Our leadership team consists of dedicated, highly skilled and experienced professionals who inspire, guide and mentor the AccountCom team. With extensive experience across a wide range of industries, our leaders instil within the team, our values and purpose.   


Kellie Klok
Managing Director

Kellie began her training in public practice before venturing into the commercial workspace, working for a public listed transport company. It was there that she gained valuable exposure to the outsource model, working in the head office with business units across Australia. She then moved into mining, with big systems and reporting schedules, and she was able to experience other side of the outsource model, with head office located in Queensland and her workplace being the site. Kellie now drives transformation, high output and innovation of businesses within AccountCom and is passionate about developing high-performing teams and outstanding leaders. Wife, mum and avid fitness enthusiast.
