November 4, 2019

 

Nexia NZ would like to introduce our new Audit Director, Nathan Breckell. Nathan joined our team this week and comes to Nexia NZ with significant audit and advisory experience gained while working for a global accountancy firm.

Nexia NZ’s CEO, Amy Murdoch says “Nathan is a perfect cultural fit for the Firm, and it is exciting to acquire the skills of such a driven and highly competent Audit professional.”

During this time, Nathan has audited a significant number of diverse entities ranging in size from start-ups to established multi-national regulated companies, both locally and internationally. His international experience includes working with companies in Europe, New Zealand, Australia, America and China.

Nathan is pragmatic and enjoys working closely with his clients to support them to achieve their goals. He has an in depth understanding of best practice controls and processes, and a detailed knowledge of international financial reporting standards (IFRS) and international public sector accounting standards (IPSAS).

The audit landscape is evolving, and technological advancements continue to disrupt the market. As a result, there is greater scrutiny and public expectation of auditors.

Nexia NZ is keen to embrace technology across the Firm to benefit our clients. Nathan sees this as an important factor in audit as well, “I want us to focus on innovation and gain a greater interaction between our people and technology to further enhance our client experience and audit processes. By way of example, the increasing role of data analytics gives us the ability to provide greater insights to our clients more efficiently. Our key focus is on our people, and to ensure they have the skills to navigate the evolving world of audit and continue to meet our client’s needs” says Nathan.
