Carole Pedder

PKF Withers Tsang | Director

For twenty years I’ve worked as a chartered account and business consultant and my clients appreciate my genuine interest in their businesses. I help my clients to see the big picture and think strategically about the future.

Key to my success are the strong relationships that I’ve built over time with my clients, many of whom have been with me for over 18 years, across all industry sectors from Manufacturing, Real Estate to the Arts. My skills have helped businesses in crisis situations navigate the rough and tumble of the current economic environment. I have a reputation as a straight talker and have at times stood up for the underdog.

Tax law is one of my specialties. I was recently awarded a Master of Professional Business Studies (Taxation) with Distinction from the Auckland University of Technology and was admitted to the Beta Gamma Sigma International Business Honours Society AUT Chapter. I’m on the executive committee of the Estate and Tax Planning Council of New Zealand.

Since 2009 I’ve been a partner at Withers Tsang and have focused on not only serving the Business sector but also the Arts sector, working with entertainers, performers and related industries. I am chairperson of the Te Taonga Toi O Aotearoa Trust (Artists Open Studios) and a former trustee and chairperson of the New Zealand Comedy Trust.

After hours I enjoy painting, coastal walks and spending time with my husband, Mark, and teenage son, Terence, in our Devonport home.
