About

"No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it."

In running a successful accounting firm, you need great systems and the right technical support but the solid rock that provides the foundation upon which a strong firm is built is the people who comprise it.

The members of our team have been chosen not only for their exceptional skills that enable them to do their jobs at the very highest level but also because they have the right attitude toward their careers.

Meet the team

Each member of our team has been carefully chosen for the passion they show in expressing our vision and the values that are at the heart of the br Wellington philosophy.
