Meet the team
Greg was raised in Northland and attended Whangarei Boys’ High School before qualifying from Auckland University in 1973 with a BCom and as a Chartered Accountant in 1975.
During his career he has worked in both Chartered accountancy and in the commercial sector, including a financial and management role in an international manufacturing company.
In 1986 he started Palmas Ltd to focus on accounting services which in 2007 began trading as Auckland Chartered Accountants along with Johan Theunissen. Greg has worked with clients in a range of industries and provides management accounting services when required which is an area of special interest to him.
Johan qualified as a chartered accountant in South Africa in 1988. He lectured for 9 years at the University of South Africa in the Department of Auditing before entering public practice.
The family moved to New Zealand where he qualified as a New Zealand chartered accountant in 2007. He was fortunate to meet Greg Mason from Palmas Ltd and they have since joined to practice as individual companies under the same trading name, Auckland Chartered Accountants.
Johan is married to Anna-Marie and they have been blessed with 3 boys. Outside of office hours, he enjoys watching rugby and playing squash, golf and tennis socially. He is a member of his church’s Finance Committee and involved with the audit of various charitable organisations.
Megan previously worked in the taxation area of an international accountancy firm and an Asian-Pacific Corporate. Whilst raising (with her husband) two children and a terrier, she did contract accounting for the hospitality industry, and is very familiar with the issues small and medium sized businesses face.
Callum joined the team in 2012 and is a Chartered Accountant with a Accountancy degree from Massey University. Callum has worked in various roles for the firm over the years and has a strong interest in the area of taxation, property, and business advisory. Outside of work Callum enjoys skiing, motorcycling and fishing.
