We welcome you to the firm that is as committed to Central Otago as you are and if you need some help in almost anything financial we invite you to get in touch.




The firm was originally founded by Fred Dunn, a former Mayor of Cromwell, after the Second World War. Some of his clients remain clients of Mead Stark to this day.


Fred was subsequently bought out by Dunedin-based Cowan & Morton in the mid-1960s and it was as an employee of Cowan & Morton that Peter Mead joined the firm in Cromwell in 1970. In 1976 the Dunedin partners of Cowan & Morton decided to amalgamate with a national practice enabling Alastair Stark to part ways with Cowan & Morton and join Peter Mead in partnership in Cromwell, establishing what was one of New Zealand’s longest continuing accounting partnerships.


The firm has grown from just the 2 partners and 1 staff member to 9 staff, with clients, spread across Central Otago, New Zealand and around the world.


Matthew Shand and David Stark have taken over from Peter and Alastair, to continue to provide solutions, services, and value.


With over 40 years of history in the region, the firm has witnessed a huge amount of change and is proud to be in a unique position to help clients meet the changes to come.
