Tammy Barton is one of Australia’s leading business women and the Founder and Director of personal budgeting company MyBudget, which has grown into a national success story.
In 1999 and aged just 22, Tammy started the business from her home kitchen table after realising she could help people to gain control of their finances and manage their personal budgets.
Today MyBudget has helped more than 75,000 clients Australia-wide and, in the process, has increased its staff from just a few individuals to a team of 300+ that’s spread across the country. MyBudget currently manages close to a billion dollars every year on behalf of their clients.
MyBudget delivers its services from its head office in Adelaide and currently has 11 branches throughout SA, NSW, VIC, QLD and WA.
In 2009, MyBudget debuted on Business Review Weekly’s Fastest Growing Companies list in the 52nd position. It remained on the Fast 100 list for a further three consecutive years: 37th in 2010, 41st in 2011 and 61st in 2012.
Tammy’s recognition in the corporate arena has been outstanding where she has been named 2017 Telstra South Australian Business Woman of the Year, as well as Ernst & Young’s ‘Young’ Entrepreneur of the Year for the central region. Most recently, Tammy was acknowledged by International Business Times Australia in its 100 Women of Influence Awards. Tammy has been on the BankSA Advisory Board for 5 years.
MyBudget’s sustained growth reflects the company’s unwavering commitment to reducing financial stress in the community.
