John completed his tertiary education in Newcastle and moved to Crookwell in 1974. He established an accountancy practice in 1980 and practiced for many years in Crookwell and Goulburn, before eventually selling.

GREG SOUTHWELL B.Bus., C.A.GREG SOUTHWELL, MESAA

Greg originally joined Dawson & Partners in the former Sydney office during the 1990's and reversed the usual trend by subsequently 'migrating' to the Cootamundra practice.  Now firmly established in Cootamundra, Greg provides the technical leadership role within the firm.  He is at the forefront of knowledge in the area of superannuation and provides the clients of the firm with a resource generally only available from the "big end of town".

Greg's commitment to excellence is exemplified in him receiving the University Medal when studying at the University of Technology Sydney and being recognised in the top 25 candidates in Australia in the Institute of Chartered Accountants Professional Year.  Since that time, he has developed his specialisation in superannuation and investment issues by becoming a "CA – Financial Planning Specialist" and a SMSF Specialist Advisor™.  All Dawson & Partners' clients benefit greatly from his capacity to marry undoubted technical expertise with pragmatic solutions to their business, taxation, investment and retirement planning challenges.

Greg regularly has article published in the Wagga Wagga Daily Advertiser concerning financial issues.  A selection of these articles is available in the archives section of this website.

Greg is the director responsible for Financial Services and Superannuation Planning.  Please contact Greg gsouthwell@dawson.com.au to set up an appointment for a discussion on either or both these areas.
