Our Story.

Bartons began as a small accounting practice, located on Jetty Road, Glenelg, over 50 years ago. Since then, the business has steadily grown and expanded its services to meet the ongoing and ever-changing needs of our clients.

We are fortunate to have four long-serving Directors leading Bartons into the future. Leanne Carnegie-Smith, who joined the team in 1995, and was appointed Director in 2000. Chris Waples joined as Managing Director in 2005. Stuart Brown was appointed as a Director in 2007 to develop the Wealth Management offering. While Adam McCann joined to lead the Risk Protection and Medical teams in 2010.

As Bartons continues to grow, we encourage our people to develop with us, becoming our next generation of leaders to secure the future of our business.

We are now a team of nearly 50 staff; each of who plays a significant role in continuing the success and evolution of our business. We understand, to continue our current growth, we must further develop our practices to keep pace with the needs of our clients and the overall business environment. Through all of this, our constant aim is to bring the best possible value to our clients, our people and our broader community.
