Meet the EBAA Team

evan

“Trouble Shooter”. “Wing Man”. “Accounting Ninja”. “You make me feel 10 foot tall and bullet proof.”

These are all terms that Evan Bulmer’s clients use to describe him.

Evan consistently takes businesses that are struggling with cashflow and turns them around to achieve miraculous growth. (see case studies)

Evan’s secret?

It’s his mix of business acumen, accounting experience, strategy, creativity but most of all because he is extremely passionate about what he does and passionate about helping his clients?

Evan started his accounting business in 1996 because he believed he could make a real difference to the lives of the business owners he has a real passion for.

His interest in entrepreneurship started at the age of 11 when his dad was retrenched and bought his first business. From that day on the conversations around the dinner table all focused on business.

Evan has won numerous awards in the accounting industry including:

  • Fastest Growing Practitioner – 2008
  • Most Profitable Solo Practitioner – 2008
  • Rob Nixon MasterClass – 2010

What excites you about your work at EBAA?

The variety of work that I get to do – the fact that it is constantly changing. My major client has always been Evan since I started in this role. I put him in the right place at the right time with what he needs to do his job. If it all goes well, that is a good day.
