As a Rockhampton local, Kevin Hawley plays an active part in the Central Queensland community as well as leading the Archer Wealth Management team.

Prior to joining the financial services industry Kevin enjoyed a diversified career with Queensland Government and Private Education Organisations in various roles including Accounting, Finance, Management, H.R. and Payroll. His varied experience also saw him serve on not-for-profit, charitable, and education focused boards in the Central Queensland region. Kevin is still actively involved in not for profit committees at both state and local level.

Joining the financial advice industry in 1999 Kevin has focused his career on helping clients have confidence in their financial future. His qualifications and experience ensure he is able to provide tailored solutions required to fund your ideal lifestyle and retirement.

Kevin completed his accounting degree at the Central Queensland University, going on to become a CPA through studies at Deakin University. He has since attained the designation of FCPA, a status that means that you are recognised as an expert in your field. This grounding in accounting and knowledge of this area helps him in discussions with accountants and solicitors and ensures there are no gaps in the advice you receive.

Financial Planning
One of the highest designations available to financial planners is the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation awarded by the FPA, after a vigorous education process. Kevin holds this designation as well as being a member of the FPA, the profession’s leading representative body.

At Archer Wealth Management our Principal Kevin is supported by Kathy Scharf, Client Services Manager. Kathy has many years’ experience supporting and assisting clients in accessing the advice and services they require.

Kathy’s main role is to ensure that the client process is streamlined and enjoyable. The implementation and review process is just as important as the initial provision of advice, and Kathy takes great pride in ensuring that client reviews and requests are processed efficiently and accurately.
