Amy Kerr and Associates Limited was formed in formed in 2003, however its origins go a long way further back than that. The business has been a part of the Wairarapa farming, agriculture and commercial scenery for many decades. Over those years new partners have joined and since retired, and along the way the firm has established long standing relationships with the succession of families, particularly within the farming sector.
Stephen Kerr retired in 2017 however Stephen still plays a supporting consultancy role within the practice. Specialising in farming and agriculture, he has supported the rural sector for many decades often overseeing multiple generational farming.
He was joined by Pete Amy in 2001 whom brought a commercial aspect to the firm, focusing on all types of trading businesses, business valuations and audit work. Although the firm ceased audit work in 2016 Amy Kerr and Assoc still provide many types of due diligence and assurances. With a methodical and comprehensive understanding of systems and processes Amy Kerr and Assoc can help achieve business goals and identify problematic areas.
Brian Crump was next on board. Brian along with his father owned their own farm, and know only too well the ups and downs of the industry. After selling the farm, Brian moved into the investment sector, and in conjunction with his hands-on farming experience, he was the perfect candidate to take up the reins from Stephen.
Nathan Haglund joined the practice in 2017. He was formerly a partner with another Masterton accountancy firm, and accordingly brought with him a wealth of experience already. Prior to this Nathan was a senior manager with the local ANZ Bank, back then National Bank, where he oversaw both farming and commercial clients. This provided the perfect backdrop to subsequently becoming a commercial/rural accountant.
