Rob Southwell

Partner, Sydney

Rob has experience providing advisory services to corporates, high net worth individuals and families with a focus on taxation, superannuation, structuring and asset selection solutions.

He places importance on deliberate and intentional decision making, concentrating on core business, long term investments and instituting supporting architecture to provide growth in a sustainable way.

With a passion for property and a property investor himself, Rob enjoys providing advice on the property sector and regularly presents on Sky Business News – Your Property Empire, as well as frequently providing commentary to other media outlets and online publications.

Over a nine-year period, Rob was the Managing Partner of Pitcher Partners Sydney. His decisions were not about growth for growth’s sake, they were always considered and deliberate with client’s needs at the centre of his decision making.

Rather than simply worrying about short-term profit, Rob concentrated on the firm’s long-term vision to ensure the firm has a strong, experienced and well-resourced team to meet the needs of clients now and into the future.

These strategies helped Rob guide the firm through a merger in 2015 and the more recent global pandemic.

As a former member of the Pitcher Partners National Coordination Committee Rob helped drive the vision and strategy of Pitcher Partners nationally and internationally.

Rob encourages people to work more strategically with a focus on client service excellence and attracting and developing the right people to enhance an organisation’s culture.
