Josh Richardson, Founder and Director
Raised in a business focused environment, small business management and financials have been a way of life for Growth IQ Founder and Director, Josh Richardson. With over a decade of experience as a Chartered Accountant, Josh has extensive experience working with large mid-tier firms, specialising in business consulting and compliance services.
After gaining corporate experience in business ventures of his own, Josh moved into business advisory roles with start up businesses and SMEs, finding his distinct knack for identifying the financials that make a business tick and providing financial clarity to clients that helped them see the big picture.
With a passionate drive for people, client relationships and continuous improvement, Josh’s vision is to enable his business partners to focus on what they do best and not get held back by the financial side of their business.
Away from work, Josh loves surfing and partaking in adventure sports. A young daughter, son and lovely wife occupy evenings and weekends, and they enjoy the beach as much as possible. Following many sports, he is a self-avowed Port Power tragic, and proud of it!
