David Ward, Advisory Partner


As a qualified Chartered Accountant for 15 years and Partner with BDO since 2016, I have developed a wealth of experience which enables me to provide real value to my clients.
I am committed to helping clients grow their business by providing useful, practical and sound advice on:

  • Profitability and business improvement,
  • Strategy development and implementation,
  • Budgeting, forecasting and financial modelling,
  • Financial reporting, including special purpose reporting, NZ IFRS and NZ IFRS (PBE),
  • Dashboard Development and internal reporting, and
  • Group structuring and efficiency.

I work with growth companies from all sectors with a particular interest in contracting, manufacturing, import, distribution, technology enterprises and construction.
I have a growing number of not-for-profit and social enterprise clients and can support the specific need of these clients.
