Shaun Costello

Director & Founder / SME Business Accountant

As husband to Mel, father of 8-year-old Oliver & 5-year-old Ariana who are both “very busy” as their grandma likes to put it… Shaun knows how to deal with the BIG problems.

As an SME Business advisory accountant & founding partner of CHG Integrated Wealth, he is the same….he wants to solve client’s everyday problems & make sure they feel safe & secure in the knowledge that he has them protected.

Shaun has seen CHG grow from no staff in 2012 to over 25 today and enjoyed every minute of it. His role has morphed in that time from being everything to everyone to now overseeing several parts of the business whilst still ensuring his clients are at the centre of everything he does.

He has a bachelor of business majoring in accounting and finance & has completed his CPA accreditation. Further, with the firms focus on Integrated Advice, he has a Diploma in Financial Planning so he can help clients on a wide range of financial & tax matters.

Shaun is also passionate about making a difference in his local community of Tweed Heads and Coolangatta, which lead to him launching the Kids on the Border foundation, which helps underprivileged kids have their best life.
