He finds it extremely rewarding to work with business owners to improve their profitability and watch their companies grow.
CLINTON GIBSON CA
Clinton is a CA with a B.Com from Curtin University who joined Sterling in 2006 and now meets taxation and business development challenges head-on. He’s a bit like a fire fighter, only not as muscly - Clint is very good at putting out the little spot fires that burst into flames in so many businesses. Right now, Clint is in the gym, working on the rig and hoping the photographer calls soon.

He’s super sporty and received the under 11s Ascot Eagles bowling award for the most wickets taken. He’s also eaten 25 chicken nuggets with large chips in under 10 minutes; we’re not sure which achievement we’re most impressed with.
Andrew is an Accounting major who joined Carbon in June 2014. When he’s not demonstrating his exceptional work ethic and eye for financial detail, he loves sport, gaming and travel. Combining gaming and travel on a trip to Las Vegas he used all his financial super powers to emerge from the neon jungle with a pocketful of winnings and zero encounters with Elvis.
Natasha brings a Bachelor of Commerce with an Accounting major to Carbon, as well as some exceptional dance moves but more of that later.

We hadn’t noticed eh bro.
