People who can do it for you …
Kevin Murphy CA
I started my working life in public practice in Henderson in 1975 and after spending a few years in the public practice environment took a leap across to the corporate world and spent through til 1986 in the commercial environment working both in public and private companies. By 1986 I had decided that my future lay in the Chartered Accountancy world as I enjoyed the variation and challenges that this brought with it. I joined an accountancy practice in 1986 and while all my previous partners have since retired I now find myself along with Andrew responsible for the day to day activity of that practice I joined in 1986.
We enjoy the benefits of being a small team that can turn it's hand to any assignment. We have a varied client base and with technology we find we can assist clients both in and outside the Auckland region.
More recently I have joined the Mindshop business development group and I now enjoy getting alongside my clients building their businesses. I reside in Red Beach just north of Auckland and really enjoy being able to get out of Auckland central for the weekends.
In sport I still have the passion for a game of golf and have been a member of Helensville Golf Club since 1975, though those years I have seen roles of auditor, general committee and more recently Club Captain and currently President.
My skill set I feel is entrenched in the years of experience that I bring to the table, as times change and technology starts to complete all the mundane tasks the accountants role is becoming more that of mentor, advisor and facilitator.
