With a wealth of international corporate accounting experience in FTSE Index companies like BAE Systems, Thomas Cook and BOC Gases, Simon relishes the challenge of setting up structures and procedures for smaller businesses.
A member of Chartered Accountants, Australia & New Zealand, Simon holds a Bachelor of Management Studies (Hons) from The University of Waikato majoring in Accountancy and Management Systems.
Upon completing his studies, Simon spent three years in the Business Advisory Services team of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, Auckland before moving to London “for a few years” to pursue a career in a larger city. A few years turned into a decade!
In 2013 Simon, with his ski instructor wife Kath, decided Wanaka was the perfect place to spend winters; then after bouncing around between Canada, England and Wanaka, settled in Wanaka for good in 2016.
Simon is originally from Whangarei. He enjoys golf and armchair rugby (a tough gig when you support Northland RFU). Being an outdoor enthusiast and keen snowboarder, he is very happy with the decision to leave behind the noise and pace of London for the lifestyle Wanaka has to offer.
