Mark Russell

Technology, Transformation & Simplicity, PwC New Zealand

As a private business partner, Mark loves seeing business owners rewarded for their passion, innovation, creativity and hard work. He understands that there is a lot of hard work behind an individual’s business success, and enjoys working alongside entrepreneurial clients to help them achieve their dreams.

Mark specialises in providing tax advice tailored to the needs of New Zealand privately owned businesses and their owners, from small to larger sized enterprises, many of which have expanded offshore with their unique products and innovations.

Mark also has broad experience working with clients in the property sector, including for listed and unlisted property funds, privately held property vehicles, foreign institutions investing in New Zealand property, and retirement villages.

Mark is recognised as an expert in the taxation of investments, including investments in “PIE” funds and in offshore share investments subject to the “foreign investment fund” rules.

Outside of work, Mark enjoys spending time with his children, and on Saturday mornings is often found on the side lines coaching sports teams. He is also a passionate musician, and enjoys both listening to and making music on his guitar.
