Maryellen Salter announced as new Partner
The Partnership and all staff congratulate Maryellen Salter on her promotion to Partner, effective 1 July 2019.
Maryellen joined the firm, then Wise, Lord and Ferguson, in December 1998 as a graduate of University of Tasmania. She went on to complete her Chartered Accountants (CA) certificate and settle into her career.
In late 2003 Maryellen decided to embark on a two year working holiday to the UK. Two years quickly extended, and she ended up living and working in the UK for 13 years! Throughout this time Maryellen worked for the Audit Commission, PKF, Grant Thornton and a London Borough Council doing external audit, internal audit, corporate governance, risk management and anti-fraud senior management roles.
When Maryellen returned home to Hobart, taking up the opportunity to re-join WLF was an easy decision.
“The values that WLF stand for really fit with my own personal value set” she says. “I also knew the Partners were people I wanted to go into business with in the long-term. It was an easy decision because they are all amazing people and it’s great to be a part of a team that feels more like family”.
Maryellen’s return to WLF saw her take on the role of a Director in our Audit, Assurance and Advisory department. She works with a diverse client base and is committed to adding value to her clients and recommending practical solutions to problems.
The Partners are extremely proud to welcome Maryellen to the Partnership, effective 1 July 2019.
