Pictured L to R: Darren Wright and Clyde Young.
Under Clyde’s leadership, which has spanned six years, the firm has experienced significant growth in turnover, growth in staff and director numbers to over 100 and 15 respectively, growth in our client base across various industries and services and the establishment of an office and team in Tauranga. Clyde will continue working with clients as a director in our Business Advisory team before transitioning into retirement at the end of this year after 33 years with the firm.
Darren continues as a director in our Audit and Assurance team, in addition to his new role as Managing Director.
Darren has been with William Buck for 13 years and believes in open communication and ‘rolling up the sleeves’ at work. In audit and assurance, he has worked with clients in a variety of industries, from not-for-profit organisations to some of New Zealand’s largest public companies. Prior to joining William Buck, he worked for several years as a business coach, where he gained a strong understanding of businesses and industries through the eyes of a business owner.
When announcing the appointment, Clyde said Darren’s desire for success and his competitive nature that pushes him forward to achieve and accomplish his goals makes him a natural choice to lead William Buck New Zealand.
“I am certain Darren will work hard to get the firm to its next milestone and I wish him all the best in the MD role.”
As Managing Director, Darren will also be a board member on the William Buck Australia NZ Board.
