Oliver is one of the best finance and accounting executives that I have worked with. He has the unique ability of being able to identify and understand trends in any set of financial accounts and then formulate and implement highly effective strategic and tactical responses if required. On top of this, his enthusiasm, commitment and work ethic is second to none.
“I’ve worked with Oliver a number of times recruiting staff across a range of levels- he is a passionate finance leader and driver, yet down to earth. You always know where you stand with Oliver, which is refreshing and I always enjoyed that.
I also found he had a keen eye for talent and is always willing to give pro-active people an opportunity to develop their skills and careers”
“Oliver has been a client of our financial modelling business both when he was an accountant at Wespine Industries Pty Ltd and subsequently when he was in the position of CFO at Murray Irrigation Ltd. We found Oliver to be very pro-active and engaged in the financial modelling projects we were building.
He has a high capability to perform complex business analysis and financial modelling tasks. He also has a strong appreciation of fundamental business processes and is a highly motivated person.”
“Having worked with Oliver in several capacities over the past few years, I have been impressed with his dedication, leadership and insight. I have witnessed Oliver successfully lead the restructure of an under-utilized, transaction focused finance team into a high performing, strategic focused finance team that is better placed to support the board and executives with making critical business decisions.
I would highly recommend Oliver to any enterprise who is seeking a hard-working, results driven finance executive who exhibits high integrity and great communication skills that foster strong professional relationships.”
“Oliver Kietzmann was with Murray Irrigation for 18 months and was the key driver in the development of our long-term financial modelling that enables us to model future scenarios which helps with business planning.
He restructured our finance department to provide better customer service and increased account transparency.”
“Oliver is a capable leader and manager of change. He sets clear direction, recognises gaps and opportunities, and organises his staff to deliver results.”
“As an audit manager, I worked closely with Oliver in his capacity as the CFO of our client.
After being appointed to that role, Oliver quickly identified a number of operational & strategic issues facing the business, as well as numerous control weaknesses which required significant attention.
Oliver implemented clear strategies and processes to address these issues, and was able to surround himself with the appropriate resources and technical expertise to ensure these changes were dealt with efficiently and are sustainable in the long-term.
Oliver’s personality and ability to relate to both board level and operational staff within the organization meant that he was very quickly able to form relationships and gain an understanding of the challenges facing the business. These skills also enabled Oliver to tailor management reporting and analytical modelling to support the board’s strategic agenda, and to really focus on implementing appropriate changes to the control environment to suit the company and the industry in which it operated.”
