Matt Neibling Acis

What do you do when a career in dentistry just isn’t floating your boat? You harness your inner entrepreneur and co-found Acis.

Matt takes the business of business structures very seriously. As a CEO, he understands risk and understands why getting it right every time isn’t a luxury – it’s a given.

His main day-to-day role is stress-relief:
“I reduce risk for professional advisers and save them both time and worry by ensuring they get the results their clients need, when they’re needed.”

Matt has led the Acis team since 1988 and, when he’s not building it as the Alpha dog of the industry, you can find him with his family – he may even be playing guitar badly on one of the Sunshine Coast’s gorgeous beaches.

Emily Pritchard Acis

When Emily says she thrives on helping Acis clients solve complex challenges, she’s not exaggerating. In fact, she’s never happier than when she’s guided a client to a successful solution that they just didn’t think possible.

Heading up our Legal Services team, Emily takes pride in working closely with her clients to build positive, trusted relationships. She applies expert scrutiny to the intricacies of each document and intelligently analyses available options to equip her clients with the optimal way forward. Her exceptional legal brain, open and personable communication style and in-depth product knowledge combine to make her a highly respected leader in her field.

A former analyst with a global investment bank in Japan, Emily has always been a high achiever who’s forever on-the-go. Add three children into the mix and having time to relax doesn’t seem to happen too often. When she does get to unwind, she heads for her favourite beach for the day, followed by a well-chosen glass of red on her back deck.

Mick Neilson

Mick first joined Acis at the age of 18 and, apart from a few stints away travelling, he’s been an integral part of our team ever since. As Client Relationship Director, his multi-faceted role includes developing and converting new business opportunities, promoting the benefits of our services, and ensuring that every Acis client receives consistently excellent service. A central focus of his role is making sure all clients are able to access the full benefits of our solutions.

With a decade spent in the Legal Services team, Mick has amassed an in-depth knowledge of Acis products and legal documents. This practical experience and technical understanding prove invaluable in his current position. He’s able to respond directly to new and existing client enquiries with efficiency and accuracy, providing an exceptional level of technical assistance.

Mick’s friendly, down-to-earth manner sees him build strong and positive relationships with Acis clients and industry contacts. He truly enjoys getting to know his clients and their firms, and his hands-on and personal approach instils confidence and trust.

Outside of work, when he’s not wrangling his young family, you’ll find Mick fishing, surfing or playing what he terms ‘Old Man Cricket’ with a team of mates.

Peter Johnson Acis

Widely acknowledged as a leader in his field, Peter has focussed on the superannuation sector for most of his 30-year career.

Peter’s role is to provide high level SMSF services to Acis clients, with a focus on reducing the risk of non-compliance in the establishment and operation of SMSFs.

A good day for him is when he and the team are able to show a client how to achieve something they thought may not be possible.

It surprised us to learn that Peter has a sideline interest as a qualified snake catcher. He says it’s a hobby he’s always loved, and he holds a unique status as the only non-veterinary contributor to the NSW National Parks and Wildlife’s report on the hygiene protocols for the care of captive snakes. By comparison, corralling any SMSF enquiries should be a walk in the park.

Chris Twible Acis

Chris has over 15 years’ experience with Big Four and service-based businesses. In his role as Chief Financial Officer, Chris steers the overall financial and commercial strategic direction of Acis. He works closely with our senior leadership team and supports everyone at Acis to deliver on our client promise.

A self-confessed spreadsheet nerd with an exceptional eye for detail, Chris has a highly analytical mind and always has an eye on the future.

Outside of work, Chris loves spending time with his young daughter (just not if it’s on a plane!). He’s an avid sports fan and once had dreams of following his father’s footsteps and becoming a professional cricketer. It might sound harsh, but we’re kind of glad that didn’t work out!

Daniel Beach Acis

To say that Daniel lives and breathes technology is an understatement. He has a wealth of experience in the software development industry and has key strengths in business technology planning and software project management.

As Chief Technology Officer, Daniel manages the overarching technology strategy for Acis and the continual development of software to deliver optimal solutions for our clients. Never hampered by existing software limitations, Daniel sees his role as translating specific business needs into advantageous technological outcomes.

Daniel’s interests outside of tech include going to musicals and watching ice hockey. He secretly hopes that one day someone will release a musical about ice hockey. Keep hoping, Daniel!

Clients often comment that Acis seems like a family, and this is no truer than in the case of Belinda.

Belinda has been with Acis since the mid-90s and now regards many of her clients as friends, always finding time for a catch up when they call in with queries.

She has worked across most of the Acis business, and with client satisfaction being paramount for Belinda, she now sits in the Legal and Client Services Team.

Rumour has it that she is also pretty serious about cuisine, and finds time to mix her loves of travel, wine and food with friends and family as often as possible. Do we get an invite, Belinda?

James Creevy Acis

The fact that James can solve a Rubik’s Cube in under 11 seconds (with his eyes closed!) says a lot about his fastidious nature.

At Acis, James is focussed on making sure trusts and superannuation funds are aligned with current legislation, as well as ensuring they’re operating to deliver the greatest benefit to his clients. Formerly with CST Documents, James has been a part of the Acis crew since early 2018.

Out of office hours, James’ scrupulous personality is equally in force. If he’s not doing strenuous exercise he’s working on disproving Wile’s proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem (yeah, we don’t know what that is either!).

Stephen’s super power is his ability to explain to clients how structures and restructures work in the real world. His expertise spans several decades in commercial law, from London to Australia, and from large law firms to boutique practice and inhouse legal counsel.

Stephen’s goal is to make it simple for clients to understand the process of establishing structures, what Acis does and what they need to do. He takes the complexity of legislation and case law around structures and puts it in everyday language for clients to easily understand.

We’re still waiting for an invitation to Stephen’s for dinner. He’s a keen foodie and cook, but so far has been reluctant to invite the motley Acis crew to sample his gourmet offerings.

Dean Saxvik Acis

A former Settlement Clerk in the conveyancing field, Dean is responsible for undertaking discretionary and unit trust amendments at Acis, and also handles any trust-related client enquiries.

Dean loves working in the tight-knit Acis Legal Services team and enjoys collaborating closely with our highly experienced lawyers. He thrives under pressure and always puts his hand up for the really challenging work. In fact, he’s never happier than when solving the trickiest client question or request.

The one challenge he wasn’t able to meet was learning Mandarin at university. Sadly, this complicated language proved to be beyond even Dean, but we won’t hold that against him.

On weekends, his favourite pastime is playing a round of golf with mates for a schooner and bragging rights.

Helgard de Lange Acis

A lifetime in the accounting industry seemed to have led naturally to Acis when Helgard joined the team as Relationship Manager. Helgard’s wealth of experience has seen him in roles across private practice, corporate accounting and e-commerce. He now focusses all that expertise on supporting Acis clients in building the value of their businesses and, in turn, the value of their client relationships.

Using his knowledge of the professional wealth management industry, Helgard is forging strong ties with Acis clients and ensuring they are making the most of our market-leading technology. His skills as an ambidextrous golfer will surely come in handy as he juggles Acis’ diverse client base.

With two young kids at home, Helgard keeps himself busy but he tells us he can “really” run 100 metres in 11 seconds *cough Mick*, so he has the energy to keep going.

Werner Combrinck Acis

Working out new ways for clients to unlock revenues is literally what gets Werner out of bed each day! Having previously held roles at Xero and top-tier accounting firms, Werner brings a broad range of skills and experience to his BD role at Acis.

Werner’s focus is guiding clients through the processes surrounding structures and restructures, to help them secure the outcomes they’re looking for. A natural problem solver, Werner’s not afraid to ask questions and dig deeper to uncover how he can continually add value to Acis clients.  

When time allows between work and spending time with his two sons, Werner heads straight for the golf course to sharpen his swing. He’s not disclosing his handicap, but rumour has it that the pro golf tour has come courting.

Brooke Hansen Acis

Brooke has a pivotal role in the Acis Sales & Marketing team. She manages all aspects of the marketing and communication programme, and is the linchpin for our events, sponsorships and campaigns. A stickler for delivering a positive brand experience across all touchpoints, she works hard to ensure Acis clients understand everything they need to know about our products and services.

Prior to joining Acis, Brooke worked in marketing and event management roles for Australia’s highest awarded coffee roaster and a corporate hospitality group where she learned the importance of attention to detail and a ‘can-do’ attitude.

She also happens to be a first-class barista, a keen golfer and she loves a day out at the races. And here’s a fun fact: just like her famous namesake, Brooke also used to be a competitive swimmer.
