Farewell to Robyn

Robyn is finishing up with Murray Nankivell at Christmas

Robyn has been absolutely fantastic to work with and was a key figure in the success of the merger between Mencel Business Services and Murray Nankivell. She has been instrumental in the transfer of knowledge to get the Murray Nankivell team working seamlessly alongside all our new clients.  

Financial Planning and Super team members: Emma Hill, Karen Gillespie, Robyn Mencel, Carmen Tuohy and Hayley Maddern.

Christmas Closure

Face-lift for Bordertown Office

How good does our new turf look at Bordertown?

Test Match Ready! 

Many thanks to Andrew Rowett from Sunnyside Instant Lawn for supplying the RTF Fescue turf; Dean Wendelborn for installing the turf and new watering system, and ongoing maintenance; and our very tolerant clients who sometimes had to 'run the gauntlet' past the intense watering-in, to make it inside without getting soaked.

We think it looks very inviting, so don't be surprised if you see us out there in bare feet!!

Rick is Retiring

After 40 years in the industry Rick has decided it is time to retire. Rick ran a successful accounting firm in Naracoorte for more than 25 years which he merged with Murray Nankivell last year. Over the last 15 months Rick has worked diligently to make the merger a success and has continued to work with his many loyal clients for a smooth transition.

The whole team at Murray Nankivell want to acknowledge and thank Rick for his commitment to his clients and work ethic. We will miss his humour around the office and want to wish him a long and happy retirement.

Farewell fun with some of the team, left to right: Leah, Lewis, Rick, Aimee and Robyn.

"I like to think of it not so much as retirement, as extended leave and moving on to the next phase of life, spending more time fishing and travelling" says Rick. "I know I have left our clients in good hands with the Murray Nankivell team, who have been a pleasure to deal with during this transitional period".

"Some of our clients have been with me and the Mencel Business Services team for over 30 years, some family businesses for three generations and I have very much enjoyed our personal and business relationship".

"Thank you all so much for your support and the trust you have placed in me, Robyn and our team over the years. I hope in some significant way we have assisted your businesses to grow and prosper."

"Thank you again and all the very best for the future".

Continuing to Grow

We are pleased to announce that Mencel Business Services (MBS) will merge with Murray Nankivell from 1 July 2018.  MBS have provided Accounting, Taxation and other business services out of Naracoorte, Robe and Kingston for over 25 years.  MBS' Directors, Rick and Robyn Mencel, are planning for their retirement and have decided to merge with Murray Nankivell.

Rick and Robyn together with some other MBS employees will become part of the Murray Nankivell team and we have started planning for the transition.  We are excited to have MBS staff and clients join with Murray Nankivell which will add strength and depth to our existing team to continue to improve our service offering.

We believe it just makes sense for the two local businesses to merge and continue to provide first rate know-how to clients in the South East and beyond.
