Owner and founder of MJA Business Solutions, Melanie Zander has been working with business owners for over 18 years and is passionate about helping Coffs Coast businesses to grow and thrive.

Melanie Zander is the founder and leader of MJA Business Solutions and partner in MJA Financial Services.  When she launched MJA in 2007, she had been a practicing accountant for nearly a decade.  Having worked in both commercial and professional service firms, Mel had a strong sense of the challenges faced by SME’s, and set out to build a practice that would meet their needs.

Mel is not the stereotypical “backroom” accountant.  She prefers to play a business advisory role with clients, focusing on strategies and financial plans to drive the business forward, rather than counting past results.  She works closely with clients on cash flow issues and managerial accounting as well as providing business coaching to help clients reach for excellence and growth.

Wanting to ensure that her clients’ wealth was well managed as their businesses grew, she qualified as a wealth adviser in 2016, and started MJA Financial Services the same year. She entered a partnership with experienced financial planner Brendan Hoy in early 2017, to establish MJA Financial Services as a full service advisory practice.
