Retirement of Leah Smallman

After a career spanning over 20 years, Leah Smallman – Tax and Advisory Principal, has retired from Morrows and public practice.


Please see below Leah’s message on her retirement.


“During recent times, particularly around COVID-19, I have had many discussions with clients about their priorities in relation to their business, their future and more importantly, their personal lives.


My partner Shane and I have been on a similar journey and we have decided to make a wholesale life change.  We are selling up and moving to Paynesville in East Gippsland to establish a slower pace of life.   You may say I am too young to retire, which is correct, so although I am leaving the accounting profession, I am not retiring.   I have taken a role in Finance for a well-established disability services provider in Bairnsdale called Noweyung and am looking forward to the new challenges this will bring.


I would like to take this time to personally thank you for allowing myself and the Morrows team to manage your affairs.  I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you over years and am confident that the Morrows Teams will continue to support you in to the future.


Over the last number of weeks there has been detailed planning of your file handover to my fellow Principal, Paul Baxter.  I have worked with Paul for the last 20 years. He clearly understands the way I interact with my clients and therefore I am sure you will experience a smooth transition.  Paul will be working with the team who have always supported me to deliver the service you expect.


You are in good hands and I wish you and your family all the best for the future.  Thanks and stay safe.”


Leah’s last day at Morrows was Friday 21st August 2020.  Our best wishes go with Leah and Shane as they relocate to Paynesville. On behalf of everyone at Morrows we would like to thank Leah for her years of hard work and wish Leah and Shane the very best for the future.


Please contact your Morrows Advisor should you have any concerns whatsoever.
