Adelaide accounting and financial services firm Perks is pleased to announce Rob Chapman as the company’s new Chairman.

Rob is one of South Australia’s most respected business identities. He recently returned to Adelaide after two years in Sydney as the Chief Executive of St George Bank.

Prior to this he was Managing Director of BankSA from 2002 to 2010 and is Chairman-elect of the BankSA Advisory Board. He is Chairman of the Adelaide Crows Football Club and has been a member of the South Australian Economic Development Board since 2008.

Rob will commence his five-year tenure as non-executive Chairman of Perks on July 1st.

“I love working with and assisting businesses that have their core focus in SA - especially those with the ambition to grow and prosper with their customers,” he said.

“Perks has established itself as the premier adviser to private business in South Australia by truly engaging with and understanding its clients and their markets - a philosophy that has always been close to my heart.

“The company has experienced strong growth over the past five years and there are many more significant opportunities in the offing. It’s a very exciting time to be involved.”

Perks was BRW’s top-listed Adelaide-based accounting firm in 2010/11 and recently moved to larger headquarters on Greenhill Road to accommodate the 150+ accounting, tax, wealth management, insurance and finance experts now on its team.

Managing Director Mark Roderick said Rob Chapman would bring many qualities to the company.

“There would be few more experienced or respected business minds in South Australia - or, indeed, Australia - than Rob,” Mark said.

“We are tremendously excited to welcome Rob to our team as he will bring enormous market intelligence and know-how as we look to unlock further strategic growth from our integrated services model.”

Mark also paid tribute to outgoing Chairman Philip Pledge.

“Philip was instrumental over his five years in helping Perks manage all the issues that come with managing a growing business and, on behalf of the Board, I would like to thank him for his substantial effort and contribution.”
