Farewell to Chris Long

Chris’ contribution to Bush & Campbell and his clients cannot be underestimated.

Chris’ 39 years at Bush & Campbell will come to an end at 30 June 2015 when he permanently retires. Chris is in fine health and believed the time was right to retire, perhaps the many stories of travel from his clients began to make an impression! Chris will be dearly missed by all of us at Bush & Campbell who have worked with him for many years and also his clients that over the years have become friends.

Bush & Campbell will continue to offer specialist self managed superannuation advice. Daniel Uden, Who has been working with Chris and many of you over the last few years, will manage the self managed superannuation division and his approach is similar to Chris’ – if we can do something for our clients we will come to you!
