TRENT HILLIER

Bookkeeping

What do you get when you mix IT and bookkeeping? This guy.

After 15 years in the land of troubleshooting IT issues, Trent threw in the towel as ‘the IT guy’ to be a stay at home Dad and during nap times retrained as a bookkeeper. Some would say it was a result of being married to a chartered accountant, others would say that both professions require an analytical and logical mind so the change was obvious.

Accountant

JACQUES ZAKHEM

Bookkeeping

My interest and exposure to commerce began from a young age, as my parents were hands-on small business owners. This led me to study business, and I attained a bachelor’s degree with majors in accounting and finance. I chose to join the family group soon after and over about fifteen years, I came to know more about the real-world opportunities and challenges faced by small business owners – the tough stuff that is hard to pick up from the books alone. I know that as a business owner, you need people you can rely on and less worries on your mind. This is why, as a bookkeeper at Generate, it’s my daily goal to provide you with a professional and reliable bookkeeping service, as I know what it means to have one less thing to worry about, and one more person in your corner, providing you with the support you need.
