Propel About us

As Perth’s premier Accounting and Advisory firm, we are dedicated to building your wealth, trust, and security for the future.

Our Story

Propel Business Group was established in March 2003 by Russell Woollett FCPA CA & Sharon Woollett CPA under the former name  ‘Woollett Partners’. The practice specialized in family businesses with a view to grow. The Partners had identified a niche market opportunity to provide advisory services to the small to medium business community. Imagine having access to your very own peer advisory group, one-to-one coaching, fast-paced response to the changes within your business by a team dedicated to helping you succeed. This vision lead to the admission of a new Partner to the firm, Mr Darren Jones CPA.  Darren brought along new ideas and added value to the firms offerings along with a different perspective. The Partners soon realised they had complimentary ideas that would add confidence and success to a client’s portfolio of services. It was this coming together of the minds that has guided many clients to achieve their commercial ambitions and create wealth for their family’s future.
