What our Clients Say About Us
CEO, Redback Conferencing
"I have had the opportunity to work with many people within Azure Group and with Kelly Morgan in particular. The entire organisation has made a significant positive impact on our business in many ways. We have worked in a number of areas from general compliance requirements, ongoing CFO services, corporate restructuring, tax planning to general business advice. In every instance, everyone has been extremely professional, knowledgeable and very helpful. Our business has grown rapidly over my time with Azure and they have always helped us to sustain our growth and plan for the future."
"Nothing ever falls into the “Too Hard” basket when Kelly turns her mind to it. From the Redback team to the Azure team – many thanks for all your efforts!"
Director, Modular Walls
“We engaged Azure group and Michael Derin in particular to come on board to help us expand and realize the potential we knew our products had. Michaels role as a business advisor, strategist and CFO has been invaluable to Modular Wall Systems doubling our turn over within his first year.
Not only have we experienced massive and rapid growth but we have built the systems to sustain the growth and make it profitable for the long term.
We have not finished yet and look forward to working with The Azure Group for many years to come with results that make a doubling in the first year look small.”
Director, CMC Lawyers
“On behalf of the Executive team at CMC Lawyers, I would like to thank and let you know how impressed we have been with Azure Group's Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Service provided at our organisation for the past 4 years.
We simply could not have experienced the growth we have without the systems, management reporting, strategic and tax guidance you have provided.
You have delivered a simplified corporate structure and put in place a management reporting and regular Board Meeting framework that has improved operations and reduced costs.
Your role in identifying and implementing upgrades to our legal software systems is now delivering business efficiences and improved financial information.
We look forward to continuing to work with Azure Group and would have no hesitation in recommending you to our business associates and clients”
"In our world things don't always happen, on time, in sequence, as planned or as expected. Michael and his team at Azure Group have been right by our side supporting us. They continually accept and, where required, rise to the challenges we present and it's a real comfort to an organisation like ours to have total confidence in our management accountants and corporate advisors"
Co Founder & CEO, Spreets
"Azure Group helped us in the early days of Spreets with the usual company stuff. They are great at that but where they really stepped up was during the deal negotiations with Yahoo!7. Michael and his team made themselves available at short notice over the busy Christmas period to work on models, compliance and generally meeting with the Yahoo!7 team to get them comfortable during the due diligence process. It's a rare talent for an accounting firm to be agile enough to move with a start up and credible enough to a big company."
Director, Bean Media/CEO Magazine
"We engaged the services of Azure Group in late 2012 after realising it was time to review the financial element of our systems and procedures here at Bean Media and The CEO Magazine.
Azure Group provided a highly collaborative service delivery within their team which included strategic CFO services, introducing improved and efficient accounting systems, as well as designing and rolling out effective tax strategies for the future. It has been a great relief to know that we can get on with running our successful business whilst knowing that our financials are in great hands and that we have strategies in place to deal with the highs and lows that are inevitable when running a business.
The CEO Magazine continues to expand at a rapid pace globally, and we are happy to have Azure Group as a key supply partner to assist in our exciting plans."
Director, Capital-E Marketing
"I was recently asked about what I believe are the most important first steps to take when setting up a small business. My response was to surround yourself with trusted advisors who can help you to navigate the start-up minefields. For anyone who asks me for my top tips, they always start with - talk to Azure."
Captain, Qantas Airlines
"I have known Norman for some twelve years and provide a testimonial in regard to his knowledge, work ethics, contacts and experience over those years.
He was first introduced to me in the capacity of "Financial advisor". In this regard he impressed me with his knowledge of taxation and superannuation. In particular, I was impressed how he was able to simplify complex issues and clearly explain his proposed strategies and then apply them directly to my particular circumstances.
He adopts a friendly, relaxed but professional attitude toward his clients. Throughout he has been prepared to listen to my concerns and acceptable level of risk before devising or advising any particular direction or approach. This is achieved through a thorough analysis of my situation, circumstances, expectations and risk appraisal.
As an example of his dedication to his clients, recently Norman made himself available at short notice during a weekend when an informed decision had to be made quickly. He not only performed beyond expectations, but went out of his way to ensure that all transpired smoothly and efficiently. Realising my situation, he offered to help in areas not normally associated with our dealings, including banking, insurance, legal advice and appraisals. This made for a very stress free experience.
His vast experience in all financial matters is greatly valued and appreciated and in my experience he always has the best interests of his clients in mind. He has always proven to be prompt and efficient and I cannot recommend him too highly. "
