Ashley Ross CA
Accounting & Tax Partner
Before joining Carbon Group, Ash spent six years honing his skills at an International Accounting and Consulting firm before joining Ross Group in 2004. Established by his father in the 1980’s, Ross Group specialised in working with small and medium-sized business owners to help them grow their revenues, increase their profits and drive their business value.
After becoming Managing Director of Ross Group in 2012, Ash played a key role in delivering the firm’s value proposition and service offering. Genuinely committed to helping clients succeed in business and in life, Ash dedicated himself to educating clients on the importance of creating both a healthy business and a healthy work life balance.
With a generous personality and great sense of humour, Ash is a natural leader and business mentor, and genuinely enjoys creating enduring relationships with his clients. Ash has sat on a number of Boards and is currently Treasurer of the Monash Business Awards.
Early in 2020, Ash began collaborating with Carbon Group after being impressed by their passion and commitment to growing their clients’ businesses and seeing first-hand the exceptional customer experience they provide. He was also excited by the prospect of a partnership that would offer a real benefit to his clients, putting a nationwide network of knowledge and resources at their disposal.
Two motto’s drive Ash’s business philosophies: “It’s not the money that you earn that’s important, it’s what you do with it” and “Treat people how you would like to be treated, and always show respect.” Ash firmly believes that if you follow these two principles, you’re well on your way to success!
Get to know Ash
When Ash isn’t crunching numbers or working with clients, you’ll most likely find him hanging out with his wife Jacqui, and kids Georgia, Johnny and Charlotte. Or at an AFL match watching his beloved Saints getting beaten on the field. Much to the astonishment and delight of many, Ash is also a self-confessed country music buff… what he doesn’t know about Garth Brooks just isn’t worth knowing!
