Our People

Howard Dalzell

Originally from England I have lived in New Zealand for over 30 years. I have a diverse background with science and accounting degrees and have over 20 years experience as a chartered accountant. My early experience with what is now PriceWaterhouseCoopers led to my interest in taxation, valuations and helping small to medium enterprises manage their business.

Outside work I enjoy time with my children, follow football especially Manchester United and have an interest in history, science and computing.

I am of Hungarian descent and have extensive accounting experience, specialising in management accounts and taxation, having been a sole practitioner in my home town of Cluj-Napoca.

I enjoy travelling around New Zealand and have a passionate interest in the IT field, good food and fine wine.

Jason Kingston

My career commenced as a graduate with the IRD which gave me a broad exposure to its workings. Now my experience includes working within small and large accountancy practices, including Deloitte. Since obtaining my CA qualification my work now focuses on assisting clients with their businesses especially compliance matters.

Out of the office I enjoy trying to keep up with my young family and spending time with my family and friends.

Adele Haunui
I have been working in the accounting industry for 23 years and have been at Sawden Tax & Accounting since 1994. My responsibilities are office administration and reception.

I am a first time nana to Kahikatea (Kahi), my energetic and gorgeously cute two and a half year old grandson and I take every opportunity to spend time with him.

I walk regularly and do yoga for my body and soul and challenge my mind with Sudoku crosswords.
