New face be­hind desk at Chal­lenge

The Tatura Guardian - - People -

Per­haps you’ve no­ticed the new face around town — Di Hutchins has joined the team at Chal­lenge Tax­a­tion and Ac­count­ing.

Hav­ing spent most of her work­ing ca­reer in the equine in­dus­try Ms Hutchins de­cided it was time for a change of di­rec­tion and de­cided to go back to school.

Ms Hutchins re­cently grad­u­ated from La Trobe Univer­sity in Shep­par­ton with a Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness (Ac­count­ing) de­gree, which has led to her tak­ing up a po­si­tion with Chal­lenge Tax­a­tion and Ac­count­ing in Tatura.

While glad her de­gree is fin­ished, Ms Hutchins has de­cided to con­tinue study­ing. She will be­gin stud­ies for a CPA qual­i­fi­ca­tion next year, which she ad­mits will be her next chal­lenge.

‘‘I have had an in­ter­est­ing work­ing ca­reer be­fore this 360 de­gree turn­around,’’ she said.

Ms Hutchins worked at GV Equine Hos­pi­tal for al­most seven years, owned her own busi­ness (women’s cloth­ing) in Shep­par­ton for six years, worked for Na­ture Vet, an equine man­u­fac­turer of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal prod­ucts, where she trav­elled con­stantly as na­tional ac­count man­ager to the ma­jor equine vet­eri­nar­i­ans in the coun­try.

She also man­aged Shep­par­ton Har­ness Rac­ing Club for three years.

Ms Hutchins said she was lucky to find the po­si­tion at Chal­lenge Tax­a­tion, be­cause the one thing she has en­joyed over the years is work­ing with fig­ures and meet­ing peo­ple.

‘‘Chal­lenge Tax­a­tion fits the bill and I have set­tled in well un­der the guid­ance of Rex and Aaron (pro­pri­etors),’’ she said.

‘‘They are a great group of peo­ple and I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to work­ing with the team.’’

On board: Di Hutchins has joined the team at Chal­lenge Tax­a­tion and Ac­count­ing.
