Sarah Lawrance – CPA, B.Fin

Director and Primary Consultant

Sarah’s love of business began at just eight years old when she would get up early to watch Business Sunday with her father. What followed was a Bachelor of Finance and a stint in the UK perfecting the art of finance on small and medium sized companies throughout Europe.

Upon returning to Australia in 2014, Sarah found her niche working with film, media, advertising and marketing companies.

Sarah founded Hot Toast in 2015 with the goal of helping small to medium businesses scale. Being able to understand the story the numbers tell and provide insights and value to these businesses in a way that supports aggressive growth strategies is why she does what she does.

Craig Heritage

Production Accountant and Bookkeeper

After many years managing large scale construction projects, Craig decided to make a career change to bookkeeping. Craig has always had a love for numbers, which he used to build a successful property portfolio that was featured in Australian Property Investor.

Craig’s love of the commercial aspect of business, attention to detail and ability to think outside the box are part of the unique skill set he brings to any bookkeeping job.

When he isn’t working hard to help businesses grow, he can be found down at Bondi surfing.

Lisa Alexander - CPA, B.Com

Financial Controller & Trust Accountant

Lisa’s love for numbers blossomed back in high school. A bit of a maths nerd, Lisa loved the element of problem solving and logical thinking.
Throughout her career, Lisa has spent time working in publicly listed companies, but was drawn to the innovative ‘small business feel, big business thinking’ of Hot Toast. Lisa loves working with Hot Toast’s real estate and property clients, guiding and supporting them on their business journey.
When Lisa isn’t at work, life can get pretty hectic with her two kids who she loves taking to the beach or on bush walks.

Tiffany Beck - CA, B.Com

Client Manager

Tiffany has had an eclectic career.

Before Hot Toast, she was an auditor at KPMG and worked in Germany as a financial accountant. Packed with a little bit of German and a lot of new ideas to implement, she returned home to become GM for various organisations including Gai Waterhouse Racing.

The 3 things she loves most about Hot Toast: being in a position to help businesses realise their goals, the variety of clients, and the flexibility of her role.

Her recipe to unwind? Diving straight into nature with hiking and competitive ocean swimming.

Katerina Santo - B.Com

Client Manager

Katerina never thought she’d become an accountant until she started working as an admin in an accounting firm.

But when she did become a rock star accountant, she always knew that a boutique-sized firm like Hot Toast would be the perfect fit.

To Katerina, Hot Toast is anything but traditional, and she loves to innovate and build deep and meaningful relationships with clients.

When she isn’t busy running after two little kids or cute puppies, she’s glued to the screen watching ice hockey.

Rebecca Eadie

Client Manager

After finishing uni, wild-at-heart Rebecca travelled through Asia and South America teaching English.

Now back home, she has embarked on her finance adventures with Hot Toast and is excited to grow with the business.

She still has fond memories of her 5-day Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu and cannot wait to get back out there again.
