About Chisholm Partners

The firm was originally formed in March 1976, under the name of Heslop & McLeish, when Rob Heslop and Rob McLeish entered into partnership. The firm commenced practising at 33 Reid Street, Wangaratta before moving to its present premises at 7 Chisholm Street, Wangaratta in April 1978.

In March 1990, Bruce Desmond merged his practice with the firm and became a partner. Bruce was previously employed by and subsequently became a partner of KPMG Chartered Accountants, until he commenced his own practice in Wangaratta in July 1988 at 94 Murphy St, Wangaratta.

Kristian Hedin joined the firm in May 1995 and was appointed a partner in July 1998 when Rob Heslop and Rob McLeish resigned as partners. Kristian was previously employed by KPMG at their Albury office.

The firm changed its name to Chisholm Partners on 1 July 2001.

Chisholm Partners provide an extensive range of personal and business accounting services throughout the North East of Victoria. We offer a high quality service to our clients, utilising the collective knowledge and experience gained from many years in the business.


About the Director

Kristian grew up in NE Vic (Mansfield) studied at RMIT in Melbourne. After graduating, Kristian worked in Melbourne before moving to Albury to work at KPMG. Kristian has always enjoyed the country lifestyle. He was looking for somewhere he could provide a high level of service, expertise and knowledge to clients while also enjoying the lifestyle that country Victoria allows for.

Kristian has also always wanted to raise a family in an area that provided great education, health services, and sporting opportunities combined with country living - yet only a two hour drive away from metropolitan Melbourne.
