Partner, Private Business Market Sector Leader, PwC New Zealand
As the Private Business Market Sector Leader, Robbie is passionate about building relationships and working closely with his private business clients to really understand their business and help them achieve their goals.
Seeing the difference he and his team can make to these businesses, their shareholders, plus New Zealand (being the land of small-to-medium sized businesses), is a huge part of what drives him in his role. He is also on the executive team for Private Business across PwC Asia / Pacific. In this role he has also worked with various Asian / Pacific Territories and their private clients to both plan and achieve their future goals.
Robbie’s clients range from small to large across a number of industries in the Private Business sector. As a Partner since 1997, Robbie is one of PwC’s most experienced Partners servicing private businesses and their owners. Robbie has a very loyal and longstanding client base – to which he is a “trusted advisor”. His specialties include strategy and planning, trusts, wealth & estate planning, prospective financial models, accounting and taxation. He is particularly interested in services, investment and property. He loves helping clients to develop a well thought out plan, then working with them to ensure a successful implementation.
Keeping a balance in life between work and family is important to Robbie. In his personal time, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife, son and daughter. They are a very active family spending time together practicing yoga, cycling, sailing, skiing and travelling off the beaten track. Robbie loves travelling and including motorbike tours around Asia, hence why he’s also known for serving the best green tea in the office!
