Stephanie Wylde

Business Advisory, Senior Consultant, Taranaki

Stephy is a Senior Consultant in Business Advisory who joined the firm in 2016 upon her return to New Zealand. Prior to joining Baker Tilly Staples Rodway, she spent 13 years working in London in a wide range of industries such as Pharmaceuticals, IT and Media.  She has a wealth of financial reporting experience and has managed teams in both Financial Controller and Finance Director roles. Prior to London she was at Ernst & Young, Auckland for 3 and a half years in a corporate services audit role where she qualified as a chartered accountant.

Stephy attributes her time in audit as providing her with a strong foundation, a focus on process improvement and always ensuring we add value to our clients.  In London she has been the finance lead on several finance and procurement system implementations as well as many change initiatives such as the offshoring of finance activities and roles.  She loves assisting organisations that are going through change and lives by the ethos we need to be flexible in our approach to best serve our client’s needs.

Stephy has been able to shape her role since starting at Baker Tilly Staples Rodway. She was based full time at an oil and gas client in both an IT implementation and financial reporting role for the first two years.  Since then she has been working on a variety of projects with clients.

Stephy currently is one of our not for profit experts and assists charities and societies in an advisory capacity and with their financial reporting compliance under the new accounting standards framework.
