Registered Company Auditor

David McClelland

Starting out as a trainee at “Ernst & Young” in 1979 it wasn’t long before David had graduated from the University of NSW, with a triple major in Finance, Accounting & Systems, and by 1984 going on to become a qualified Chartered Accountant.

David’s passion for Accounting led him to his specialisation in Audit & Advisory. In particular Not for Profit, Aged, Disability and Family Services, however David’s prior experience as a General Manager and Manager of two licensed clubs, has given him industry specialisation in Audit and Advisory of Registered Clubs as well. Add to this his commercial accounting roles as Financial Accountant and Chief Financial Controller, David is a highly skilled professional and a valuable member of the Bishop Collins Team.

Aside from his professionalism David enjoys playing golf off a handicap of 4 most weekends and also has a love of classic cars – of which he owns and takes pride in a ‘61 Chevrolet Impala bubbletop and a ‘56 Ford Thunderbird.
