Chris Leahy

Chris Leahy’s calm and measured approach has earned him the respect of clients and colleagues alike, and with a career focused on business owner clients, Chris has a depth of industry knowledge that only comes with years of experience, enabling him to deliver valuable and proactive business advisory and taxation services.

After spending two years overseas as CFO of a privately owned greenfield agricultural development, Chris returned to Australia with hands on experience of what it is like to develop, run and ultimately divest a business of over 1,200 employees. He was keen to seek out a position which would enable him to continue to grow and develop as an accountant and advisor, as well as allowing him to work closely with private business owners. Happily for us, he found Fordham.

With a keen eye on the franchise industry, it is Chris’ unique blend of commercial and professional experience that allows him to quickly empathise with the issues that all his clients face, and to identify, develop and deliver meaningful and effectivesolutions and outcomes.

In addition, Chris contributes significantly to important thought leadership development within the firm, particularly in the areas of business and corporate finance – ultimately to the benefit of all of our clients.

Chris’ clients and colleagues have learned that they can come to Chris with their challenges … and their achievements!
