Cheesman Applegarth & Partners are thrilled to welcome Paola Malferrari, Alex Pechey and Madeleine Kinnear to the team.
Paola Malferrari has joined Doug’s team as a Graduate Accountant in July. Paola and her family are from the Philippines and America but she has spent most of her life here in Toowoomba. At another local firm Paola has worked her way up from the admin team to accountant. Paola is on track to finish her Bachelor of Business Commerce Major in Accounting & Finance this year and is going to continue her studies to become a Chartered Accountant. When she is not at work, Paola enjoys walking, running, skiing, playing golf, heading to the driving range, practicing drawing/painting, getting stuck into a good book and going for a swim to clear her head as well. On top of this Paola really enjoys getting out to the events around Toowoomba like the polo, Brewoomba and many more. Paola has found Cheesman Applegarth very family friendly and loves that we support smaller local charities.
More recently Alex Pechey has joined us as a Graduate Accountant on Jodi’s team. Alex is almost finished her dual Bachelor of Business Management/Accounting, majoring in management through CQUniversity. Throughout her studies, Alex also worked as a teacher’s aide at the Glenmorgan State School, near where she grew up and lived with her parents on their cattle property. Alex is no stranger to Toowoomba as she was a boarder at St Ursula’s College. Alex’s partner is also from the bush and is currently a mustering helicopter pilot in the Gulf. When not at work Alex enjoys cooking, being outdoors and Toowoomba park runs. Alex is looking forward to working with the large variety of people at Cheesman Applegarth and is excited to be exposed to the many different services we have to offer.
Also joining Jodi’s team is Accountant Madeleine Kinnear. Maddy grew up in Grafton NSW and relocated with her family to Toowoomba and went to Downlands College for year 11 and 12. Prior to Cheesman Applegarth Maddy worked for a very large building company in Brisbane as part of the inhouse Accounting team. Maddy has a Bachelor of Business with a major in accounting from QUT and became a Chartered Accountant in February this year. Along with her partner Blaise who is an electrician, Maddy is spending a lot of her spare time working on their first home, a 1920s Queenslander in Newtown. The current task is to get the yard under control. When Maddy manages to find the time, she enjoys going to the gym, playing hockey, heading to the beach and hiking. Maddy came from a much larger team but has found the Cheesman Applegarth team very welcoming.
Welcome to the Team welcome Paola, Alex and Maddy!
