Igor Hnatko CA
Igor ran his own outsourcing and accounting business in Malaysia, growing it from a home office to 16 staff in three years, all whilst running an international trade business. Moving to Australia, he worked for Deloitte on implementation of cloud solution software for numerous businesses and worked with Aboriginal corporations, gaining experience in implementing lean solutions for businesses, and has recently worked as a virtual CFO for a public listed company. Igor is involved in assisting the Kinaway Indigenous Chamber of Commerce, Victoria, assisting the members with a range of accounting issues to help grow their indigenous businesses. Igor loves helping people and businesses and gets great delight at helping clients reach their goals and fulfilling their dreams.
Igor joined Carbon in 2019 by launching our accounting division in Melbourne, working alongside our Melbourne partner Allison Gardiner. Igor believes the key to help his existing clients and future clients supercharge their growth and benefit from an established suite of services was to align with a rapidly growing accounting firm with a client centric approach. Igor met with Carbon’s CFO Mason Dunn and co-founder Nathan Hood and realised that their client centric philosophy was perfectly aligned. From then on, the process was smooth, and we welcomed Igor to the Carbon team.
