Joanne Ollerenshaw

I have spent the last 38 years either working in Chartered Accountancy or as a Financial Accountant, in Papua New Guinea, London and Auckland. After being back in Chartered Accountancy for approximately 10 years, I decided it was time to get back into the commercial side of accounting so joined the Meridian Group about 5 years ago.  Having experience in both areas gives me a solid accounting background and discipline in my everyday working activities.  I like to be well organised and have information completed in a timely manner.

As well as working I enjoy outdoor activities, especially ocean swimming which I only took up about 15 years ago, when I decided it was time to do a triathlon but realised I couldn’t swim.  I also love to travel and spend time with family and friends.
