The RMCG story started in Bendigo in 1989 with Rob Rendell and Nigel McGuckian. The initial focus was on helping farmers build sustainable businesses. We still retain that strong connection with individual farmers. It gives us a real understanding of what government policies mean in practice.
RMCG has now grown to cover the full range of issues that drive sustainable outcomes in the management of water and other natural resources. We have over forty professional staff working from offices in Bendigo, Melbourne, Torquay and Warragul in Victoria as well as Penguin in Tasmania.
Up until recently, the business operated as a partnership. In response to business growth, the Principals have now incorporated the business to provide it with a solid platform for the future. The newly incorporated entity provides RMCG with a strong corporate governance framework, which is appropriate for the size and nature of the business as well as providing opportunities for employee ownership and growth.
We care for our clients and their well-being. We pride ourselves on our integrity and our willingness to be honest in our advice to clients for their best interest.
All of our dealings with our clients are underpinned by our strongly held values:
