She leads Grant Thornton’s B2G (Business to Government) team, which specialises in assisting business to fully leverage the very diverse range of grants and incentives available at both State and Federal level.
Over the last 10 years the B2G team has demonstrated an outstanding track record of successfully obtaining highly contestable discretionary funding for clients across a large range of industry sectors.

Jacky grew up working in the family manufacturing business and has been passionate about retaining and growing the manufacturing sector in Australia ever since. As a Japanese speaker, she started her career working for a Japanese Government agency (JETRO) helping Australian manufacturers export to Japan.
