WCA Solutions has found new ownership in a husband-and-wife duo who have bought the business from founder Heather Warner.

WA Solutions director Bernard Mackin and his wife Debbie Mackin have acquired the remaining 60 per cent stake in the West Perth-based HR consultant, which counts Black Brewing Co, the state government, WA Ballet, and Leeuwin Estate on its client list.

Mr Mackin purchased an initial 40 per cent stake in the business from founder and director Heather Warner in 2021.

The pair have since acquired the remaining interest from Ms Warner following her decision to “pursue other life and career passions”, making them sole owners of WCA.

The business has gone on to build a team of 18 staff and has recently celebrated its 21st year in business.

Mr Mackin joined WCA in 2018 as a senior HR consultant after 25 years as a human resources and industrial relations executive.  

Mrs Mackin, a commercial and project management professional also with multi-decade experience, will join the business as a director.

Broadly, the company says the new leadership cements WCA Solutions’ future as specialists in the provision of tailored, comprehensive HR solutions.

“With our team of HR experts, WCA Solutions has built an outstanding reputation and has a very bright future ahead,” Mr Mackin said.

“We will continue to deliver quality outcomes by building trusted and genuine relationships with our clients and adding value to their business by taking care of their people risks and challenges so they can focus on their own core area of expertise.”
