Our Directors

John Naylor

Director BCA, FCA

John played rugby until he was 45, which he describes with hindsight as ‘probably a bit stupid’. Equally committed, but far less painful, is the 25 years he’s spent with the same wine club. He’s just as loyal and committed in his professional life, and it's been valued by clients and staff alike for a long time.

Michael Lawrence

Director BBS (Accounting), FCA

Like John, Michael has demonstrated 20 years’ loyal service to his wine club. He loves horse racing, but admits to having a soft spot for the broken down horses living on his lifestyle block. Businesses can expect the same sort of care from him, whether they’re racing fit or in need of some performance help.

Linda Gray

Director BBS (Accounting), FCA, FCIS, FGNZ, IIANZ

Linda is a highland flinging high flyer in more ways than one. Former head girl and young accountant of the year, Linda is also a judge for highland dancing in New Zealand. It all requires a disciplined and organised approach. Just like her work.

Nathan Hopcroft

Director BBS (Accounting), CA

Whether it's chasing a tennis ball on the court, pedalling on his mountain bike or driving on the golf course, exercise-mad Nathan puts in a lot of miles. Thankfully, he’s just as devoted to going the distance for clients too, and loves helping people succeed.

Melanie Changuion

Director BCompt (Hons) (Accounting Sciences), CA

Melanie believes that ‘better never stops’, and she’s always happy to go the extra mile. Melanie’s just as energetic outside of the office as she is about helping clients and staff - her weekend schedule often includes yoga, DIY-ing, playing the piano, cracking open a good book and, of course, firing up the BBQ.
