Jon's dedication to his work may be hidden behind his friendly smile, but it's well known by his clients. And yet he always seems to have time for a chat...
Hi, my name is Jon Hurst
I initially trained in Horticulture, completing the RNZIH Certificate course and spending 15 years as an orchardist, however cyclone Bola forced a rethink and so began a new career as an accountant in 1988. Six years of extra-mural study lead to a Massey business studies degree (accounting major), Chartered Accountancy membership in 1994 and a Public Practice certificate in 1999. I am also registered with CAANZ as a Qualified Auditor.
Born in Te Awamutu, I am married with 3 adult children, 1 son who recently started at primary school, and 2 grandchildren. Away from the office I have a wide range of interests including developing a small farm on the slopes of Mt Pirongia, choral singing, pretty much anything to do with water, and having family adventures.
