William Buck New Zealand has appointed three new directors to start the 2023 year.

Courtney West, Diana Li and Brian Cao have been promoted to the position of Director within the local Business Advisory team. These promotions boost the number of directors in New Zealand to 15.

Courtney West advises clients on tax issues and business structuring and planning, with a particular interest in the health industry. Starting as a graduate with the firm, she has quickly ascended to now be an integral part of a growing senior leadership team.

Diana Li and Brian Cao have established experience in the business and tax advisory space working with national and international businesses. Diana advises clients on property tax issues and business structuring and has a special interest in litigation support work. In addition to business and tax advisory services, Brian provides outsourcing services to clients and works with multinational companies from Europe, US and Asia when establishing their businesses in New Zealand.

These promotions demonstrate the firm’s commitment to promote from within where possible and develop staff to their full potential. All three are based in our Auckland office and have an exciting future and role to play as the new generation of directors at William Buck.
