Philip Oechsle Aug 31, 2023 4:22:30 PM

"In the world of finance, just like in soccer, precision and teamwork make all the difference. As a dedicated accountant and a soccer enthusiast, I've learned that whether you're aiming for the back of the net or balancing the books, success comes from strategy, skill, and passion. Let's kick off this financial journey together!" - Wellington Takakura, Financial Playmaker.

Numeric Eight is excited to introduce you to our new partner, Wellington Takakura. As we join forces with Carbon Group, Wellington steps in to lead our team with a wealth of experience and expertise as the Carbon Group NSW Bookkeeping Managing Partner.


Wellington's Vision for Numeric Eight

Wellington takes the field with a compelling vision for Numeric Eight. Just as Neymar envisions the perfect goal, he envisions Numeric Eight as the leading provider of bookkeeping services in NSW. His aim is to elevate the already exceptional quality, reliability, and client satisfaction that Numeric Eight has long been known for. But he's not stopping there. Wellington intends to expand our services while consistently delivering value-added solutions to help businesses thrive.


Crossing Continents

Wellington's path to Numeric Eight is a tale of crossing continents and boundaries. After dedicating 8 years to a role as an Accounting Supervisor in Brazil, he sought a new challenge. With determination and the desire to explore new horizons, he embarked on a journey that would take him from South America to the shores of Australia.

Learning English and with his family in tow, Wellington set out for Australia, initially planning to stay for just half a year. However, the appeal of the land down under, with its unique opportunities and vibrant culture, soon captured his heart, prompting him to make it his permanent home.

To align himself with Australian business standards and excel in his career, Wellington pursued a path of education and professional development. He earned his Diploma in Accounting and a Cert IV in Business, enhancing his financial acumen. His educational journey culminated in the attainment of a Master of Accounting, equipping him with the knowledge and expertise needed to thrive in the Australian business arena.

Today, as a Partner at Carbon Group and the newly appointed leader of Numeric Eight, Wellington's journey continues. His mission extends beyond traditional bookkeeping, encompassing a broader role as a Virtual Chief Financial Officer for businesses. This remarkable odyssey from Brazil to Australia has not only enriched his life but also provides a unique perspective that adds immense value to the Numeric Eight team and its clients.

A Glimpse Beyond Numbers

Wellington's life isn't solely confined to financial figures and business strategies. Beyond the world of numbers and charts, he's an enthusiast, a family man, and an advocate for life's simple pleasures. 

Born in Brazil, Wellington's roots run deep into the rich culture of soccer, a passion he's now passing on to his child by playing with him as much as possible, and watching professional matches together. 

Beyond sports, he enjoys quality time with friends and indulging in authentic Brazilian barbecues.

For Wellington, “it's all about enjoying the simple, meaningful moments that make life truly 'saboroso' (delicious)."
