Ginette Muller

Holding degrees in Business and Law, Ginette has significant commercial advisory experience.  

Previously she acted as liquidator investigating corporate wrongdoing by directors against creditors, pivoting to today where she assists directors to manage their risks and recognise when they are in, or approaching a danger zone and how to minimise harm to all stakeholders.

Ginette is a passionate advocate for companies being able to utilise Safe Harbour, Business Restructuring and as a last resort, formal administration. But directors need to understand the process before agreeing to it.

In Ginette’s approach, Safe Harbour is not only a valuable shield for company directors in times of uncertainty but also a pathway to improve corporate governance.

Ginette has been a firm supporter of Small Business Restructuring and facilitated one of the earliest cases back in 2021. The peak representative body for insolvency practitioners did not like the new process and declared it an ‘extraordinary failure’, citing unnecessary layers being added to an over-complex system. This criticism could not be further from the truth. SBR has saved many businesses and returned money to creditors who would have received nothing if the company was liquidated. Leaving control with the director is a unique and positive step for insolvency reform and was well overdue.

Ginette is a former ASIC registered liquidator (2002-2024) and has been a regulated Accountant since 1998.  She is a member of the Advisory Board for the Centre for Enterprise Governance with Bond University.
