NZ group takes on name of major accountancy network

NZ group takes on name of major international accountancy networks

From 1 January 2013, the Markhams group of accountancy firms located throughout the country renamed as Moore Stephens Markhams to further strengthen its links with one of the world’s major accounting and consulting networks.

The independently-owned New Zealand firms became members of the network in 2010 and had two years to move to the international name adopted by over 300 member firms in more than 100 countries.

“It gave us the opportunity to be sure the synergies and values of Moore Stephens were in line with ours, and now we are confident to make the association more prominent,” says Paul Rickerby, Moore Stephens Markhams national chairman.

“For many of our clients the name change is simply that. We all remain independently-owned and essentially it’s business as usual. However, for our people it means that we have access to the expertise and knowledge of our peers overseas, and as we can offer international opportunities, it helps us attract well qualified employees who are keen to build their careers. Both of these aspects benefit our clients, both directly and indirectly,” Mr Rickerby says.

Moore Stephens Markhams offices are located in Auckland, Hawke’s Bay, Wanganui, Wairarapa, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. The latter firm will retain its current name, Markhams Clarke Craw and will rename in 2016. Collectively, the group has 31 principals and over 170 staff.

Separate audit firms within the group will also be adopting the Moore Stephens name.

Around the world, Moore Stephens has 636 representative offices, employing 21,197 people. The New Zealand group is part of Moore Stephens Australasia, joining eight independent member firms in Australia with 98 partners and more than 750 staff.
