Accounting and wealth advisory firm, William Buck, has appointed a director to lead its wealth advisory team.

Michael Rees Evans joined the firm in February from financial advice firm EFS and had worked in financial advice since 2002.

At William Buck, he would be responsible for driving the firm’s innovation and talent development strategies as well as their future capabilities in financial project management.

Head of wealth advisory, Scott Girdlestone, said: “With his background in management consulting together with a passion for continuous improvement, Michael will bring energy and different strategic thinking to our business.

“To deliver what’s important to the client from a non-financial perspective you need to employ a range of strategies such as maximising after-tax cashflow, structuring of assets to ensure efficient ownership, wealth accumulation strategies and asset protection.

“It’s not easy and requires highly skilled individuals. Michael shares our all-inclusive view on financial management which is a rare find.”

William Buck, which acquired Melbourne-based accounting firm BR Wellington last year, had over $4 billion in investments.
