Congratulations to our resident hockey star, accountant Katrina Whatmough. Katrina plays fullback for Waitakere Hockey, and has received her team’s Most Valued Player award and the club’s Women’s Player of the Year award for 2014. In addition, Katrina was nominated for and is now a finalist for a Sport Waitakere Excellence “Sporting Acknowledgement” Award, to be announced on 28th November. We’re thrilled that Katrina’s skills on the hockey field have received this recognition and wish her the very best for the award ceremony later this month.
We have said farewell to Auditor Neo Batagodage, who has left us to spend time with family in Australia. Although only with us for a short time, Neo was an integral part of the Audit department and we wish him all the best for the future.
After a frantically busy year, several UHY staff members have redeemed their Airpoints and Fly Buys and taken some well-deserved time off to travel the globe on exciting adventures. Those of us not lucky enough to board a plane recently have been hearing about long haul trips to London, family fun in Disneyland, cultural experiences in Singapore, stunning scenery in Montenegro, and biking trips on Royal Enfield 350cc motorbikes around India!
