Brett Schreiber

B Comm M Tax FCPA. JP (Qual)

With a background playing football under the guidance of some of Australia's best-known Rugby League coaches, Brett is no stranger to coaching.

Brett's "no bull…" attitude began in the Queensland Police Service, where his career included over seven years with the Fraud Squad and the National Crime Authority.

During this time, Brett examined many companies' internal and external processes and other issues concerning their operations and fraud matters.

After his time with the QPS, Brett entered the accountancy profession, following in the footsteps of his father, a respected businessman.

His career highlights include four years spent as a Senior Accountant with Bentleys Chartered Accountants. Working within their Corporate Restructuring Area, Brett was heavily involved in an extensive project restructuring five Hong Kong-based listed companies, which operated out of the Solomon Islands.

Since 1994, Brett has owned and operated Brett Schreiber and Associates. He has been actively assisting clients with tax and corporate compliance matters, business growth and expansion of operations.

Brett has worked with people from all walks of life, and learnt many lessons during his extensive career as sportsman, police officer and accountant.

Using his own extensive knowledge and experience, along with personal mentoring by a number of respected and successful people, Brett has broadened his company's services to include Business Coaching.

Brett firmly believes that coaches are pivotal for success, as demonstrated by his own successes as sportsman and businessman, and by his children's developing successes with Townsville Basketball and the Townsville Crocodiles.

With an attitude of GOALS, AMBITION and ACTION, Brett's present and ongoing success with his accountancy and business coaching is assured.
