An original Mainsheet director in the early 2000s, Mr Moody returns to the firm after holding roles as state chief executive, and national chief operating officer at audit, tax and advisory company BDO.
He has more than 30 years' consulting and management experience spanning corporate strategy, mergers and acquisitions, operation reviews and implementation of large change projects, including post-transaction support.
“We are very excited to have Gerard join us at this stage of our lifecycle – we have established a strong presence in Western Australia, and Gerard joining us will add to our capabilities,” Perth managing director Maurice Argento said.
During the past 12 months, Mainsheet’s consulting division has completed strategic projects for Atlas Iron, Horizon Power, Water Corporation, Lions Eye Institute, Rocky Bay, Ability Centre and Baptist Care.
Mr Salter has 20 years of international experience advising clients on labour and employment issues, including the drafting of Australian employment contracts and policies.

"Adam is highly respected in the Australian legal market," Jones Day partner-in-charge of Australia and Japan, Chris Ahern, said.
"He is a great representative for Jones Day in the region and will be very effective in fostering the continued collaboration of our Perth lawyers with our peers in Jones Day offices around the world.
“I look forward to working closely with him in the months and years ahead."
