Paul Jerman, Director, Rail Operations Safety & Safeworking
Seeing huge niche in the industry and an opportunity to provide a service that wasn’t in the market, Paul Jerman began Rail Operations Safety & Safeworking (ROSS) with the intention of always being a “one man show”.
Experiencing strong and significant growth since the business began, ROSS grew from a one-person business to a team of four full time and two casual staff members in its first 12 months of operation.
As a recognised service provider throughout the rail industry, ROSS are rail and transport specialists providing an extensive range of rail operations, safety, transport and logistics services.
With a profile that is synonymous with success, value for money, honesty and partner relationships, ROSS Director, Paul Jerman wanted to find an accounting partner who shared these values and could help to continue the business’s success. Additionally, Paul wanted an accountant who could provide insight into his business in a clear and easy-to-understand way without the jargon.
Having heard about Hattam McCarthy Reeves through other small business owners, Paul decided to meet with them.
Geoff helped Paul structure appropriate business systems, such as the highly effective software, Xero which helps Paul understand what is happening in his business in an easy to understand, straightforward manner. Through Xero, Paul can easily indentify the business’s financial position allowing him to make well-informed business decisions.
HMcR has been with the business since its inception. Geoff is the financial manager of the business offering advice that goes far beyond standard accounting. This includes helping with the planned future expansion of the business through the development and review of detailed profit and cash flow budgets.
Knowing the business is fully supported by the team at HMcR, Paul has time to focus on the other aspects of the business, such as generating new business and management of new projects.
With significant future growth expected, Paul is secure in knowing that HMcR will be by his side on the business’s journey, celebrating in their successes and sharing their knowledge to help ROSS maintain its position of being a leader in the field of rail operations, safety and transport.
“Working with Geoff and the team at Hattam McCarthy Reeves has proven to be highly beneficial to our business. HMcR go above and beyond what is expected of them, they have a distinct interest in my business. With Hattam McCarthy Reeves, there is no “spin”, their relaxed and straightforward approach makes it easy for me to understand what is happening in my business. HMcR are no longer a provider of services to our business, but part of our team.”
