Staples Rodway announces two new Directors
National accounting and business advisory firm Staples Rodway is growing and has announced two key promotions among its senior staff, Sachin Patel and Kaison Chang have both been named Directors in the Auckland office, less than 18 months after their promotion to Associate Director and just 10 years after joining Staples Rodway as graduates in March 2008.
While both have enjoyed parallel success, each specialises in a different area of the business. Mr Patel is an Audit and Assurance Director, specialising in auditing, financial reporting and consulting services. His clients include listed businesses across a wide range of sectors such as property, ICT, retirement and manufacturing, and he also has experience working with Staples Rodway affiliates in Australia.
“Building relationships with other people is very important to me,” Mr Patel says.
“I’ve worked really hard to demonstrate leadership and develop good relationships with my team as well as the organisations we work with.”
As a business advisory specialist, Mr Chang excels in providing business advice to companies, trusts and high net worth individuals. He has a passion for the property sector and in helping new ventures grow strategically. He too believes that success is not created in a vacuum.
“In my career I’ve had great mentors who gave me the skills to work smarter, and the support of my family has been vital. I believe this promotion gives me the opportunity to help grow our future leaders.”
Staples Rodway managing director David Searle says both new directors exemplify the values of the firm, encouraging others to give back to their communities and always demonstrating integrity.
“We want people who demonstrate leadership, and build good relationships that make a real difference,” he says.
“Sachin and Kaison have both worked really hard to become our two youngest directors, showing a commitment to our clients and our team that’s both a real inspiration to the next generation, and a tremendous asset to the business.”
