Fresh Eyes for your Business

Marty Sammon is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants with over thirty years’ experience in the agribusiness sector.

His experience includes 15 years with WHK Thomsons in Mildura as partner in charge of their consulting division. His work involved assisting clients with financing of major agribusiness developments during the period of rapid growth of horticulture in Mildura.

With Psi Delta he carried out several consultancies where major new stand-alone projects were evaluated for development with Marty’s work including assessment of sources of finance and the financial analysis of projects.

For Murrumbidgee Irrigation and for Murray Irrigation, New South Wales’s two largest private irrigation businesses, Marty assessed the feasibility and sources of finance for major new initiatives designed to increase returns to these irrigation businesses from investment in irrigation infrastructure and water entitlements.

He has a good understanding of the evaluation of current and future agribusiness and for five years headed the team evaluating unlisted agribusiness opportunities for one of Australia’s leading share brokers and investment advisers, Lonsec Limited.  He recently worked for one of Australia’s largest almond farms, located in northern Victoria.

His work has required an understanding of a wide range of business structures to develop and operate agriculture and water-based projects.

Through his investment in a successful regional hotel, he has specialized expertise in hotel management and accounting.
