Founder of Fuel Business Consulting.

Qualified accountant, registered BAS Agent & Xero certified advisor. 

After spending 10 years in corporate accounting as a Chief Financial Officer for multiple ASX listed companies, Marlaina was burnt out and disillusioned with the industry and knew that there had to be more she could do with her skills.

Fuel Business Consulting was born from a strong desire to help small business owners gain clarity & confidence with their numbers whilst allowing Marlaina to to do business "on her terms". 

As a business owner herself, wife and mother, she knows the juggle is real and whilst finances are extremely important, a healthy mindset and lifestyle also play a major role in being a successful business owner.

Partner in life and now partner in business to Marlaina, Martyn has spent the past 15 years working in the construction industry as a pricing specialist and a margin analyst for the biggest home building groups in Australia, with the margin analyst role becoming a step out role for him and allowing him to be a big picture thinker.

He’s a born numbers man and an Excel spreadsheet guru and joins Fuel Business Consulting as a Business Advisor to help clients achieve their pricing and profit goals.
