Dale-Norman-BDR-Accountants-Mandurah-v3Dale Norman, CA, Director:

Growing up surrounded by his parents’ home-based business gave him a passion for small business and an intimate knowledge of the challenges their owners face.

Dale graduated from Curtin University of Technology with a Bachelor of Commerce in 1997 before completing his Chartered Accounting qualification in 2000. After a decade in Perth, New York and London doing tax consulting, auditing, professional, commercial and management accounting he returned home to enjoy life with his wife and two children, who remain his number-one passion.

“Like everyone at BDR, I specialise in tax compliance and regulatory accounting.  However I have a very broad background which has honed my skills in business systems development, management accounting and information analysis,” Dale said.

“I really enjoy giving business advice that helps people understand and grow their business, it’s a great journey.”


Matt Brabazon, CPA, Director:

Matt Brabazon has gained a lot of accounting experience since graduating from Murdoch University with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1999.

Matt worked in public practice with a West Perth firm for four-and-a-half years before joining BDR in 2004 and becoming a director in 2010.

Today his extensive knowledge of the Australian accounting and taxation system is helping BDR’s clients take their business to new heights.

“People think accountancy is all about dollars and cents and recording transactions, but it’s more than that – it’s about developing relationships and working with people to ensure their business succeeds, and that’s what I enjoy about it,” Matt said.

Matt is happily married with two sons, loves his golf and enjoys watching AFL and cricket.

Dave-Cornwall-BDR-Accountants-Mandurah-v3Dave Cornwall, Director:  

David Cornwall’s wide-range of clients have been benefitting from his professional advice in commerce and taxation for over 30 years.

“I like working closely with people to make sure they’re achieving the best results from their businesses,” David said.

“It’s very important that businesses are structured correctly and that business owners have a successful exit strategy for selling their business when the time’s right.”

He’s been an accountant at BDR since 1988 and was admitted as a director in 2003.

But it’s not all work for David. He relishes the salty tang of the ocean. Come the weekend you’ll probably find him at the beach with his wife and two kids surfing, fishing or donning the scuba gear and plunging into the briny deep.
