Has the first part of the year flown by for you? It certainly feels that way for me.

As most of you know, Kennerlys received devastating news before Christmas that we lost our beloved Sue Petersen after complications during her cancer treatment.

Thankyou all for your heartfelt words and condolences. Sue has left an incredible legacy and her hard-working, no-fuss, down-to-earth values will stay with our team and be reflected in everything we do for our clients such as yourselves and your families. 

It’s now our honour to carry on Sue’s legacy as we continue to give our clients the very best of Kennerlys and make Sue proud. We all know, Sue wouldn’t want us to miss a beat.

I’m always thinking of ways to improve Kennerlys and the services we offer our clients, but I also appreciate taking some time out to sit down and meet with clients and staff over a coffee after the difficult time we have all been through.

You might have read my blogs in the past 18 months about my “10,000 coffees” goal. As part of my 10 year plan to develop Kennerlys into an integrated, go-to firm for financial planning, advisory, lending, accounting and tax services — while remaining highly in-tune with its clients’ evolving needs — I set a goal to connect with current and prospective clients, staff, business partners and community and industry peers and leaders over the course of 10,000 coffees. I reamin true to this goal and love helping clients plan and achieve their business and personal wealth goals and help them find solutions to challenges. So let’s get together soon for a chat over coffee and see how Kennerlys can be your go-to team.

Until next time, keep safe, busy and keep in touch,

Lejo Ouwendyk
Kennerlys Managing Director
