David Goener | Partner
“ I have worked with David Goener for well over 10 years and have the highest regard for him. He is a skilled leader who knows the professional services landscape better than most. I have no doubt that David and the Beaton Capital team will continue to bring innovative ideas and insights to professional services firms across Australia and Asia – at a time when there are plenty of challenges for many firms.”
Drawing on a professional and financial services career spanning 35 years, David advises our clients in cost reduction, operational efficiency, strategic planning, partner performance management, capital structuring and risk management.
With extensive c-suite experience in Queensland’s largest professional services firms – BDO and McCullough Robertson – David has implemented cost reduction and risk management initiatives, driven savings from mergers, overseen interstate expansion and managed the opening of new offices.
David also had a long career with Commonwealth Bank, during which time he held senior positions in corporate finance, treasury and information technology. This background, coupled with deep management experience within professional services firms, sees David well placed to review the financial strength of firms for banks and other lenders.
