people and kept values at the core of everything BMO does.
“One of the best parts of the Awards night for us was watching the number of our clients who picked up awards. We are probably more chuffed about our clients winning awards than us winning. If our clients are successful, it tells us we are doing our job right.”
BMO’s team of about 50 is headed up by accounting partners Peter McKinnon, Adrian Rasmussen, Kelvin Tyler, Michelle McVeigh and Dave Briese and BMO Financial Solutions Principals, Shane Lee and Mal Smith.
