Gabriella Gibney


SUPERPOWER // Natural nurturing nature. Taking on the tasks that nobody else wants to!

It was while completing her Bachelor of Commerce at Deakin University, Geelong that Gabriella realised that “Accounting is the language of Business”.  Having this knowledge saw her choose Accounting as her Major along with Financial and Commercial Law.  As a fresh graduate in 2008 and with a strong passion for accounting and people, Gabriella started her first job in a Public Practice accounting firm in Geelong and not long after went on to complete her Graduate Diploma of Chartered Accounting (CA).  Five years later she found her home and became part of our accounting team at Canny Group bringing with her vast experience in Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF), taxation, financial reporting and general business services.

As one of our senior accountants now with 13 years of knowledge and experience, after having some time off to have her first child, Gabriella is now working in the Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) area with our team at Canny Group which complements her attributes such as strong attention to detail, an inquisitive mind, empathy and a passion for our client’s success.

In her 13 years working in business services, she has truly been amazed at the businesses and our clients that she has been lucky enough to be involved with.  She has learnt so much from them and has truly loved walking alongside them, nurturing them, helping them to find their feet, grow and find great success.  It is a strong desire of Gabriella’s to make a difference in the world and in her role as an accountant she feels like she is able to make a difference even if it is in a small way to our clients.

Outside of work, Gabriella is soaking up precious moments with her young son and partner Daniel.  Spending time immersed in a good thriller book, wine in hand while in a hammock on a warm beach is her ideal way to relax.
