A bridge from the past
Bridge – together with its predecessor firms – can trace its history back over 60 years. Bridge’s immediate predecessor, Gilmore Taylor Associates, has been providing chartered accounting services in Whangarei since 2016. The company that exists today was formed by two of its current Directors, Chantal Gilmore and Phillipa Taylor. In 2019 they were joined by Directors Danny Douglas and Karen Bell, and in 2023 Chris Grose joined the team as a Director.
We’re proud of the reputation we hold for investing in our people, and we’ve always actively encouraged our team members to gain their Chartered Accountant (CAANZ) qualification. Our commitment to passing on the knowledge and skills of our senior team to the next generation is reflected in the quality of service our clients receive, and is the reason we enjoy lasting relationships with our clients throughout their business journey.
and a bridge to the future
While Bridge was founded on exceptional accounting services, the business landscape is constantly evolving, and we’re gladly embracing the change.
Accounting compliance is becoming driven by technology, creating new opportunities for business efficiency and growth. Our clients now rely on our expertise not just for accounting and tax advice, but for broader business advisory services that support their continued growth and success.
With a highly qualified and experienced team at the core of our business, Bridge is here to support your business journey well into the future. From starting up or buying a business, through business growth and development, to succession planning and retirement, we’re the rock-solid partner your business can rely on to take you to where you strive to be.
