I am married to Leanne and a father of three.
During my 20-year career with KPMG, I have had a number of client-facing and leadership roles, including management of some of our largest audit and advisory relationships, a period as our National Technical Director, the building of our very successful Accounting Advisory Business, secondment to KPMG IFRG in London and leadership of our Risk Advisory Services practice.
I have deep experience in the financial services sector in New Zealand and offshore. My current audit and advisory clients include a number of New Zealand’s largest financial institutions, including funds management, general insurance, banks, trustee companies and finance companies. I joined KPMG in 1994 after graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce and Administration from Victoria University of Wellington.
As leader of our Audit business, I am a great believer that accountability is the price that businesses, government and iwi organisations pay for investment capital. Independently audited information delivers accountability back to investors, taxpayers and the wider communities that support New Zealand’s businesses and our local and central government. Strong businesses are the key to the prosperity of New Zealand families, their jobs, their savings and the communities in which they live. It is fair to say that a KPMG audit enhances the credibility of the business we audit. And through our audits, we’re proud to be doing our bit for half of New Zealand’s top 12 organisations and one-third of the country’s top 50 organisations.
