John arrived in Marlborough in January 1983 after a compulsory overseas travel stint and has been involved in Chartered Accountancy for over 30 years. He considers Marlborough as home now.

Initially John specialised in farm accounting and tax because of his family's farming background and he still acts for a large number of farming clients, many of whom have diversified into the wine industry.
John spends most of his time now working with clients on a wide range of business and financial planning matters including setting up and reviewing business structures, estate planning, advising on the use and administration of family trusts, reviewing bank financial facilities and  debt restructuring options and assisting with the feasibility and set up of new business opportunities.

When not at the office John enjoys mountain biking, snow skiing, boating and fishing, tennis, chilling out in the Marlborough Sounds, travelling and spending time with his family. John is married to Mary and they have two adult sons that keep them cash poor but rich in experiences. They love them dearly.
