Starting in the early 1980s, Brisan Hospitality Consulting is now a second-generation family business, run by the Evans family. Despite their love of owning and operating hotels in regions from Airlie Beach to Geelong, Batemans Bay, Port Moresby, and eventually Adelaide, they increasingly found that general accountants didn’t seem to understand the specifics of running a hospitality business. The solution – train up in the accounting field in order to help the industry.
The move into accounting services was initiated by Brian and Sandy Evans, and once their daughter Nicole – the next generation – had graduated from university, the business grew. Starting with stock control, inventory issues, and profit analysing, Brisan evolved into a full-service boutique firm with an expanded scope of accounting, payroll, consulting and analysis services.
About the Director

Two days after her 18th birthday, Nicole Evans was placed in charge of a well-known Adelaide CBD hotel, to manage their gaming while she also studied at Adelaide University. As a partner in the hotel, Nicole gained first-hand experience with staffing management, accounting needs, and even worked back-of house when needed, to support her team.
After many years in the industry, Nicole shifted into her full time Director seat 10 years ago, to manage and support the growing number of hospitality businesses needing accounting services.
