Sharon Crocombe-Woodward, Partner of CW Chartered Accountants Limited

Certificate of Public Practice (CPP), member of the Australia and New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (CA ANZ), Chartered Accountant (CA) with a degree in Business (B Bus).

With over 30 years’ experience, and 15 years spent supporting business owners as a chartered accountant, Sharon Crocombe-Woodward is a valued and trusted advisor to her clients. 

Raised on a Waikato farm as one of five children, Sharon became aware then of how the weather, global demand and politics impacted on the farm. This unpredictability of livestock values, feed shortage and timing to buy or sell animals meant a cash flow was critical to enable decision making and the long-term survival of the farm.

A wealth of knowledge existed from her late father’s own experience, but he always noted the importance of the trusted rural network. The accountant, the stock agents, fellow farmers and in the early days the Reserve bank were an invaluable source of the current economic climate. Sharon now wishes to ensure a professional network of advisers are available for her own clients.

Sharon has gained a variety of skills and knowledge from employment in the commercial sectors the dairy industry and in food service and also for not for profits. In the later years working in public practice business advisory for large and small employers. Her focus has also included the matching of suitable accounting and payroll software to the client with ongoing training to formulate good accounting practices for the business owners and their staff.

Sharon has always been involved with local charities:

  • A Registered Business Mentor of New Zealand (pro bono)
  • Previous Board Member and Volunteer Chartered Accountant for Music Moves Me Trust. (pro bono)
  • Member of the Waikato Change Management Group.

Sharon looks forward to meeting with you to discuss the areas in which C W Chartered Accountants can empower you to run your business for future success.
