Janina Puttick

Janina Puttick

Owner and Principal of Maximum Business Solutions

Janina began her accounting career as a Finance Manager in New Zealand whilst studying both a Bachelor of Science and Commerce, a skill set that has taught her to be analytical. After immigrating to Australia with her young family she started her own bookkeeping business in 2001.

This gave her the opportunity to complete her business degree and her CPA, which she achieved in June 2016.

Janina has been a Business Consultant for large companies and has been involved in several large IT implementations both technically and with a change management approach.

Using both her consultancy and small business experience her business has now evolved and provides cloud IT integration services, business consultancy, financial management and bookkeeping, with a personal touch.

When she is not volunteering as the Secretary for the local Community Bank, Janina enjoys a hit of tennis, walking, and relaxing with wine, family and friends.
