Our People

The McKenzie+Co team

We are a great team that loves working together in a friendly, fun and open environment.

This is the McKenzie+Co team on one of our annual social club outings. Keeping to our theme of Rambo / Camouflage, we dressed up and took a trip to Dunedin where we completed an Amazing Race challenge. What better people could you enjoy dressing up, dancing and singing with (what happens on tour, stays on tour)!

The Director

Fraser McKenzie

Fraser’s passion is anything rural. He has been specialising in farm accounting and advisory work for 25 years. “Rural businesses are different, to get it right you need to understand the nature of farming and the people involved, it is complex, the business of the family is intertwined with the family business.”

While all aspects of the work are challenging, Fraser particularly enjoys getting the structure and governance of rural businesses right, making sure time is spent planning with clients, not only for those who may be looking for succession options, but those starting their farming careers and wanting to progress.
