Synergy partner Mark Pattrick has taken out the prestigious Partner of the Year award at the 2018 Australian Accounting Awards.
Since starting at Synergy in 2007, Mark has worked across all levels in Federal Government. Part of what makes Mark so successful is his ability to empower his Executive Directors and Senior Managers to build businesses within businesses. This gives his team the autonomy to make decisions, including recruitment, revenue management and market positioning.
One of Mark’s proudest achievements in 2017 was the promotion of three of his Senior Managers to the level of Executive Director across our team of 60+ consultants. Mark was intimately involved in their professional development and his continual mentoring over several years has led to improved revenue growth across the team. Mark was also instrumental in the development, mentoring and internal promotions of three Partners in 2018, 2017 and 2015.
Through strategic recruitment decisions, Mark has made a significant impact in expanding the capabilities that Synergy can offer our clients across all service lines. A combination of organic staff development/promotion and targeted recruitment of talented individuals has helped drive sustainable revenue growth.
Mark has a unique ability to resonate positively with people from diverse backgrounds, age groups, experiences and organisations; something which Synergy is very grateful for. His personable, enthusiastic and disarming persona results in a natural approach to business development which often has clients demanding more services than we have the capacity to deliver at the time.
Mark’s long-term relationships with several prominent Departmental Secretaries (CEOs), CFOs, CIOs and COOs has led to the regular recruitment of like-minded professionals to undertake work to the similar high standards clients expect (and receive) from Mark. This has helped create a quality firm renowned for our high quality and pragmatic solutions.
Mark supported the incubation of the Data Analytics Service Line which is now providing cutting edge dashboards and visualisations which are in high demand by our clients.
Marks name is well known around the Canberra community and the humble accountants and consultants of Synergy are ever so grateful to have Mark leading Synergy. Not only is Mark an excellent consultant but he is focused on ensuring the rest of Synergy have an excellent work/life balance but also an understanding of their current roles and career progressions.
