This is the start of a series where we showcase the talent that works behind the scenes at CTC accountants. This week we talk to senior partner Karen Lotter.
Hi Karen, thank you for talking to us!
How long have you lived in the Hastings/Port Macquarie area?
I moved back to the area in 2003. I grew up in Port Macquarie and moved to Sydney’s Northern Beaches and came back when our children were young to be with family.
What’s the one thing you love about living here?
Well, definitely the beautiful beaches and walks in the area. I love walking and joining friends for a paddle on my stand-up paddleboard, being near the ocean.
How long have you worked at CTC Accounting Services. What’s your role there?
I started at CTC in 2003 and then purchased the business with Ben Healey in 2008 and now with Nicholas Bown. So you could say I am the senior partner (mainly because I am the oldest !!).
How do you think CTC ads value to local business?
We have a very quick response time to client’s queries, in order for them to make informed financial decisions and trying to free up the owner’s time by automating processes and streamlining administrative processes.
How is CTC different from other accounting businesses in our region?
CTC is a smaller boutique firm specialising in business and SMSF (Self Managed Super Funds) for clients wanting a proactive accountant with family values and clear communication processes.
What do you think the 3 things are businesses should be planning for throughout 2021?
All businesses should have reviewed their budgets for the year, look at ways to diversifying their cash flow/income and have a 5-year strategy or goal in place
That’s great advice. How can people get in contact with CTC?
Just use our contact form (below) and make an appointment. We’d be very happy to speak with them.
Thank you Karen!
