Belinda is a strategic, highly skilled Finance professional who plays a critical role as part of our national leadership team at Architectus.

In a global career spanning Cape Town, London, and Sydney, Belinda gained expertise in developing the people, systems and processes that keep partner-owned businesses flourishing.

Most recently, she was CFO of Brennan IT in Sydney, where she helped the company successfully pursue its growth plans, including three acquisitions and financial integrations. In her four years there, she strengthened the Finance team’s capabilities and systems as well as their capacity to add commercial value to the business and support the company’s future direction.

A Chartered Accountant, Belinda also held senior positions with Parsons Brinckerhoff, later acquired by WSP. Along with the integration capability she acquired in that phase of her career, she has significant experience in tax, valuations and systems across employee-owned and private companies.

Belinda is based in our Sydney studio, where she is leading both Finance and IT for the practice.
