Changes at All Accounted For
Just a quick note to update our valued clients about recent team members changes at All Accounted For.
As many of you will be aware, Suzanne Donoghue-Hunt, our previous Office Administrator headed home to the Yorkshire district of the UK 3 weeks ago to assist with caring for her allying Dad.
Stepping in to fill the void left by Suzanne is our new saviour, Kirsten Bell. Kirsten (email@example.com) has recently returned from New Zealand after spending a few years in Edinburgh. Kirsten is already having a positive impact on the team and should also have a positive impact on our golf team (keen golfer).
Kirsten will be able to help out with any of those day to day queries you might have.
Business Services Manager
On Friday, Dylan Guitry, one of our three Business Services Managers, has moved on, heading north. Dylan had been a member of the team since 2014.
While we wish him well, he was a Chiefs supporter! So we’ve taken the opportunity to replace him with a Hurricanes supporter. Viktor Zgomba, born and breed kiwi living in Lower Hutt, will join the team as our replacement Business Service Manager from the 4th of July 2017.
Viktor has been providing public practice accounting services for 10 years, with a strong background in providing services across property, retail and the not for profit sectors.
Sarah Toner & Allison Henderson, our two other Business Services Managers, having been with us since 2011 & 2012, are holding the fort. So if you have any queries that you would have usually sent through to Dylan, please email or call Sarah (firstname.lastname@example.org), Allison (email@example.com) or myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will be more happy to resolve your queries. Between the three of us, we across all the current circumstance of clients that were looked after by Dylan.
We look forward to introducing Viktor to you all in early July 2017.
Graduate Accountant Intern
A couple of weeks ago, Jude Di Giacomo joined us from the town of Glen Mills, Pennsylvania, USA on a 10 week international intern scholarship. Part of Jude’s study at Susquehanna University involves international travel to understand accounting approaches in other countries.
We have introduced Jude to Xero and our GST system. Online accounting is still a relatively novel idea for small business in the US. While Xero has clients in the USA, most of those clients are in California, with growth just starting on the east coast in New York.
Jude is enjoying the kiwi culture. Having taken him to first rugby game, he understands what a religion it is here in NZ. He’s loving the cold weather, though not as much snow as back home (keen skier).
