The ultimate corporate
bike challenge

Brian Wood

There is a proud tradition of supporting the children through the Chain Reaction Challenge at KordaMentha and Brian’s time has finally arrived!

Brian is the managing partner of KordaMentha in Brisbane, and a forensic accountant who has acted in relation to some of Australia’s largest and most commercially sensitive matters. These achievements pale in comparison to the pride he feels as father to his three children – Koby (13), Lucas (11) and Josie (8).

‘My wife, Kate, and I have been incredibly fortunate to have raised three healthy kids. They are now old enough to understand why their dad would subject himself to four months of early morning training rides and 1000 gruelling kilometres from Sydney to Brisbane to make a difference for families that have not been as fortunate. I could not do this without their support, and without your support also. I am not sure I have it in me to do another one of these, so please give generously this time around. Your contribution is greatly appreciated!’
