Partner, Auckland North
Lloyd Kirby has been with RSM New Zealand since 1987 and a partner since 2001. Lloyd began his career in our Auckland city office where he built a solid skill base in the traditional aspects of accounting while nurturing an expanding base of inspirational and driven clients.
Over time Lloyd developed a passion for working with his clients to challenge the status quo and look at expanding and growing their business – this approach was so successful, he was appointed as a partner in 2001.
After several years at partner level in the City office, Lloyd was given the opportunity to set up a new office in Albany with fellow partner, Lyle Irwin. To this day, Lloyd and Lyle remain the resident partners of our Auckland North office.
Lloyd thrives on working at a high level without losing sight of the day-to-day reality and continues to work hard for his clients to keep them growing. As well as his client responsibilities, Lloyd is also an active member of NZ CA Limited, is responsible for the production of the quarterly Trial Balance newsletter and is also the training partner for the firm.
In his spare time, Lloyd is an active member in the community and is a longstanding member of Rotary Club of North Harbour where he is currently the Director of Fundraising and Events. Through this Rotary club, Lloyd was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship on 1 July 2014 and a Paul Harris Sapphire in June 2016.
Lloyd completed his Associate Chartered Accountant degree in 1991 at Auckland Technical Institute and achieved his Public Practice Certificate in 2001. He is also a Member of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, a professional association of Chartered Accountants.
With an incredibly strong passion for what he does, and a great team behind him to help meet clients’ expectations, Lloyd is ready to help everyone who approaches him.
