Diprose Miller Chartered Accountants has appointed a new associate to its board. The Morrinsville and Te Aroha-based accounting and business advisory firm, has announced Melissa Slattery will join their leadership team, effective immediately.

Te Aroha local and chartered accountant, Melissa will join Anthony Gray as an associate, as well as existing directors Darren Diprose, Keith Miller, Jeanette Clubb, Sharon Coombe and Ed Wagstaff in helping to take the established accounting and business advisory firm in a new strategic direction.

The Directors unanimously agree the appointment is well deserved.

“It’s always exciting to have leadership coming through the firm,” says Keith. “Melissa is a talented and extremely hard-working individual with a long history of combining her passions.”

“Melissa’s enthusiasm for accounting and the dairy farming industry is evident,” says Darren. “As part of the management team, her ideas and practical experience are important to the future of our firm.”

Melissa Slattery
Melissa was brought up on a dairy farm in Te Aroha and later moved to Canterbury with her husband Justin. While in the South Island they were named Sharemilkers / Farmers of the Year in 2015.

The pair returned to the Waikato to pursue their own farming goals on their 100-hectare dairy farm in Te Aroha.

As well as combining her professional growth and development, Melissa has three boys – ranging from six months to six years of age – who enjoy taking her for a bike ride, swimming or camping.

She started working at Diprose Miller in 2004 and – somewhat uniquely – earned her CA qualification while working full time. With extensive knowledge of dairy farming and all things business, she offers practical knowledge for business growth and sustainability.

“I love being part of the community and I’m excited by the opportunity. I am passionate about what I do and enjoy working with a wide range of clients to build trusted relationships so together we can understand their business needs and help them achieve their goals.” said Melissa

Melissa’s appointment as a Diprose Miller associate is effective immediately.
