I have been with Canny since day one! When founder Stan Canny and I played footy shoulder to shoulder with North Geelong. Stan, born in the Northern Suburbs, found client uptake in his office in the heart of Geelong too slow, so he resolved “if clients won’t come to me, I’ll go to them” and he set up in Station Street, Norlane and the locals – subbies, retailers, wage and salary earners – began knocking on his door and discovered caring service. Dealing with tax, legislation and complex regulations etc, Stan ranked people ahead of just paperwork and numbers. Many have become lifelong friends. Stan has retired but, for this family based company, right up to date with complex demands made on business, families and individuals, it still sees people and it still cares. Nothing’s changed.
