Christchurch team news 2017 – endings and beginnings

Moore Stephens Markhams Christchurch starts the New Year with some new beginnings and endings. It is with a heavy heart and fond wishes that we farewell Moore Stephens Markhams’ valued Directors Richard Ineson and Andrew Brady, who are both retiring at the end of the March.

Richard has been an integral part of the business for the last 34 years, with numerous accomplishments under his belt. Our avid sailor/captain looks forward to spending more time out on the water, travelling and gardening. He is also competing in this year’s World Masters Games – we’d wish him luck, but we know that he won’t need it given he’s still racing (and beating) 20-year-olds in the Laser and Zephyr classes.

Andrew has spent the last 11 years working closely with clients and shaping a reputation for innovative business advice and strategic support. All of this being bookended of course by his numerous athletic achievements and winters spent skiing. His self-imposed succession plan includes working towards a position as a Senior Executive within a business – we wish him well in this pursuit, with his time at Moore Stephens Markhams ticking off a huge step towards realising this.

But it’s not all farewells – we also have some exciting promotions, with congratulations going out to Layton Matheson who is stepping into the role as Director on Andrew’s leaving.

Layton joined us in 2014, and has progressed quickly from the role of Manager; he is now working alongside Andrew to ensure a seamless transition and brings with him a wealth of experience in transport, tourism, property investment, residential construction, and the professional service industry. He also has a broad range of experience across most industries occupied by small-to-medium-sized New Zealand businesses, and has all the hallmarks of being an excellent Director.
