BWR is proud of its history and origins dating back to the early 1900’s, and we’re also proud to say we’re still a 100% locally owned and operated Hawkes Bay business. Like a number of the families we act for, we’ve been around for a long time, our feet are well and truly cemented in the heart of this fantastic region, and we plan to be around supporting business in the Bay for a long time to come.
Although the firm has evolved over the years and personnel have come and gone, the underlying values of respect, trust, and a total commitment to service and support have never changed. This commitment to helping our clients build a better life, and our desire to walk alongside our clients as they take their unique journey is why we have clients that stay with us generation after generation.
Brown Webb Richardson Ltd was formed in 2002 by the merger of two remarkably longstanding Hawke's Bay Chartered Accountancy firms. This combined the two very like cultures of Richardson Epplett and Partners (originally formed as McCulloch Butler and Spence in 1907) and Brown Webb Limited (originally formed as R D Brown and Co in 1921).
