Leading Fintech, GBST, today announced it has appointed Elly Grace as its new Client Relationship Manager and Tax SME, further accelerating the development and distribution of the company’s full range of innovative tax solutions.
Elly joins GBST in the next stage of her successful career, during which she has gained significant experience as a tax technical SME, formerly in tax advisory with KPMG, in product development, analysis and distribution with NAB, and most recently as a user of tax data with AustralianSuper.
A Chartered Accountant with degrees in Law and Commerce and experience working in professional services, custody, commerce and superannuation, Elly’s diverse experience will add valuable expertise to the work already being undertaken by the GBST Tax Solutions team and enable her to provide real benefits to GBST’s clients. “I have always loved technology and I am a bit of tech buff, but the greatest reward is translating that passion into new ways of doing things that help organisations gain efficiencies and savings and produce financial benefits for the end investor, be that institutional clients or superannuation fund members,” Elly said.
“The best part of all my roles has been establishing trust with clients, working with them to design solutions that truly make a difference. Bringing this together in the tax space and working with top development teams where the tech expertise is the best in the country to turn those solutions into reality is the reason I have joined GBST.”
GBST Head of Asia Pacific, Denis Orrock, said Elly was bringing considerable skills to the organisation: “Elly was a huge advocate of GBST’s Tax Analyser capabilities whilst at NAB, and worked closely with GBST Business Solutions Executive, Kathy Taylor-Hoffman showcasing it to clients.
Her experience in working in every link of the tax and superannuation data chain, from the custodian, where the data is sourced, to the client and advisor where the data is used and signed off, brings not only technical and practical expertise, but a true client lens to GBST’s tax solutions. Elly is excited by the scope for innovation in the tax space, and we are delighted to welcome her to the GBST team.”
