Tax Accountants are People Too

MARK HANN, Director

Mark likes to keep fit. He does this by surfing whenever possible, running (slowly) and bike riding (erratically). Mark has been stained a deep purple and is a Dockers Member and Life Member of the Claremont Football Club. Don’t hold his football alliances against him, Mark is as friendly and genuine as they come and when he’s in work mode, offers a sharp intelligence and deep understanding of a huge range of Perth businesses and tax situations.

A Tax Accountant from the beginning, Mark also enjoys the challenge of applying his tax experience to the development of business improvement strategies.

Mark attended UWA, ECU and Deakin University (by correspondence). Mark holds a Graduate Diploma of Business in Professional Accounting, a Bachelor of Physical Education and a Graduate Diploma of Education. Mark is a Certified Practicing Accountant (CPA), Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) and is a member of the National Tax Accountants Association and Tax Institute of Australia. He also keeps abreast of various SME issues as a member of the Small Enterprise Network Panel (SEN) attached to the CCIWA, and is President of the Western Suburbs Business Association committee.

Mark was a teacher for four years before joining Howells Kidner (Tax Accountants) where he worked as an Accountant, Senior Accountant and eventually Partner (2000). In 2007 he reached the point where starting his own business was the best way to keep moving forward. Forming Tactica Partners allowed him to develop his own approach to delivering tax accounting and business consulting services.

DANIEL BREHENY, Director

Daniel is becoming a keen cyclist and embracing the lycra culture in a big way. Off the bike, Dan has a young daughter and if she leaves him with any spare time at all, you’re likely to find him on a squash court or golf course.

Dan has notched up almost 20 years’ experience in accounting and tax consulting in WA, providing services to clients in industries such as Building & Construction, Real Estate, Property Development, Architecture, Legal , Wholesale and Retail Trade, Hospitality and general consulting to name a few.

He is dedicated and approachable and will provide you with the highest level of care whilst listening to your business issues and sharing his experience and knowledge. He is also a full CPA member and Chartered Tax Advisor so is well placed to provide you with outstanding tax advice.

At Tactica Partners we find Dan hard working, professional and helpful and think you will too.

ALEX COLLIER, Tax Accountant

Alex has been working for Tactica since 2012.  He has had valuable experience working for small business’ and high net worth individuals.

Alex loves his sports, including, but not limited to, Soccer, Footy and Jive, and is always pushing himself to the next level. His passion for technology and his willingness to share his knowledge is a true asset in the accounting profession. 

He holds a Bachelor of Commerce with a double major in Accounting and Business Information Systems and is an Associate Member of CPA Australia.

Alex is proactive and intelligent.  He’s an excellent problem solver who is open to new ideas. Alex can be regularly found improving internal systems and applies the same constant drive for improvements when he’s working with clients.

He is exactly the type of creative accountant who defines what we stand for at Tactica Partners.

TONI BRUNSGARD, Bookkeeper

Toni is full of life and happiness and a real asset to team Tactica. In her other life Toni loves running to keep fit (she’s fast!), the sun and the beach and helping her two children navigate through their teenage years.

Toni is an expert in MYOB and other reporting systems. As well as handling our client’s reporting needs, she also takes on data management projects as detailed on the Bookkeeping page.

Having a bookkeeper with Toni’s level of energy and enthusiasm is something we, and our clients, value like gold and diamonds.

HELEN BUNFORD, Office Manager and Personal Assistant

Tactica have been lucky enough to have Helen helping us run the business and keep Mark organised and efficient since the very beginning. Staff with that level of loyalty and knowledge of the business and our clients are rare gems indeed and we are very grateful to have Helen with us.

When not helping Tactica run like a well oiled machine, Helen is a fanatical surf life saving club member on the northern beaches and loves nothing more than throwing herself and her family into competitions, fundraisers, training and social events.

Chances are, if you have a question, Helen will have an answer for you.

Thanks Helen!

Sally takes lawn bowls very seriously. In fact, she’s keen on all things sport including AFL and NBA as well as fashion and food. At Tactica, Sally works closely with Daniel as his dedicated PA.  She looks after our social media presence and manages our charitable work.

Sally has been working for boutique accounting firms as a receptionist, office administrator and personal assistant since 2006.  She’s one of those rare people who manages to be both creative and efficient, which Tactica has benefitted from since 2011.
