Hello, I', Chris East and I'm the founder and director of East Partners.  I've been an accountant for near on 25 years as well as a financial adviser for the past 15 years and am absorbed in helping people put plans in place so they can achieve their dreams. The advantage that client from working with me is someone who has a broad and deep knowledge of how business works and the financial issues that arise from this.  My goal when I meet a client is to really understand them, the things they like (and don't like), what is working for them in their business and wht keeps them up at night.  I work best when I uncover a client who is passionate about what they do but are stock on how to really get their business to produce the results they are looking for. My formal qualifications are outlined below however both me and my team are continuously updating and refinding our skills and knowledge so that we can serve you in the best way possibe. When I'm not working with clients, I'm spending time with my wife and two boys, getting my hands dirty in the garden, avidly following the wonderful game of cricks and having fun in my capacity as a Cub Scout Leader with the Mt Lofty Scout Group.
