Maree's previous role was Associate Partner at Findex, an Australasian accountancy firm with 25 offices throughout NZ. Prior to that she was with KPMG London and KPMG Sydney. Her 15 years as a financial statement auditor have given her very detailed exposure to all sorts of investment entities, including property investment and banking entities. It has also given her an eye for detail. Maree is a Chartered Accountant of both the NZ and UK institutes.
More recently at Findex, Maree headed up the New Zealand Compliance function, making the increasing focus on compliance in the property management industry second nature for her.
Maree has headed up Mana Property Management since July 2018 and has handled an incredibly wide range of situations on behalf of owners. She has an exemplary history of Tribunal outcomes, thanks to her deep knowledge of the RTA, her understanding of the judicial process and propensity to prepare!
Maree aims to bring a personal angle to how we care for tenants on behalf of our owners, and to develop trusting relationships with owners so that we may manage their properties efficiently and using our well proven professional judgement. Her goal is for Mana Property Management to be a leader in the New Zealand property management industry.
Maree recently completed the New Zealand Certificate in Residential Property Management.
