Budgeting Works was established by Kris in 2011, as a result of his interest in personal budgeting. Even while Kris was studying his Business degree at Uni, he was helping friends to get their finances in order, hence the seed was planted for a business opportunity. Following graduation from Uni, Kris then became a Certified Practicing Accountant (CPA). Employment wise, he held various senior finance roles within leading Australian ASX listed companies, including AGL Energy.
Eventually Kris decided to leave the security of a senior management position, because he believed that he had something significant to offer the community in the personal budgeting space. He has spent the last few years developing the business systems and processes to ensure the IT, business and service platforms are robust and scalable.
Kris has secured many opportunities within the media to be an advocate for the personal budgeting industry whilst promoting Budgeting Works (formerly known as Bills to Pay). He has been an expert advisor on various news and current affairs programs over the last 3 years.
Kris has also created a TV show called Money and Your Life, which aired on Foxtel (channel 183) from November 2013 – February 2014. Being a family man himself, he takes great pride and satisfaction in seeing the changes the business can make on the lives of families.
Outside of Budgeting Works, Kris is a keen sports follower, in particular the AFL and a huge fan of the Essendon Football Club.
