Steve Kirton - Senior Manager
Steve grew up on a farm just outside of Goulburn, and joined Boyce as a cadet accountant in 2004 after finishing high school. He found the cadetship program an invaluable way to learn the ropes by gaining on the job practical experience whilst completing his university studies.
In 2007 Steve graduated from the Australian National University in Canberra with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting & Management. Steve combined full time work with post-graduate studies to become a qualified Chartered Accountant in 2010.

Steve is also a MYOB guru and has done a variety of on-site work with clients to setup new systems and improve the efficiency of existing systems, and is passionate about making the best use of available technologies.
Steve was appointed as a manager in 2012 and was then promoted to senior manager in 2020 after winning the firms’ prestigious Tony Quirk employee of the year award in 2019.
Over the years Steve has worked with a wide variety of clients and industries including agriculture, building and construction, manufacturing, medical, professional services, and retail, as well as having been a key member of Boyce’s internal Finance team responsible for the preparation of the firm’s own financial statements and tax returns.
