About Steve Ross
Steve’s consulting and professional career spans over 30 years and has included hands on assistance to private sector organisations in strategic and business planning, sales and marketing, financial management, human resource management including change management, leadership development and mentoring.
Professionally Steve undertook a Bachelor of Arts in Accounting at University of South Australia early in his career. Steve developed quickly into a variety of senior accounting roles which then developed into commercial, general management and ultimately CEO roles.
Steve’s skills and experience have been developed over many years working in a range of organisations that needed significant change to be successful. Steve played a key role within many organisations in building successful businesses that were previously not performing to their potential. This played a key part in developing a skillset and mindset that could be used to help organisations be successful. Not only did Steve find this very stimulating and challenging, it also gave him great satisfaction in helping businesses he worked in enjoy success.
At a point in time Steve decided to ply his skills to help many businesses as a consultant and over the past 15 years has done just that. Steve has worked as a consultant for the past 15 years joining Gibsons in 2006 as a senior consultant and then purchasing the business with his business partner Paul Dignam in 2010.
As a Strategic Business and Human Change Specialist consultant, Steve has helped
a range of Small to Medium Enterprises and Government Entities with issues and challenges and ultimately partnered them in a journey towards business improvement and excellence.
