Queensland Ride 2018

John is Director and CEO of Brisbane based boutique wealth management and accounting firm, MGD Wealth. MGD provides integrated advice across tax, corporate finance, investment management, superannuation, financial planning as well as risk and succession. Although John has only been a MAMIL for a few years, he has quickly developed a passion for early morning starts and regular rides each week. “The opportunity to combine my passion for cycling and my commitment to raising funds for great causes, such as aeiou Foundation and Ronald McDonald House is simply too good to pass up.” Having completed last year's ride from Sydney to Brisbane, John is looking forward to the challenge of completing this year's course around the south island of New Zealand and in particular to conquering (or at least not be defeated by) the challenging hills along the way.
