Meet the team

Karen Wealleans

Has been with the Company for a number of years.  She is the “go to” person for Pat and manages the day to day running of the office. She knows all of our clients very well and makes a real effort to ensure their needs are met and their queries answered.  Karen enjoys spending time with her family.


Pamela Clarke

Has been with the Company now for more than 10 years.  She began working as our front desk lady and has now changed her hours to suit life with two young sons and is our expert on the processing of our tax returns plus numerous other facets that keep her busy both here in the office and working remotely from home.  Pamela is bubbly and friendly and is a great asset to our office. 


Bruce Dobbs

Is another long standing member of our staff.  Bruce has proved an invaluable member of our team.  He is our forensic accountant, always delving deep into tricky files to make sure the final result is spot on. 
Bruce is very sociable and also enjoys mountain biking, playing football and spending time with his family. 



Melt Louw

Melt Louw has a double degree in law and accounting (SA) and is a qualified Chartered Accountant having been admitted to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of New Zealand. Whilst Melt is an experienced commercial accountant in the manufacturing, logistics and freight industries, he has also worked as a taxation consultant for the IRD and in private practice. His interests outside of work are maintaining his fitness, gardening and rugby.  With his legal background, commercial experience, as well as strong business acumen, he can add value to your business by looking beyond just the numbers.


Paul Tilby

Paul works closely alongside Brent and is our Trust specialist. 
He is a very keen golfer and a devoted husband, dad and Papa to his two gorgeous grandchildren. 



Sharon Fisher

Sharon is the friendly face you all see when you walk through the door. She joined the team in June 2016 and is thoroughly enjoying getting know our clients. She lives locally with her husband and youngest son. In her downtime Sharon regularly attends concerts and live theatre, as well as enjoying walking and cycling.


Richard Lyon

The youngest member of our team (by quite a number of years!), Richard brings energy and a fresh perspective. Born and bred in Howick, Richard attended Macleans College, then studied Accounting and Finance at Otago University. On return, he worked for a couple of Auckland businesses as a Financial Analyst and Accountant before joining our team. Richard has many friends in the area who keep him busy when he’s not working or at the gym.


Jim Frear

Jim might be new to our team, but he’s an old hand in the accounting world! Jim ran his own successful Chartered Accountancy business in Manukau for over 25 years, specialising in business development and advice. After a long stint in the UK to be close to children and grandchildren, Jim returned to NZ to enjoy his retirement… or so he thought! Pat had other ideas and, having worked with Jim in the past, persuaded him to come on board, working four days a week. When not working, Jim is a keen cyclist.


Pat Callinan

Pat had an extensive background in Corporate accounting and business before becoming a full time Public Accountant in 1990.  Lots of experience! Pat enjoys working with clients and wants to emphasise this is an easy job with the calibre of staff he is lucky to have.  Any spare time is spent watching as much sport as possible and being Dad to his four children!
