Matthew van Mourik
Matt started ABA in 2011 after realising there was a need for services beyond accounting on the Sunshine Coast. He started teaching business owners how to understand and manage their finances and push his clients to make their businesses the best they can be.
Judy is the backbone of ABA’s service and administration. As our longest serving ABA team member and qualified by the passage of time, what Judy doesn’t know about ABA and our clients isn’t worth knowing. Judy’s focus on client relations means every experience you have with ABA will be a pleasurable one.
People and Culture Manager
Nic joined ABA in January 2022 after relocating her family from Toowoomba chasing some warm winter sun. She has been a Business Manager in financial planning and accounting firms for over 13 years, but studying for her MBA ignited a passion for leadership and personal development, turning her focus to people over numbers.
Nicole is a personified ABA. Knowledgeable and experienced, she’ll explain the concepts you need to know in a straightforward, structured way. With a background in dressage, she knows the commitment that it takes to ensure results are achieved.
Conor is a mad keen golfer - He's hit 1 hole in one and is chasing another. It was at Jindalee Golf Club on hole 5 with a par 3 - approx 150m for those who are keeping score. Conor enjoys sport, tv series like Breaking Bad, Ozark and anything with Attenborough and Zero Days. He joined ABA in January 2022 with 8+ years accounting experience.
After living in Melbourne for over 10 years, Matthew escaped the city for the peace and serenity of country Victoria where he now works remotely for ABA. Previously he worked in a mid-tier Melbourne accounting firm for over 8 years developing the skills and attention to detail to help individuals and businesses achieve their goals. Outside of work Matt enjoys playing golf, golf and more golf but his favourite thing to do is hang out with his partner, Amanda, and 2 beautiful, energetic and happy little girls.
Marc van Mourik
Marc is truly a wanderer at heart. He's travelled to over 35 countries but is happiest when he's by the beach. He loves scuba diving and snow boarding and he really wants to get a dog! Previously a CFO for a multinational company, these days he works for ABA remotely and makes us all just a little jealous with his ever changing scenery.
UK native Karen, and her husband Ian, moved to the Sunshine Coast for the outdoor lifestyle and the sunny weather. Karen loves the beach, camping, travelling, and exploring in general.
Born and raised on the Sunshine Coast Lyndal went from tax compliance to commercial accounting. She wanted to help businesses more than just yearly compliance and ABA is a happy mix of both.When Lyndal isn't at ABA crunching numbers she enjoys the ski fields while travelling.
Lauren has always loved numbers so becoming a bookkeeper was a no brainer. She loves a good audiobook but loves dogs even more, insisting on patting every dog she meets, probably making her own two pooches Duke and Caboose a little jelly. Lauren loves outdoor activities and the beach.
Sara and her husband came to Australia from the UK over 20 years ago. They have two teenage daughters who both excel at music, playing piano, clarinet, saxophone and violin. Sara likes cooking, classical music and knowing a Xero file reconciles perfectly! She is currently studying a Bachelor of Commerce Accounting with a major in Economics at USC and aspires to become an Accountant (at ABA of course!).
Alannah came to us fresh out of school, but with a massive passion to learn. Alannah has a passion for organisation and administration, she has become an asset at our front desk assisting both our clients and our team.
