Kennerlys, award-winning specialists in family business and taxation services, is thrilled to announce that the company marks its 25th birthday today. 

Kennerlys was formed in West Perth on this day in 1990 by Don Kennerly and Sue Peterson.  The pair had previously worked in accounting together and were well-known and respected among their loyal clients — mostly small-to-mid-size local businesses.  While Don retired in 2000, Sue has remained a constant, dedicated and hard-working professional for Kennerlys’ original and newer clients, and a highly admired, integral part of the Kennerlys team.

“I am very honoured to celebrate this important milestone in the company’s history.  In today’s highly competitive and dynamic market place, it’s a huge achievement to be part of a company that has stood the test of time with a loyal client base, and a team of skilled, dedicated professionals who deliver award-winning services,” said Lejo Ouwendyk, Managing Director. 

“I want to sincerely thank the entire Kennerlys team for their passion and hard work, and in particular congratulate Sue Peterson for her unwavering dedication to our clients and the Kennerlys business over the past 25 years.  Sue is the power engine behind our accounting services and much loved by clients and staff,” Mr. Ouwendyk added.

Kennerlys has built a reputation as a true client-focused firm and this dedication to delivering high-quality, personalised service is recognised with Kennerlys named “Best Accounting Firm (revenue less than $50M)” in the BRW 2013 Client Choice Awards. In addition, in 2012 Lejo Ouwendyk, was named by CPA Australia’s INTHEBLACK magazine in its inaugural 40 Young Business Leaders list. In 2011, Lejo attained a Business News 40 Under 40 award.

Several events are planned to celebrate Kennerlys 25th birthday, including an upcoming breakfast seminar, coffee voucher for all clients and recognition of service awards.
