At the end of April, members of the Power Tynan team participated in the AustralianSuper Corporate Triathlon, Gold Coast event. This involved a 400m swim, followed by a 10km cycle and 4km run.
Congratulations to all who took part, and thank you to those who came along to support the Power Tynan crew!
Congratulations to our very own Dan Cuthbert for completing the full IRONMAN in Port Macquarie.
Dan finished with a time of 12 hours 20 mins (swim 1:10, bike 6:35, run 4:20).
Well done Dan, we are extremely proud of you!
After a few days off to recover, Dan returned to work to find the Stanthorpe team had decorated his office with 224 balloons - one for each kilometre he completed as part of the IRONMAN!

Australian Accounting Awards
Power Tynan has once again been recognised at the 2017 AccountantsDaily Australian Accounting Awards.
Power Tynan was awarded Graduate Program of the Year for the second year in a row, acknowledging the firm’s scholarship program run in conjunction with the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). Based on graduate development initiatives, this award considers how the firm develops and retains quality staff through a structured development program.
“The Power Tynan Scholarship Program offers final year high school graduates the opportunity to study a business or commerce degree part-time at USQ while working for our company on a full time basis. We offer between one and four scholarships each year, and have done so for the last ten years,” said CEO Paul Hilton.
“We are extremely proud of this program. In regional areas such as Toowoomba and Stanthorpe, it can be difficult to entice the younger generation to stay in town after graduating from high school; however we have retained all scholarship recipients upon graduating and, due to this program, are a significant employer within our district.”
Power Tynan were named as a finalist in three categories at the Australian Accounting Awards, being Graduate Program of the Year, Community Engagement Program of the Year and Young Accountant of the Year (Peter Rowe).
Members of the Power Tynan team attended the five-star gala dinner at The Sofitel Sydney Wentworth, where the winners of the fourth annual Australian Accounting Awards were announced to a crowd of 500 people.
Biggest Morning Tea
Power Tynan held a Biggest Morning Tea in support of the Cancer Council, raising $314.05. Our Bake Off Winners were Toni Jackson (Stanthorpe) and Peter Rowe (Toowoomba).
Pride of Workmanship Awards
Congratulations to Chloe Morello of our Stanthorpe office, who was recognised for her professionalism, hard work and dedication at the Stanthorpe Rotary's Pride of Workmanship Awards in June.
The Power Tynan team got together in Toowoomba for ‘PT Day’, to reset our focus for the new financial year and participate in some team building.
