Tracey Murray  |  Associate

Born and schooled locally, Tracey joined Shand Thomson in 1998. Her 20+ years history with the firm has seen her work in a senior capacity with Brian Dodds, both Jim & Susie Johnstone and latterly Bill Thomson.  For many years a senior client manager, Tracey was appointed an Associate of Shand Thomson in 2016. 

Tracey has expertise with DIY software and works with clients on all aspects of taxation and business valuation and planning.  She has a special interest in taxation and participates in a special interest taxation group.  Tracey also leads our in house technical training and is involved in developing system responses to new and changing legislation.

A great role model for our newer staff, Tracey completed her Bachelor of Business degree and post graduate studies in accountancy through the Open Polytechnic and has also attained CA status with Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand - all achieved while working full time and raising her young family. 

Tracey is a strong supporter of community groups and is currently a member of the Board of Trustees at St Joseph's School.  She is the treasurer of the school finance committee and fulfils this role for two local churches too.

Tracey and Chris have three young children - Katie, Hannah and Logan - and when time permits the Murray family enjoy escaping to Te Anau.  Tracey also manages to fit in running regularly and 'enjoys' 6 am daily gym classes.
