Penny Keeber Senior Accountant
Our key senior accountant, Penny Keeber, hails from Whakatane.
She spent 10 years in the deep south of Dunedin, and some time in Whangarei, before the Tauranga traffic and our advertisement saw her make the move back home.
Penny has well over 20 years accounting experience, through a combination of working in CA firms and as an accountant for commercial firms, as well as accounting involvement in the forestry, orchard and bloodstock racing industries.
Outside of work, Penny is a life-long mad keen horse woman, proven by way of the 7 horses she owns. She is passionate about training young or 'green' horses and attends the odd low level events on weekends.
Penny has a adult old daughter, Jessica, who lives and works in Auckland.
As a farmer, Christine understands our business and how farmers and growers operate.
We use Rural Accountants to provide a full accounting service to an orcharding partnership which operates a number of orchards with a wide spread of varieties and management systems. Rural Accountants are always timely and accurate, and their annual financial accounts are extremely easy to understand and very grower-friendly.
Rural Accountants is a real asset to our business.
The team at Rural Accountants pretty much manage all our administrative tasks for the group including payroll and tax planning, ensuring we don’t pay any more than necessary. They are at the forefront of technology and have helped us get up and running with Xero and Figured which is much more efficient than the way we used to work.
Christine is very knowledgeable, great to deal with and knows our business well. She is also a sheep & beef farmer so knows the industry really well and understands our needs.
Rural Accountants keeps us on track through strategic and forward planning meetings throughout the year. Christine knows our business inside out so she can deal with our questions instantly.
