Tight deadlines, reading contracts and wearing high-vis vests – it’s all in a day’s work for Shelley Keery. She brings a whole new specialist skillset to SME Financial, having spent 14 years focusing on assurance auditing. Shelley has managed big teams on major projects like the Waterview Tunnel, the Waitangi Wharf replacement Mackays to Peka Peka Crossing, Wellington Memorial Park and the Christchurch rebuild. She loves the challenges of working across all aspects of a project to help clients review their businesses and improve their procedures.
After a fabulous holiday with her husband, Shelley decided she needed a new challenge, which has led her to become the driving force behind SME’s new assurance department: “I’m looking forward to delivering an excellent and reliable service for my clients, to help them get the most out of their contracts.”
In addition to her assurance work, Shelley has been a Chartered Accountant for 25 years and has worked in the areas of auditing, business advisory and taxation.
