Twenty years' service all adds up to fond memories for Warrnambool accountant Robert Duynhoven.
Mr Duynhoven played a key role in the growth of Brophy Family and Youth Services across two decades before retiring from his post as business manager.
"When I was initially involved with Brophy we were operating at 150 Liebig Street with a staff of 30," he said as he bid farewell after a 20-year stint with the group.
"Now we have quite a few hundred staff and a financial year turnover of just under $14 million."
Mr Duynhoven reflected on his time after finishing up.
In 1999, Mr Duynhoven was employed as business manager of the organisation.
"I always really liked what the organisation does in the community," he said.
"The values of Brophy have always been very high.
"As an accountant it has been a great opportunity for me to give back to the community."
After a four-year stint in New South Wales, the south-west born and bred Mr Duynhoven sat on the Brophy Board for one year before returning to the role as business manager.
"I assisted with the building of the new facility and making sure we could operate out of there," he said.
"A highlight has definitely been the building of the Timor Street complex and the establishment of The Foyer as well as seeing the overall growth of the organisation.
"It was an excellent organisation to sit on the board."
Brophy's chief executive Francis Broekman said Mr Duynhoven would be sorely missed from the organisation.
"Through his role on the Board Rob has played a significant part in the growth of the organisation. He has been a stalwart on our board especially when it comes to financially advising us with key issues and strategies," he said.
"He has a wonderful demeanour where he quietly and respectively gets his point across.
"His knowledge of the financial world has been vital to us in growing our non-for-profit."
Mr Broekman said Mr Duynhoven was intrinsic in the move to the Timor Street complex.
"It'd been our mission for eight years to find a location, design the complex and build it and he was able to move us in and get us moving," he said.
"Knowing we were in such good hands with the transition and budget throughout the move was a real support for me."
Mr Broekman was extremely thankful for the contribution Mr Duynhoven had made in his 20 years in all aspects at Brophy.
"He's done a number of bike rides for our causes," he said.
"He'd be out there getting our message out and the next day he'd be back in the office.
"He's a role model and believes in our work."
While Mr Duynhoven has retired from his role at Brophy, he will continue working at South West TAFE and hold roles on the Warrnambool Gift and Greyhound Racing Club boards.
