2010 Awards Night
Wayne Bailey, B.Com, C.A.
Christchurch born and bred, Wayne graduated B.Com from Canterbury University. Wayne has 35 years experience as a Chartered Accountant and is a member of the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (NZICA). Wayne joined Geoff Angus as a partner at Taurus Group in April 2000 bringing with him his accounting team from his previous chartered accountancy practice.
Wayne specialises in corporate restructuring, finance proposals and succession planning. He sees his role as that of a coach, or mentor, to those he works with. “I ask my clients to think ahead to where they want to be - whether it be retirement planning or wealth creation - then work alongside them to help them achieve their goals,” he explains.
Wayne believes strongly in the importance of putting something back into his community, and does so by serving on the board of charitable trusts, the Young Designer Awards and Floyds Charitable Trusts. He’s director of several private companies including Gold Band Finance Limited and enjoys working with his clients and the team at Taurus to achieve their success.
