Our People

Damien Gwynne

Damien Gwynne

Founder and Managing Director

I learned that the best financial wisdom is founded on patience, strong leadership, problem solving and a consistent dedication to positive outcomes and profit improvements.

CW Group and Certain Property Australia is forged from this forward-thinking philosophy. Our investment strategies are built on more than 50 years of experience in a variety of financial settings, including property companies, equity firms and securities groups. We’ve watched other firms put their profits before their clients and they’ve learned that, like most things in life, business is about people. That’s why CPA prioritises relationships built on trust, clear communication and a steady dedication to success.

My role is to develop sound strategies for your investment and implement those strategies with wisdom and experience garnered from the management of portfolios and accounts valued at more than $500 million.

CHL is designed to give you certainty in uncertain times. Though recent news headlines say that uncertainty is forever, we believe and have proven certainty is still alive and it’s waiting to be enjoyed by our clients and investors.

Operations Manager

I’m driven by the ability to make a real positive change for people which is why I moved from a long-term Business Banking role with a major bank to CPA, where people and their outcomes really do come first. I’m a number cruncher and I am extremely analytical whilst also being obsessed with the elegance of simple solutions to deliver on the big picture.

Everyone should invest in their own financial future and within CPA we are surrounded by people who actually walk the talk and believe in what we offer.

I am a Chartered Accountant and Registered Company Auditor with 20 years experience in professional accounting services. Having worked as an external auditor for Big 4 firms such as PwC (UK and Australia) and KPMG (Australia), as well as most recently a mid-tier professional services firm, Crowe, I have gained exposure to a broad variety of different organisations, ranging from multinational listed entities to small not-for-profits. I am experienced in ensuring sound financial processes are in place, and that financial results are reported accurately and transparently. I am excited to bring my technical experience and skills to CW Group to help ensure a robust finance department and to assist in facilitating the future growth of such a dynamic and forward thinking group.

In my spare time I am a devoted family guy who, weirdly enough, enjoys running up and down stairs for exercise and has a strong passion for music, especially going to live gigs.
