Brad Walker – Principal
Master of Taxation (UNSW)
Bachelor of Business (Accounting) (USQ)
Fellow of CPA Australia
Registered Tax Agent
Brad is entering his 42nd year in the taxation and accounting profession. He started his own practice some 33 years ago and it has evolved into a business focused practice catering for national, state and local clients.
The completion of his Masters, through the prestigious University of NSW, placed him in a very select few of equally academically qualified full time Principals in public practice in the Wide Bay area. This advanced academic standing together with his strong direct experience in public practice blends in well with the firm’s Senior Accountants to provide an advice network to B Walker & Co clients that adds value to their businesses.
He is a Fellow of Australia’s largest accounting body, CPA Australia, and he has contributed at a local Bundaberg branch level as President (two separate occasions), Vice President and a committee member.
Away from the practice, Brad has shown an active interest in sports. He had successful chairmanship roles in both basketball and rugby league when they commenced in their respective senior state league competitions. He continued to enjoy an active interest in sport through his long involvement with his children’s sports teams.
