With family roots in Warracknabeal, Joel's grandfather farmed grain with a team of twelve Clydesdales. It's no wonder Joel enjoyed his childhood weekends visiting a cattle farm in Mount Crawford collecting horse shoes; it's in his roots. 


Joel grew up in Birdwood in the Adelaide Hills and has a strong appreciation for the country life. Whilst spending his earlier years visiting family in the South-East Joel established a strong connection to the Limestone Coast.


Part of the Naracoorte team Joel manages a diverse client base and provides strategic business advice, working to improve profitability and a balanced quality of life for his clients.
Joel joined Murray Nankivell in 2008 after working in Melbourne for several years with an international firm. After obtaining a Bachelor of Commerce Joel completed the CPA program and is now part of the management team at Murray Nankivell. 


Now with Naracoorte as home, Joel has four children; Ethan, Connor, Reeve and "Princess" Keely. Joel and his wife Jodie are well integrated with the community of Naracoorte through Maxlife Church and Sunrise Christian School where Ethan and Connor enjoy being part of the family. 


Having a consistent drive to develop and broaden his service offering, Joel specialises in providing business advice to a range of clients from farmers and support businesses to retailers and investors. With consideration of clients' personal goals Joel endeavours to provide optimum quality in the delivery of those services. 


Joel manages much of our Naracoorte office workflow and is also responsible for managing our Audit division.
