Moving to Palmerston North in 1985 to study part time at Massey University, Mike commenced working with local practice Pritchard Dilks and Associates that same year. Mike completed a Bachelor of Business Studies and Postgraduate certificate in Education from Massey and in 1990 was admitted to the then Society of Accountants and introduced as a Partner with Pritchard Dilks and Associates.
In May 2015, Mike was awarded 25 year membership of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, and still holds firm to the sound principles learned in Napier when he was first guided on this journey.
