“When it appears there’s no solution, re-define, re-focus and re-think. The solution is always there, it just might look different.”
Director, Tax Services
Having worked with a large scope of clients across numerous countries, Arran has an appreciation for cultural and market nuances that can mean the difference between success and failure. Treating each client as if it was his own personal business, Arran really understands the objectives and perspectives of each individual client. ‘My work has given me a breadth of understanding of the different business and cultural aspects of making the deal a reality’. His unlimited energy ensures the job is always completed on time and on budget.
Undertaking projects in over 30 countries, Arran has used his expertise and global knowledge to assist a number of New Zealand and Asian companies as a director or trustee. Specialising in accessing and maximising new markets, Arran has worked with established organisations from hi-tech to horticulture corporations. He is currently a director for 21 companies. He actively strives to grow and generate business opportunities from New Zealand into Asia.
Equally, Arran relishes the opportunity to connect with investors in Asian markets and to attract them to do business in New Zealand. He finds it both challenging and hugely rewarding to see NZ businesses succeed in the Asian market. Arran has been involved in a number of international corporate restructures and new market entry strategies.
Arran’s ‘can do’ attitude is prevalent in all aspects of his work. He emphasises that the last 5% always takes the longest amount of time but will be well worth it in the end.
