Meet The Team
Our people come from a variety of professional backgrounds including investigations and corporate insolvency; with experience in the Big 4, forensic accounting, management, audit and consulting.
Bob leads Auxilium Partners in his capacity as a Voluntary Administrator, Liquidator and Supervisor. He is a Chartered Accountant and Registered Liquidator with 35 years’ experience in corporate insolvency, restructuring and corporate advisory.
He began his career as a corporate investigator with ASIC, investigating and prosecuting those involved in the WA Inc scandals of the 1980s. After ASIC, Bob spent 16 years with a global insolvency firm in Perth, rising to Directorship, before spending 3 years establishing a satellite firm in India. After returning to Perth, Bob worked as a Senior Consultant and Partner in several medium-sized insolvency firms. Keen to deliver better value to his clients and streamline the insolvency process, Bob joined forces with Paul in March 2015 to bring leaner and less bureaucratic professional services to his clients.

In WA, Paul joined Grant Thornton’s audit division and qualified as a Chartered Accountant. Following a brief stint as a financial accountant with a private business, Paul transitioned to forensic investigations with a mid-sized insolvency and forensic accounting firm where he worked closely with WA government agencies on complex and high-profile assignments.
