WCA Solutions director Bernard Mackin and his wife Debbie Mackin have become the sole owners of long-standing Perth-based HR consultancy WCA Solutions.
The pair acquired the 60% stake held by WCA founder and director Heather Warner following her decision to pursue other life and career passions.
The transaction, which coincided with the company’s 21st birthday, has seen Debbie Mackin join the WCA team as a director.
Debbie is an experienced commercial and project management professional with a qualification in chemical engineering and more than 25 years’ international experience working with tier 1 operators and Indigenous enterprises.
Bernard Mackin joined the company in 2018 bringing 25 years of international experience as a C-level executive, human resources and industrial relations professional. In 2021, Bernard made the natural progression to a major shareholder and director.
Since its establishment in late 2000, WCA has been supporting a range of small to medium sized businesses across the resources, medical, education, not for profit, government, agriculture, professional services, fisheries and hospitality sectors, among others.
Its expertise in state and federal employment legislation and contemporary HR solutions help clients navigate and adapt to a myriad of challenges in an ever-changing environment including HR governance and compliance, Covid-19 response plans, remuneration and benefits, performance management and grievances, recruitment and retention, diversity and inclusion, training, and change management.
The new leadership cements WCA Solutions’ future as specialists in the provision of tailored, comprehensive HR solutions.
“With our team of HR experts, WCA Solutions has built an outstanding reputation and has a very bright future ahead,” said Bernard Mackin.
“We will continue to deliver quality outcomes by building trusted and genuine relationships with our clients and adding value to their business by taking care of their people risks and challenges so they can focus on their own core area of expertise.
“I am looking forward to the next chapter for WCA Solutions.”
