Wendy Somerville

Director, PwC New Zealand

Wendy enjoys working with people and finding solutions in her role in the PwC Restructuring team, where she takes liquidation appointments across the South Island, Waikato and Bay of Plenty.

Wendy joined PwC in 2007 bringing a wealth of experience. She has worked for over 30 years in a Chartered Accountants office and since 2001 has specialised in insolvency work, working closely with receivers and liquidators and taking liquidation appointments since 2015.

Wendy’s experience includes in-depth management of debtors, creditors, payroll, trust accounts, debt collection, staff and in the preparation of financial statements and associated tax returns. This wide-ranging experience provides the ideal tools for the investigative and procedural nature of business recovery work.

The area of business recovery work can often be highly stressful and emotionally charged for all parties. Wendy brings empathy in a professional, calm and methodical manner, which can assist greatly in finding a solution in a difficult situation.

Wendy enjoys travelling with her work and takes all the opportunities to explore New Zealand walks and bike tracks throughout our beautiful country.
