Ciara heads up the advice team at Wealth Tree Solutions and holds the position of Head of Wealth Management.
Ciara has enjoyed a solid and distinguished career progression since commencing her first role as a young Receptionist at a busy Perth planning practice in 2005. Her main goal has always been to make a lasting difference in her clients’ financial lives. She believes she can achieve this by designing complex financial strategies made to look simple, or simply by being your main point of contact for any financial concerns.
Since the early 2000s, Ciara has worked with clients all over Australia and contracted to many Financial Planning practices in Perth, specialising in strategic modelling and plan development. Over the years she has developed a special interest in retirement planning and structuring client’s affairs on the diagnosis of disability.
After several years working in Queensland, she realised there is no place like home and is now back enjoying our beautiful beaches and planning her next Margaret River getaway.
Mark is our company’s specialist research analyst and adds a very valuable component to the “back office” for our business when it comes to delivering advice in an “outcomes-based” and compliant driven financial planning world.

Mark has a passion for finding solutions to clients’ needs using extensive technical skills and experience gained from his years in the profession.
Mark’s been a keen yachtie, enjoying afternoon racing on the Swan River until moving to Dunsborough WA. Since then the yacht has been replaced by an ambulance with Volunteer Ambulance Officer duties with St John Ambulance WA providing emergency response to the local community taking up a lot of his spare time. With two active school-aged children into surf club, ballet, and soccer, life is never quiet.
