As COO, Charmaine is the lynchpin at the heart of our team, ensuring we have everything we need – technology, talent, systems, processes – to deliver the exceptional service and advice that made Capital Partners the FPA’s Professional Practice of the Year. But before she joined us in 2012, Charmaine hadn’t even considered bringing her career to a financial planning firm.
Prior to joining us, Charmaine was travelling through South Africa, where she met her husband – they were working with lions as wildlife conservation volunteers. Here in Australia, Charmaine also volunteered as a docent at Perth Zoo and at Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, helping injured and sick wildlife. And it’s this desire to make a difference that attracted Charmaine to Capital Partners.
As a self-professed perfectionist who loves working collaboratively, the idea of joining a high-performance professional practice doing life-changing work – and playing a pivotal role in enabling that team to grow – appealed to Charmaine. And that’s exactly what she does here at Capital Partners: she works across our business, ensuring our team is able to grow, develop and ultimately help more people. She makes it all possible.
