A message from the Partners

What a year 2020 has been for us all!  It started with bushfires and if that was as bad as it got, well that would have been bad enough!!  Covid-19 then threw the world a challenge unlike anything many of us has experienced in our lifetime.  If we never hear the terms social distancing, vertical consumption or home schooling ever again, we will be quite happy.    

Our team has been so proud and overwhelmed by the resilience of our clients and the local community during these “unprecedented times”.  The ability of our clients to act, adapt and keep going has been uplifting.  The kindness, concern and compassion that businesses showed to their employees and the community all while hurting themselves has been heart-warming.

Galpins sincerely thanks our team, who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes helping our clients through this stressful time of financial uncertainty.  Learning on the fly about ever-changing Government stimulus measures has been a challenge and they have all stepped up to deliver exceptional support to our clients.  Maintaining their dedication and commitment to the firm and our clients while facing personal challenges of caring for loved ones, working from home and home schooling has been exceptional.

To our clients we thank you for entrusting us to help you through this demanding year and for your support during this time.  We have been overwhelmed by clients who have reached out to us personally, showing kindness and understanding as well as the patience and kindness shown to our team.  We are so proud of our clients not only for being good business/financial operators but for being good people.

We wish all of you a wonderful Christmas and hope that you get some much-deserved time with family and friends.  We look forward to seeing you in 2021 and seeing what we can achieve together in the future.

Best Wishes, David Chant, David Sullivan, Jason, Renae & Daniel
