The parent company of a business events operation based on Sydney’s Northern Beaches has gone into liquidation, with its remaining assets now for sale.

According to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, Jirsch Sutherland’s Andrew John Spring and Trent Andrew Devine were appointed as joint liquidators of Calcon Communications, which owns the Executive Assistant Network (EAN).

Established in 2005, EAN offered products and services designed to benefit senior executive assistants and personal assistants working with senior executives in medium-to-large enterprises.

According to its website, which was still live at the time of publishing, EAN had over 7,500 members and associate members drawn from over 2,900 organisations across Australia and the rest of the world.

The company claimed it aimed to hold over 30 networking functions for members in Australia each year, as well as offer over 200 training and educational events and five major conferences and exhibitions.

The liquidators are currently trying to executive a sale of goodwill of the business, which had an annual turnover of approximately $2 million.

The Nibbler attempted to contact the company’s directors, Natasha Cannon and Jonathan McIlroy, but their respective phone lines have been disconnected.
