Principal and Business Advisory

Bachelor of Commerce, FCA*

"I am proud of the family values deeply rooted in McGregor Bailey and that I'm a second generation owner. The clients and friendships developed over the years, and passionate help we've given to their businesses remain very important to us."
 

I've been a partner at McGregor Bailey for over 30 years. As well as all the usual services you'd expect of an accountant, I offer a tailored specialist business and wealth growth service. My team and I work with owners of medium-sized businesses to help them improve their performance in all areas of the business.  Our strengths are still in the numbers – but helping you get the right numbers through our tools and resources and strategies to deal with the issues. We do this by designing a Client Service plan to specifically meet your needs – with payment by affordable monthly amounts.  You know exactly what services you are getting for the year and what their cost will be.  Refer to our services web page for more details.

Owning a business can be exciting and fulfilling but it also comes with its share of stressors such as managing cashflow and ensuring the company is operating profitably. There can also be issues with staff, operations and sales. I've found that most business owners benefit from having someone to talk to openly about their business, whether it's to discuss concerns, bounce ideas off or assess their current situation. Obviously that person must be qualified and objective. Our aim is to be that trusted advisor who will listen, and work with them to improve and grow their business.

Experience has taught me that clients are looking for three things. One, they need a trusted advisor to provide them with deep insights, and help them through any issues. Two, they need assistance to make improvements and focus on what's important. Three, they are seeking a deeper understanding of what it all means. Having been in business for 30 years myself and worked with a diverse client base, I am well qualified to guide and offer practical solutions in these areas. I can also offer the experience of working for community and professional bodies in various governance roles.

I've been heavily involved with the NZ Institute of Chartered Accountants for many years; helped build sporting facilities at the Herne Bay Rackets Club; am a member of Auckland City West Rotary Club; and Chairman of Pinewoods Motor Camp where our family has a beach house. As former chair of Auckland Rugby League for 12 years, I am pleased to have helped increase their assets from $5m to in excess of $40m.

I am married with two grownup children.

*Awarded a Fellowship by the NZ Institute of Chartered Accountants for high achievement in the profession and in the wider community.

 

*Awarded an MNZM for services to Rugby League in 2013.
