Sheena Kearsey

Sheena Kearsey

Practice Manager

Sheena brings almost 20 years experience in the banking industry to the management of Burke & Mead. Sheena has steered the firm through 6 years of consistent growth and is the engine that drives the firm ever forward.

Sheena ensures that our practice continues to grow and operate efficiently. Like all true finance geeks she gets very excited by numbers, spreadsheets and reports – but unlike the stereotype, she takes a very personal and hands on approach with the entire team. We think that she is literally one in a million for her ability to bring great warmth and humanity to, well… numbers.

As a mother of three and fierce and passionate player of netball, Sheena knows how to achieve a goal and have fun doing it. This makes her a sought after member of the team and critical to the success of our firm.
