My Journey at Kennerlys
After a successful career including tenures with Arthur Andersen and Sothertons, and later establishing his own accountancy firm, Lejo took the helm of Kennerlys in 2006 and quickly expanded its services. His professionalism, dedication to clients, appreciation of his staff and tireless energy has seen him develop Kennerlys into a highly-respected and successful WA business.
Lejo’s success has been acknowledged with many awards and recognitions, including Kennerlys being named Best Accountancy Firm in its category in the prestigious BRW 2013 Client Choice Awards – testament to his world-class client service. He was also one of just three WA CPA IN THE BLACK 40 Young Business Leaders for 2012. Additionally Lejo was a WA Business News 40under40 award winner in 2011 and Kennerlys was a finalist in the 2012 Telstra Business Awards.
Drawing on his own experience, proven track record and ability to find solutions for many business challenges, Lejo has become a trusted advisor, sharing his thoughts and inspiring the business community by regularly speaking at industry events and seminars.
