Managing Director Wayne Costello and School Accounting and Support Services Owner/Manager Warwick Turner are very excited about the complementary strengths of both businesses positioning the company well as it responds to an increasing demand for its specialist school accounting services throughout the upper North Island.
The 1 July timing of the Whangarei office opening also marks the fifth year of establishing an office in Rotorua. The first of our Northern offices has been a spectacular and gratifying success Costello says. From a starting position of 18 clients in July 2001 by July 2006 it will have exceeded 118 clients which marks Rotorua as the office with the company's largest client base.
The Whangarei initiative strengthens the total client base for school accounting to more than 450 Primary, Intermediate and Secondary schools, which translates to 1 in every 4 North Island school partnering with Education Services Ltd. A statistic to be proud of says Costello who is quick to identify the great staff throughout the company as key to the wonderful reputation the business has earned from the education community. It is pleasing that the company has been able to develop and nurture such a wonderful team who have worked professionally and tirelessly to grow the business from its launch in 1989 at the outset of Tomorrows Schools.
The Wanganui based Property Management Services arm of the company also continues to thrive with its specialist knowledge of school property making it a valuable resource for Trustees with their need for 10-year Property Plans and architectural/works supervision.
A recent addition to the range of services provided by the company has seen the emergence of Health, Safety and Environmental Services. Market research identified such a need which is now being delivered in association with specialists that are expert in this field.
