Associate Director – Audit
Associate Director Martin Sabanos brings not only a wealth of expert knowledge but also a vast, international spread of specialised experience as an External Auditor.
Having grown up in a small city in Eastern Slovakia, Presov, and studied in Bratislava at the University of Economics, Martin joined the Bishop Collins Audit team in 2019. Obtaining a Masters in Finance (with honors), with a major in banking, finance and investment at university, then going on to complete and receive his ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), his CA (Chartered Accountant) and CIA (Certified Internal Auditor), there is no doubting Martin’s exceptional level of skill and knowledge.
In his role as External Auditor at Bishop Collins, Martin can share his experience and skills on accounting standards. With experience including working at PwC (one of the big 4 firms) for 10 years, where he started as a junior and progressed to managerial level, and on projects such as working with the IFRS in China and Singapore, to working with teams and clients on external/internal audit assignments. This extensive experience in planning, executing, and reviewing to forming opinion and compiling independent reporting based on these findings is invaluable to our clients.
Enjoying your job is always made easier when you are passionate about what you do. With a love of obtaining insights into businesses and industries across different sectors, along with working with a variety of clients, as an external auditor, these are the opportunities Martin enjoys in his day to day role.
Describing himself as analytical, reliable and resilient Martin had big plans as a child to become a mere cosmonaut or astrophysicist. However, his analytical mind and love of mathematics and numbers chose his destiny in the accounting/audit vocation. Other than running 2 half marathons, 1 full marathon and climbing a volcano in Peru at an altitude above 5800m, Martin’s greatest achievement is his career.
Outside of the office, you can find Martin somewhere outdoors either hiking, running or playing tennis and enjoying time with his partner Angelica.
