Quinn Transport - full steam ahead for local family business
Quinn Transport began with one truck in 1968.
Growing steadily over the years to now having thirty road trains and thirty sub contractors plus a number of farming interests, the Quinn family wanted someone who could help them to increase their business and financial success.
Having worked with Andrew Mattner at a previous firm, Rodney knew that no one knew his businesses like Andrew. Moving with Andrew to Hattam McCarthy Reeves was an obvious and clear decision.
While there were many business issues and processes that needed to be addressed, ensuring the family’s business would continue for future generations was important to Rodney and his wife, Mandy.
With their son, Scott working in the business and three daughters pursuing their own careers, Rodney and his wife worked with Andrew on succession planning, ensuring the family and the business would be taken care of well in to the future.
Andrew provides Rodney and his wife Mandy with peace of mind, comfort and security in having a trusted advisor who is part of their business, who genuinely cares about their future.
Knowing Andrew’s interest goes beyond the number crunching is important to Rodney and Mandy. Andrew is a part of every aspect of the Quinn family’s second-generation business operations.
To ensure systems are being implemented correctly across all levels of the business, Andrew will travel to Port Lincoln and Cleve to meet with staff to discuss new processes and procedures. It is his committed, thorough and hands on approach that is highly valued by Rodney and Mandy.
Andrew’s knowledge and ability has helped identify other issues which needed to be addressed including estate and tax planning, strategic planning, Superannuation, and the creation of governance structures to ensure business plans stay on track to achieve targets.
Rodney and Mandy know that having Andrew on board allows them to focus on other elements of the business, ensuring a strong and robust future for the business and their family

We have worked with Andrew for twelve years and wouldn’t think of going anywhere else. Andrew has a genuine interest in our family business and goes above and beyond to help us.
The biggest thing that Andrew provides us with is peace of mind. Knowing that Andrew has our business covered is something that means the world to us.
His hands on and genuine approach really matters to us. We know our business is always a priority. It is the extra things Andrew does that make a difference. If Andrew notices we have experienced some bad weather, he’ll give us a call to check on how things are going with the farm and if the weather will affect harvest, which, to us, really illustrates his commitment and passion.
Andrew is more than just our accountant; he’s our business advisor, strategist, planner and friend.
I would be happy recommending Andrew to anyone. I know we’ll be with him for many years to come.
