Nevil hails from Sri Lanka, where he completed his Bachelor of Commerce at Colombo University. After a junior accounting role in the construction industry, Nevil was eager to explore some work/life balance and spent three years as the accountant at a Maldives hotel – think Pina Coladas and P&Ls and togs & COGs. Nevil harboured another dream – of living in Australia – and made that happen in 2010, heading to Adelaide for a role with a food importer before moving to Melbourne to work with a union organisation. A casual role at EWB Australia quickly morphed into a full-time role as our Accountant, a role Nevil has held since 2016. Nevil loves EWB Australia’s culture and people. On the work front, Nevil’s favourite task is managing accounts receivable – it’s much more exciting to see the money coming in than going out.
Nevil relishes being a dad to his two young children, and spends spare time with friends desperately trying to improve his cricket batting average (it currently sits at 15). Nevil is a CPA Associate Member and hopes to complete his full CPA in the very near future.
