Sean holds a Certificate of Public Practice from the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants, meaning he is authorised to offer accounting services to the public.

Sean has worked in the firm for the past 19 years, qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 1992.

He spent 2 years working in London for a French bank as a Management Accountant, and was the Financial Controller for an advertising agency. Prior to this Sean worked in New Zealand for AMP and the NZ Motor Corporation as a Management Accountant.

"What I enjoy most about being a Chartered Accountant is helping my clients achieve their goals", says Sean.

In his spare time Sean enjoys singing and performing on the stage. However, with the birth of his first child in June 2009, the amount of spare time he now has is a lot less than what it used to be !
