Ralph Goldsworthy

MANAGING DIRECTOR / FINANCIAL PLANNER • MOBILE 0411 750 750

FPA Associate Member

Since his father-in-law and founder Bill Orr retired in 1991, Ralph has been the managing director of Goldsworthy. On his watch the firm has enjoyed a steady growth – even the GFC left the firm and its clients relatively unscathed, thanks to conservative investment strategies. Ralph is in it to help people: “Most people find it hard to live with money – either they’re too frugal or they’re too extravagant. I help clients make the most of what they have, no matter how much they have.”

Ralph has lived much of his life on a large cattle property but these days he’s content with a couple of acres:
“I enjoy gardening – it’s pure therapy – but with too much land it could soon turn into a chore. What we have
is just right.”

The following year she won a New Advisor of the Year award with AMP and at 23, she won an AMP Advice & Innovation award. Jennifer takes a personal approach to financial planning. She takes time to get to know you before tailoring a plan that will help you reach your goals without losing your sleep in the process. Seeing clients achieve what they want but never thought they could have is what she loves most about financial planning.

Jen’s love of good food and wine is balanced out by her fondness for fitness: netball, bootcamp, powerwalking…..
you name it, Jen is doing it. She is a keen traveller and loves to experience different cultures. Paris and Barcelona are her favourite cities.

Peter Donovan

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER • MOBILE 0414 347 287

Bachelor of Business – Griffith University
Diploma of Financial Planning – Deakin University
CFP FPA Australia • Commissioner for Declarations QLD

Peter has financial planning running through his veins. He climbed the corporate ladder all the way from the AMP mailroom to becoming AMP’s Australian Business Development Champion in 1999. In 2005 he joined Goldsworthy to get back to what he enjoys most…direct client contact. He takes great pride in helping people realise that they can achieve their goals and in showing them how.

The clarity and vision of his financial plans belies the fact that he had a glorious career in blind cricket. In fact, he was Australia’s test captain for 10 years and later became president of the World Blind Cricket Council.
Whatever he sets out to do, Peter is a high achiever.

Craig Miller

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER • MOBILE 0499 998 325

Before becoming part of Goldsworthy, Craig had his own successful financial planning business. “It was a family business – much like Goldsworthy – and I bought it from my dad in 2004.  In April 2016, I felt I wanted to be part of a bigger team and decided to join forces with Goldsworthy. I’ve known Ralph and Jen for years and their values are similar to mine: we care deeply about our clients and it makes us happy to see clients achieve their goals.”

Craig is a family man: “I like nothing better than spending time with family and seeing my children grow. My son Finley shares my interest in music. His band Winchester is quite successful, he writes and produces much of their music and they’ve been nominated for several Queensland Music Awards. I’m like a glorified taxi driver for them … but it’s still rewarding to see him follow his dreams.”

Colin Tierney

ACCREDITED MORTGAGE CONSULTANT • MOBILE 0447 939 300

With Colin we introduce a new area of expertise to the Goldsworthy portfolio: finance broking. Colin can obtain home loans, business loans and investment loans from a panel of 20+ lenders. With 15 years of experience as a finance broker and 20 years experience in the finance industry, few are better qualified to obtain the best possible loan for you. Colin fits perfectly into the Goldsworthy culture: “Goldsworthy is like one big family. We all get along but we work hard as well. I like that.”

Sport plays a large role in Colin’s life. “I used to play rugby league – like most boys back then – but now I’m a Brisbane Roar fan and I spend much of my spare time coordinating Logan Lightning’s female soccer teams. My two sons used to play soccer, now one of them swims and almost made it to the Olympics. He’s in the world top-50 in 200m breaststroke.”

Michele Stanton

RECEPTIONIST / ADMIN • PHONE 07 3421 3700

There’s a good chance Michele’s friendly voice will be the first you hear when you call Goldsworthy. A firm believer that a smile can be heard over the phone, she first started at Goldsworthy in 1992. After a few years off to raise her two boys, she worked for another financial planner before joining Goldsworthy again in 2012.

On her days off, Michele spends time walking with her girlfriends on the bayside or reading a good crime novel – preferably by James Patterson.
