Community commitment underpins PKF Partnership

A shared commitment to the community is the driving force behind the nib Newcastle Knights new partnership with leading Australian multi-disciplinary accounting and advisory firm PKF Sydney and Newcastle.

Founded as Lawler Partners in Newcastle in 1977, PKF is today one of the pre-eminent firms in the Hunter Region.

With a Newcastle-based team of specialists and deep local knowledge and experience, the Knights partnership is the latest example of PKF’s absolute commitment to the Newcastle community,

“We are proud to be partnering with the Knights for the 2023 season,” Bob Bell, Managing Director PKF Sydney and Newcastle said.

"Our connection to Newcastle goes back to 1977 and this partnership is a representation of our ongoing commitment to the local community and Hunter region.

“We wish the Knights all the very best for the season ahead.”

In praising PKF’s commitment to Newcastle and the Hunter, nib Newcastle Knights and Wests Group Australia Chief Executive Officer says the new partnership is a further example of an organisation that is only in business to make the community stronger.

“As a Club, we can learn a lot from the approach taken by PKF over the long term,” Mr. Gardner said.

“We have a deep and enduring connection to our community and we exist to give back to the people who give to us – and that is exactly what PKF does in business and in life.

“I thank Bob and Andrew and the entire PKF team for the trust and endorsement that is inherent in linking their brand to ours.

“We are thrilled to be in partnership and we are looking forward to working with PKF this year and long into the future.”

PKF’s partnership with the Knights represents an expansion of its portfolio and joins well-established grassroots partnerships with the likes of the annual Breast Care Breakfast for Hunter Nurses, Hunter Rugby Union and Merewether Carlton Rugby Union Club.

“A pillar of PKF is community and giving back in a meaningful way, and it means much more than words,” Andrew Beattie, Partner at PKF Sydney and Newcastle said.

“Our firm started over 45 years ago as a humble local accounting business here in Newcastle and those humble beginnings and a strong tie to the community continue to drive us today.

“The Newcastle Knights are so much more than a rugby league team, they reach and inspire the whole Newcastle region. And our firm has been proud to be connected to the Knights, in one way or another, since their inception.

“We are proud that our two brands will be shoulder to shoulder once again and giving back to this wonderful, loyal and passionate Newcastle community.”
