Meet NSW Councillor George Bogdanovic FCA

We speak to NSW Council Member George Bogdanovic FCA about his work and what he has been up to recently

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand has regional councils across Australia and leadership committees around New Zealand to ensure members have their say in the organisation’s strategy and directions.

This month we interviewed George Bogdanovic FCA who has been on the NSW Council since 2017.

1. Please give us a brief introduction

I’m George Bogdanovic, one of your NSW Councillors and I am also the NSW Council’s representative on the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand Council. I’ve been on the NSW Council since 2017 and joined the CA ANZ Council this year.

2. Where are you based?

I’m based in Sydney’s North Shore and my office is in Chatswood which is thankfully not too far from where I live.

3. What is your area of interest?

Currently I specialise in forward-looking finance (forecasting, valuation, financing, decision-making) but I also have an interest in all areas of finance and relish the chance to work on commercial opportunities and projects.

4. How can other members work towards getting onto Council?

I would say the best thing to do is get involved in one of the many interest groups and get to know other CA ANZ members and staff. It’s an excellent way to raise your profile, get involved in working groups and engage more broadly with members. You will soon find a platform where you feel you can make a difference – and then nominate for NSW Council and rally your support!

The NSW Council Election period opens on Friday 17 September and closes on Friday 8 October 2021. For more information, please visit our NSW Regional Hub page.

I feel optimistic that we will emerge stronger as individuals and stronger with those that matter most to us. Tough times bring people together.

5. How have you been coping with the impact of the pandemic?

It has been challenging, working remotely, on-boarding new team members virtually, saying virtual goodbyes to team members who are retiring, and coping with the usual ups and downs of family life. However, I would say I feel optimistic that we will emerge stronger as individuals and stronger with those that matter most to us. Tough times bring people together.

6. Have you picked up a new skill or hobby during lockdown?

Yes, I took up handyman work, helping to exercise a different part of my brain to my finance work. I put it into practice by starting a small hobby handyman business. Now I have a group of loyal customers, who are mainly the elderly around my local neighbourhood who reach out for help. By doing this, it has made me feel connected to my local community, and equally I feel good about being able to help people.
