Who's the Smith

Blair Smith, Chartered Accountant

Blair Smith has 16 years’ local experience in helping business owners become more successful.

Blair was formerly a Principal with a loyal client base at Crowe Horwath/WHK (previously known as Sherwin Chan & Walshe).

Blair realised that clients valued highly the personal consistency and interest he brought to all his clients and decided that the only way to continue providing a personal service was to set up his own company with Ben.

Blair’s advisory skills are put to great use in assisting clients with straightforward advice after a thorough financial analysis.

Blair can remember most details of the complex affairs of all his clients and can explain any technical aspect in plain English to anyone, which has earned him the respect of his loyal client base.
