Bentleys expands its regional footprint with NZ opening

Bentleys expands its regional footprint with New Zealand opening

NEW ZEALAND, 12 August 2014: Bentleys, Australia’s fastest growing network of independent accountants, today announces its expansion into New Zealand, with the opening of an Auckland office.

Bentleys New Zealand has been launched by Nick Den Heijer and Roger Thompson looking to create a local firm that is able to provide services and solutions for clients between the two regions.

Combined, Mr Den Heijer and Mr Thompson, bring over 50 years of experience in taxation, accounting and business advisory across a range of sectors in the New Zealand market, both leaving Staples Rodway to open Bentleys flagship New Zealand office.

Mark Chapman, Executive Officer of Bentleys Australia, says the development fully recognises the increasing trade and investment flowing between the two countries, and affirms the growing trans-Tasman client business across a range of services and solutions.

“A direct presence in New Zealand enables us to provide seamless accounting and business advisory services to an increasing number of our clients who are expanding regionally.

“Bentleys is strengthening its position as a mid-tier accounting firm with a defined regional growth plan. We’re on track to reach our strategic target of a presence in 20 urban locations across the region by 2018.

Mr Thompson and Mr Den Heijer said joining the Bentleys’ brand is an exciting opportunity and the Auckland office will capitalise on the changes the New Zealand accounting profession has experienced over the last few years.

“The accounting profession is facing significant changes, both in New Zealand and Australia. Nick and I saw an opportunity to build a firm using innovative technologies and smarter infrastructure which will deliver efficiencies and value for our clients,” Mr Thompson said.

“The Bentleys brand and vision resonate with us. The agreement means we have flexibility over direction and growth of the business, while being able to offer our clients the benefits of strong expertise and services across the ANZ market,” said Mr Den Heijer.

The New Zealand office will open with a full complement of experienced staff and a robust client portfolio in property development and construction, investment and financial services, professional services, IT and childcare sectors.

“More and more our clients are looking for regional services and representation; we are acting on this demand with geographic expansion and through our close ties with other members within our international network Kreston,” Mr Chapman said.
