In November 2010 Moore Stephens welcomed the seven member firms of the Markhams network in New Zealand. With the addition of the Markhams firms, Moore Stephens now has member firms in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, Hawke's Bay, Wairarapa and Wanganui.
The New Zealand member firms comprise 30 Partners, 200 staff and annual turnover in excess of NZ$25 million. The appointment of the Markhams firms is an outstanding result for the Moore Stephens network which has been looking to expand its New Zealand presence for some time.
Of critical importance for Moore Stephens was finding a firm or firms that shared its vision for the future and its commitment to the success of its clients and its people.
The Markhams firms not only meet all these criteria, they also bring to the network extensive technical expertise across a wide range of service areas, deep industry knowledge and a well deserved reputation in their markets for quality work and successful outcomes for their clients.
Moore Stephens is delighted to introduce the Markhams network of firms.
