Meet The Team

Therese Turnbull

Therese has been with the team for 5 years and is a whizz when it comes to working with corporate entities, specialist business operations and tax structures. Therese is Jacinta’s right hand and she makes even the most complex of tasks look easy.

When Therese is not crunching the numbers, she juggles two kids, a husband and three happy hounds. And when she does get a rare bit of free time she enjoys having a few laughs with family and friends, and swimming laps at the pool.

Elaine Yanga
Executive Assistant

Elaine holds a Bachelor of Business Administration and she comes to us after several years in the banking sector. Elaine loves a good laugh but even more notable is her shoe and lipstick addiction – and she is also crazy about anything Ed Sheeran. Her favourite pastime outside of work involves dinner and a good horror flick – and her latest spooky fav is The Quiet Place.

Jacinta O’Connell

Jacinta has nearly three decades of professional and commercial accounting experience in the music industry – dating back very early in her career when she worked with Aussie rock legends The Angels, The Choirboys, Angry Anderson, Ratcat and Powderfinger.

Apart from being one of Australia’s leading music industry tax experts, Jacinta is also a strategist and business growth development specialist with a wealth of expertise in music, media and entertainment. Jacinta’s approach is to work collaboratively with her clients as an accountant, a taxation expert, a business manager, or simply as a peer and mentor.

Jacinta is well aware that it’s not an easy gig earning a living as a full-time musician – her priority is to provide clients with both a caring and first-rate service, going above and beyond to ‘ease the way’ as much as possible.

With current clients including Gang of Youths, Dean Lewis, PNAU and Matt Corby, Jacinta balances her accounting brain and her love of music with a busy family life. She also combines her love of dogs while giving back to the community with an active volunteer role in Australian Working Dog Rescue.

Kent O’Connell

When Kent is not fighting fires (in his other job as a NSW ‘firey’), he spends time in the office helping out with general accounting and keeping the paperwork ticking over.

Kent is a bit of an all-rounder – he loves to renovate, garden, he’s a whizz on the BBQ and can whip up a mean batch of spag bol. He loves the music of the late great David Bowie as well as many of our clients, so we know he has great taste in music too. Jacinta reckons Kent is pretty close to the #theperfecthusband. We are inclined to agree.

Ran Yutuc
Assistant Accountant

Ran has previously worked for Accenture and ANZ and loves a numbers challenge, which makes him perfect for our team.

He is a heavy metal/hard rock fanatic and his playlist includes anything ACDC, Queen, Metallica and Nirvana. Outside of work, Ran loves the outdoors, especially pushing the pedals on his bike.

Annette Heathwood

Annette has an MBA and a long history working in the Government sector. She loves to relax with the animals on her farm in country NSW – where she also spends time writing our corporate comms and anything else we happen to send her way. Annette has named her 4 chickens Fernando, Mamma Mia, Waterloo and Dancing Queen – so it stands to reason that her favourite band is The Spice Girls.
