About Us

Many businesses encounter financial challenges. Some of these challenges are short term, and others are more substantial. Either way, if owners don’t rapidly respond, the future of a company could be at stake.

At Macleay Partners, our goal is business continuity. We help companies deal with challenges early and effectively, to ensure businesses continue to operate and deliver benefits to owners, employees and other stakeholders.

Macleay Partners was established by Justin Ward , an experienced accountant, auditor and turnaround professional. Justin has worked for a number of leading firms, including Ernst & Young and de Vries Tayeh.


Justin has extensive experience in helping small to medium-sized businesses manage significant business issues, which can threaten the very existence of a business. He has also undertaken extensive pre-insolvency work and managed companies that are subject to external administrations.

During his career, Justin has witnessed firsthand what happens when businesses fail to respond to major challenges. When companies hit a crisis, stress levels run high and there may only be few options at an owner’s disposal. Instead, Justin intervenes early; he applies proven, technology-savvy solutions that improve processes and help build a better business.

We offer targeted solutions

At Macleay Partners, we focus on the areas of a business where we can deliver the greatest results. We don’t overreach, but provide targeted, short-term assistance.

We work collaboratively with your existing advisers

Most businesses have an experienced set of advisers. We work closely with these advisers to develop long-term processes and solutions that can be maintained once the engagement has concluded.
