Since joining us in 2004, Tara has become used to wearing many hats. Originally employed to manage our accounts, she did that with such success we had to find her more to do.
Tara has a background and qualification in accounting, but these days loves the variety of the different roles she covers. Tara is also a qualified Customs broker, so when she's not doing accounts or Customs classification, Tara also covers our Australian export operations. Talk about an all rounder!
Tara's passions are her horses, fast European cars, and originally coming from the UK loves the New Zealand lifestyle.
