With a passion for innovation and entrepreneurialism, one of Darren’s core strengths is being able to identify business opportunities and then transforming those opportunities into successful business ventures.
It is in recognition of Darren’s achievements and contributions to his clients that he now sits on the Board of Directors for a number of privately held companies across a range of industries where he provides direction with a focus on financial and general business strategy.
Darren has been instrumental to the growth of Halpin Partners. The business began as a family business and it has been important to Darren that the family culture continues and is actively nurtured. Also important to Darren is his sense of corporate responsibility and as a result, Halpin Partners actively supports charities, schools and other activities within the Cairns and Innisfail regions.
Darren and Noelle have four small children, so creating balance is important and one of the outcomes that Darren delivers to his clients. Darren believes in working hard and playing hard and he brings this approach to business.
