Kirsty Porteous

Partner, Newcastle and Hunter

Kirsty is a highly experienced accountant and strategic business planner who has worked with Boards, senior management,  business owners and leaders across a range of industries for almost 30 years. Understanding that the accounting business today is no longer merely about number crunching, Kirsty provides a holistic service that builds success and profitability based on a genuine understanding of a client’s aspirations.

Specialising in audit and business consulting, Kirsty has worked with a large range of industries including registered clubs, not for profit organisations, and a range of professional services businesses, including medical. Believing that driving business growth and profit often comes down to a great relationship between client and adviser, Kirsty has worked with clients on all facets of their business, systems and structures.

Kirsty is called upon for lots of different requests and enjoys working with clients through major decisions and transactions.  Sometimes queries from her clients are more general in nature, but she is the person who can pull it all together for them or source the expertise and advice they need.

A partner with DFK Crosbie since 2004, Kirsty has been with the firm for almost 30 years. She remains a partner of the firm following the merge of DFK Crosbie and Pitcher Partners Newcastle and Hunter to unite under the Pitcher Partners brand in late-2021.
