Martin Lane

Senior Accountant

03 9723 7100

Martin commenced employment as an indentured trainee Accountant with a medium sided Chartered Accounting firm in 1974, from this tentative beginning grew a lifelong career in the field of professional Accounting that has now spanned 45 years.

Martin worked in a variety of firms, both CPA and Chartered; ranging in size from sole practitioner to the Melbourne offices of PWC (price Waterhouse Coopers), this variety and breadth of experience has given him the basis for practice direction and growth.

In 1994 Martin joined with Jon Moller to amalgamate their two practices and created Lane Moller Partners, which later went onto become LMP Accountants.  

Martin was a partner in the firm from 1994 to 2008, at which time he formally retired from the partnership along with Jon Moller and ownership passed to Darren Haycraft and Frank Vetere who were both long-term valued and skilled employees of the firm.

Martin now works in a part time capacity for LMP Accountants.  We look forward to a continuing presence of Martin within the firm in his role as advisor to our valued clients.

Martin, his wife and Family have lived in the eastern suburbs of North Ringwood and Croydon North for 35 years. 

Martin is a confirmed 5 days a week Gym Junkie, which he uses to kick start his days both in the office and at home. His other more recent passion is that of 4WD, enjoying the wonderful sights and sounds that this great country has to offer to the traveller.
