Gavin initially studied law and architecture at university, before focusing on law and politics and launching his career at the IRD. He joined KPMG’s Tax division in Wellington in 1995. This was followed by a stint at KPMG’s London office (where his clients included the fast-growing easyJet) before the Kiwi lifestyle lured him home. During his 20-year career with KPMG, Gavin has always enjoyed the broader commercial aspects of working with private businesses. In 2010, Gavin brought his wealth of tax experience across to us at Private Enterprise, and was appointed Partner.
