With a passion for the rural lifestyle, Andrew was brought up on a family farm near the east coast of Masterton. He purchased a farm in 1992 with his wife Sarah, and since then he has farmed the land with the help of a very loyal manager and some shepherds. Andrew enjoys equestrian sports and has been involved with the local Wairarapa Hunt Club for many years.
When it comes to his role as Chartered Accountant at ROVA, he truly enjoys establishing and nurturing new businesses and intergenerational family businesses. “ROVA offers a full accounting service, focused on client’s goals rather than compliance. Many of our team are directly involved and experienced in rural business which gives a depth of understanding that you won’t find elsewhere.”
An all-rounder, Andrew studied Accounting, Marketing and French at Otago University in 1984 and graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce in 1985. Prior to becoming a director at ROVA, Andrew started at Woodhouse and Partners in 1989 and was admitted as a Chartered Accountant in 1992. He spent two years as a Chief Financial Officer for a local meat processor and wholesaler.
