Great futures

Many of our directors and partners started in the graduate program. At Baker Tilly Staples Rodway you will be provided with great opportunities to achieve your personal and professional goals.

David Searle

Managing Director, Auckland

David is a testament to just how far you can go with Baker Tilly Staples Rodway. He joined our Audit team fresh out of Auckland University, and hasn’t looked back since. He had a stint working in Chicago with one of our Baker Tilly affiliate offices, has been a president of the NZ branch of the CPA and is now running the show in our Auckland office.

Carolyn Jackson

Director, Taranaki

Our Taranaki office snapped up Caroline while she was still studying at Waikato University, offering her paid holiday work. After qualifying as a CA, she took long-term leave for her OE, returning to the fold two years later. Carolyn is a classic example of how you can have it all, being both an Audit and Taxation Director, as well as mum to three busy children!

Sharyn Bell

Director, Waikato

Sharyn’s career with Baker Tilly Staples Rodway illustrates the opportunities available to those inspired to make a difference. She joined our Waikato office after graduation and is now a BAS Director. As well as being one of our star performers, she makes the most of her professional skills to make a difference in the community through the Waikato Sunrise Rotary Club.

Kaison Chang

Director, Auckland

Kaison graduated from the University of Otago in 2007 and started with Baker Tilly Staples Rodway in 2008 as a Graduate before spending time in Toronto, Canada. Since returning to the Auckland office in 2013, Kaison has worked with a number of large privately held companies, SMEs and high wealth individuals across a broad range of industries and became a Director of Baker Tilly Staples Rodway in 2018, only 10 years after starting as a Graduate.
