Meet The Team

Brendon Davies



Ascend Business Results is Brendon’s brainchild.  And he couldn’t be happier about it.


Brendon has been an accountant for over two decades and running his own business for nearly the same amount of time.  Throughout his career, Brendon has provided support and advice to a vast array of clients and always recognizes that he is learning so much from his clients too.


Brendon assists a broad range of clients on all areas of business.  It doesn’t matter if your business is a small farm, a medium sized industry-based factory or a complex conglomerate, Brendon will be able to assist you with practical, cost effective and robust solutions and support.


Ascend Business Results is a thriving business because Brendon has united a team of professional people who have the same values and vision as he does.  Building relationships and supporting your business needs with a range of techniques, stakeholders and agencies is Ascend’s super power.


When Brendon isn’t working on your business stuff, he can be found out in the community (he’s on the board of a few important community organisations) or enjoying the beaches of the beautiful Midwest region.


Sylvia Hancock

Bookkeeper/Business Consultant


“Inspired by those who make the ordinary into the extraordinary.”


Sylvia is passionate about small business success.  In fact, you could say she goes above and beyond to assist people who work tirelessly in their small businesses to succeed and grow in the direction they want to.


Sylvia is a perpetual student and has thorough understanding of what it is like juggling commitments and priorities learning new things and sometimes getting too bogged down in things that don’t light you up.  This is where Sylvia will help you out – getting you un-bogged is what she is great at. Whether you need help starting up, cleaning up or levelling up – Sylvia can help you take control of your bookkeeping and business operation processes and free up your precious time.


Sylvia was a finalist (in the top four!) of Individual Customer Service in the 2017 Business Excellence Award presented by the Midwest Chamber of Commerce and Industry.   Put simply, Sylvia is someone who loves to help people.



Shani Worsley

Undergrad Accountant


“A big kid at heart!”


Shani’s love of numbers started when she was a child living in South Africa. Her grandfather made a wager with her around her studies and her brain immediately calculated what she would need to achieve to win the wager.  Working in the family business and recording the day’s takings each Saturday gave her much excitement – much more than her other studies did!


Shani loves providing excellent customer service and goes above and beyond to surpass the customer’s expectations.


She is embracing learning new things as our trainee Accountant and her career in front of her is bound to be a success due to her excellent organizational skills and commitment to the finance industry.



Clarissa Frater

Client Services Manager

She also has a great passion for helping people and uses her life knowledge & skills to always do what is best for the client.
