C.A, P.P - Director
Trudi grew up on a dairy farm just north of Whangarei. She went to Northland Polytechnic to attain her Chartered Accounting qualification. Trudi is married to Pete and they have two teenage children. They moved to Te Puke in 2001 where she started working at BRG. In 2003 Trudi became a partner and in 2012 became the sole owner of the business, until April 2014 when Martin also joined Trudi as an owner.
Dairy Farm accounting is a real passion for Trudi. She has been able to take the practical knowledge gained from growing up on a dairy farm and apply that when talking to her clients. Trudi sees an important role is to come up with practical and innovative solutions to help her clients through the challenges and joys of owning and operating a business.
During her spare time Trudi enjoys reading, relaxing by the beach in summer, skiing in winter and tramping - though with two teenage children that spare time can sometimes be limited!
2016 has seen Trudi awarded with the prestigious Fellowship Award by CAANZ. The award recognises members who are role models for trusted leadership in business and finance.
