“We’re all very happy to welcome Matt as a partner,” says Paul Kearney, Founder and CEO of Kearney Group. “Having such high calibre talent at the helm of our organisation is an incredible privilege.”

Matt echoes the Group’s enthusiasm. He says, “As a long term client of the firm, I know the deep value of the work we do here at Kearney Group. So when the opportunity arose to formally join the ranks of the exceptional business owners who support our clients, it was a simple decision for Cath and I to say ‘yes’.”

Paul notes that Matt’s “dedication, expertise and strategic mindset have been instrumental in our success over the past few years.”

“As we set our sights on the future and our strategic plans, I am confident that having Matt on board as partner will bring immense value; to our clients, our team, and our practice,” concludes Paul.
