I am a Chartered Accountant in Public Practice. My Chartered Accountancy firm started in Johnsonville in 1983 and merged with Urlich Bowker Ltd on 1 April 2015.
I have been described as an entrepreneurial accountant because of my own business involvements and my ability to support and help develop clients in business.
As well, I have a strong tax compliance knowledge and ability to assist clients to reach their goals and help them resolve problems or issues they may have with IRD.
As a result of that I have a high percentage of successful clients.
In 1987, I was the founding Secretary for Summit Resources. I was a Director of the Company from 1992 to 2005. Summit Resources NL was arguably the most successful company ever floated on the NZ Stock Exchange having started with $4 million and being sold for $1.4 billion.
