Newland Chase is pleased to welcome Michael Wall to its team as Managing Director of Australia. In his new role as head of Newland Chase’s Australia practice, Michael leads the company’s corporate immigration service delivery to its growing base of clients operating in Australia.
“Newland Chase is excited to have someone with Mike’s extensive experience leading our team in Australia. His proven track record of success leading other firms in the corporate immigration sector in Australia will serve our clients and our business well. I am confident this success will only continue, and his leadership will serve as a catalyst for even faster growth in this key market,” says Steven Diehl, Global Managing Director of Newland Chase.
Mike joins Newland Chase with 20+ years experience in the global mobility industry, including 15+ years in leadership roles within the immigration practices of the Big Four accounting firms. His most recent role saw him lead the national practice of a Big Four accounting firm where he oversaw a significant restructure of their practice and successfully led and won some of Australia’s largest immigration tenders.
Mike began his career in corporate immigration straight out of university as an immigration consultant with then Australia’s largest specialist immigration firm. A Registered Migration Agent since 1995, he graduated from the University of Western Sydney with a Bachelors of Business in Economics and Finance.
“Australian immigration presents a challenging environment for companies right now… with the recent transition from the 457 to the TSS visa and the increased emphasis on compliance. Companies need solid strategic advice,” says Wall. “It’s not just about the visa. It’s about the overall management of their foreign workforce and their mobility programs. That’s where our opportunity lies – in providing those high-quality, strategic solutions.”
Mike is based in the Newland Chase Sydney office and oversees all offices located in Australia. Enquiries regarding Newland Chase’s Australia services may be directed to Michael.Wall@newlandchase.com.
