Andrew Van De Beek

Founder and Director of illumin8 Partners

I’m Andrew, and although I might not look like one, I’m an accountant. I’m the founder of illumin8 where I lead an amazing team that share my passion for helping small business owners do more of what they love. What small business owners need from an accountant is different. The days of just doing the books and filing tax returns are gone. Accountants of today and tomorrow need to be more and do more.

We’re lucky, we don’t have the legacy of the old world of accounting. All we know is cloud based, advisory lead accounting. I always push the boundaries, it’s the only way I can make the difference I want to make. I ask lots of questions. I listen to the answers and I’m not afraid to challenge what I hear.

The result of my approach is that my team are empowered to make decisions and to support their clients. They’ve got the freedom to think for themselves. That’s a big reason why we’ve won multiple accounting industry awards and why I was named as Australia’s accounting industry Thought Leader of the Year.

I’m proud of our successes but what means more is what we do for our clients. And because of the awesomeness of my team, it means I’m able to spend more time with my amazing family in the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. If I can squeeze in some me time you’ll find me watching my beloved Utah Jazz while sipping a wonderful whisky.


Ron Lesh

Founder and Managing Director at BGL Corporate Solutions

Ron attained a Bachelor of Business in 1980, qualified as an Australian Chartered Accountant in 1992 and completed a Graduate Diploma in Information Technology in 1987.
