what our associates say

“Paul, Gavin and their team have been an absolute pleasure to work with over the past couple of years. Their professionalism and experience has always shone through in every manner of communication.

Personally, I love working with them as a strategic partner because they truly have their client’s best interests at heart. Their desire to succeed and attitude to complex problem solving resonates in all their work. The firm strives to be a true business partner to their clients rather than a compliance factory.

At the same time, they know how to have fun and let their hair down, which is important to ensure that the team are motivated to help our mutual clients achieve their goals.”

“In my dealings with Paul, Paul and Gavin, they demonstrate business acumen, good accounting and business skills, seem to complement each other and the work is done in a seamless way. They make the effort to understand their clients and the businesses that they are dealing with.

The approach taken is uniformly sensible and done with a sense of humour when that is needed. They are prepared to put in the hard work and thought and pay attention to detail to deliver outcomes and solve difficulties. I have found the team at DFK Hirn Newey to be a great bunch of people to work with.”

“Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland (RMH SEQ) has been fortunate to work with ‘DFK Hirn Newey’ through both their staff and Senior Management Group for some years. This partnership has produced many events where this great company continually supports and fundraises for RMH SEQ at all levels from staff morning tea functions to corporate functions. The support from Senior Management really shows how committed this company is to assist in the community.

This assistance doesn’t stop at fundraising as DFK Hirn Newey Partner Paul Fiumara is an active contributor and a founding partner, of The RMH SEQ Business Leaders Group which seeks to ‘open doors’ and seek out valuable gifts and savings for the charity. Paul is a tireless worker and links other businesses for mutual RMH SEQ opportunities.  

Without the continual support from ‘DFK Hirn Newey’ many of our families with seriously ill children would just not be able to have a roof over their heads in times of needs. RMH SEQ is indebted to DFK Hirn Newey staff and management for their support and assistance in the community.”
