Help me support kids in need

I am a Partner in KPMG’s Deals Tax and Legal team specialising in corporate tax and mergers and acquisitions. I am privileged to advise the largest Australian and foreign investors to ensure their tax affairs meet the highest standards of professionalism and compliance. In 2018, I was named Australian Chartered Tax Adviser of the Year by the Taxation Institute of Australia. 

I am an avid road cyclist. I ride for the significant mental and physical health benefits it provides and am completing the Chain Reaction Challenge with my colleagues, Stephanie Schaefer and Paul Mayson (see above).

One of my motivations to complete the Chain Reaction Challenge is the loss of my son in 2015 to illness associated with autism and epilepsy.

Gus received outstanding love and care from the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne and my family has completed significant fundraising for that organisation. 

I am motivated to raise money for Children’s charities given the immense impact they have on the quality of life of those in their care.


Chain Reaction is the Ultimate Corporate Bike Challenge that raises money for sick children by challenging senior executives who have a passion for cycling and an awareness of their corporate social responsibilities, to ride a 1,000 plus kilometre course in 7 days.

Help me support kids in need.

Thank you to my donors

Best of Luck Stephen!
