The Behrens Rowley Partners

DOM PITRONACI

Bcom, CA.

Dom has always had an interest in the vitality of business success and the numbers gave him a way to measure the success. He began working with Charles in January 2000 whilst still studying Accounting at Macquarie University.

“I came here for 2 weeks of work experience in October 1999, moved boxes as Behrens Rowley had just begun in North Parramatta. 15 years later, I’m still here”

Dom became a partner in July 2013 and is excited by the next generation of business clients he deals with on a regular basis.

Dom says, “I pride myself on being an accountant, but not speaking like an accountant. Instead I make sure my clients understand the concept of the strategy and they trust me with the technicalities behind it.

People come to me with a thought, usually a reason why they want to do it. I then come up with the how, and explain the why.

I love that clients ring and ask about anything and everything about their decisions. A phone call can range from capital gains to the colour of their new business car.

Dom has a keen interest in Self Managed Superfunds and long-term wealth strategies.

Outside of work he maintains his non-accountant façade by gardening, riding his motorbike and latin dancing.

Grant Behrens

B.Bus (Accounting), CA.

Grant started with Behrens Rowley over 10 years ago while completing his university degree. Under the guidance of Dom and Charles, he is now a fully qualified Chartered Accountant and he has gained a wealth of experience in the areas of accounting, taxation, auditing, self managed super funds and business services. After enjoying his high school work experience at a chartered accounting firm when he was 16, Grant decided he would pursue accounting as a career and has not looked back since.

Grant enjoys the variety of work that arises from working in a public practice firm and being able to help his clients in range of different areas within their business. “The favourite part of my job is working closely with clients to help with their business/individual needs whether it is tax compliance, bookkeeping, obtaining finance or helping with the various issues involved with starting a new business, right down to individual tax returns.”

Consultants

CHARLES BEHRENS

B.Bus (Acc) FCA, FTIA.

Charles is the founding partner of Behrens Rowley and has over 40 years of experience in Public Practice. He has extensive experience and specialises in advising his small to medium sized business clients in the areas of Taxation, Accounting and Business Management. Charles holds a Bachelor of Business (Accounting) degree from the University of Technology, Sydney, is a Fellow of the Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand. He is also a Fellow of the Taxation Institute of Australia, a Certified Practicing Accountant, Registered Tax Agent, Registered Company Auditor and a Justice of the Peace in NSW.

He became a Chartered Accountant because he saw the profession as one that could satisfy his desire to not only become a skilled professional, but to also be in a position to be his own boss. Even as a young man he had a burning desire to be the master of his own destiny.

He’s stayed in the profession because he enjoys working with his clients to help them achieve success in their business lives and with that to help them grow their personal wealth. Charles is a people person who loves working with and interacting with clients at all stages of their business development.

Charles has had great success over the years in acting as a mentor to business clients and particularly young first time business owners. He takes enormous pleasure and pride in assisting and sharing his business knowledge with these young clients to see them achieve successful business outcomes.

Charles brings a wealth of practical business experience together with a broad skill base in Accounting, Management, Taxation and Superannuation. He also brings to his clients a professional who genuinely cares and will always be there to guide them through the various pitfalls that they can face in their business lives.

He still gets a buzz when a client old or new rings with a business idea or a new business problem. He loves the sense of being his clients’ go-to-guy!

Now in the later part of his professional career, Charles takes great joy from mentoring the talented young team at Behrens Rowley. And when he finally does decide to really work on his golf handicap, he’ll take great pride in the people and the organisation he’ll leave behind.
