Sheppard & Ormsby

Sheppard & Ormsby

Our favourite people to work with are ambitious & driven, using their creativity and expertise to craft services which add value not just a margin.

We love working with those looking to build a more than one a year relationship with us, seeing us a part of their team and a trusted advisor.

There has been an accountant in our office for 20+ years.  First established by Gordon Sheppard and superbly run by Jenny Ormsby since 2005.

Bronwyn took over the reins in February 2022. We’re very proud to be building on the enviable legacy of Sheppard & Ormsby and taking it into the future.

Meet The Team

Chartered Accountant & Director | Rangiora


Raised in the Manawatu (Ashhurst to be precise) but chose to make her home in Canterbury – the weather’s better. Bronwyn’s desire to have the best of both worlds, balancing living in the South Island with quality family time in the North Island is to blame for us having offices in both Rangiora and Palmy.
Thanks to her young son, Bronwyn can name over 40 Thomas characters. She’s on the path to FI/RE and loves to bang on about financial independence to anyone who will listen.
She took over the reins from Jenny in February 2022 and we welcome the clients from the accounting firm she founded (Cloud Keepers) to the Sheppard & Ormsby fold.
Accounting Technician | Rangiora


Our long serving (or is that long suffering) Nikki has been with the team since the days of Gordon Sheppard, assisted Jenny through the Ormsby era and is now telling Bronwyn how it is. Nikki whips our clients files into shape and has a blast along the way.
Practice Manager | Rangiora


Is a wonder woman! She used to be one of our favourite clients until it was decided many years ago that we wanted her for ourselves. She also works her magic on the family farm and keeping an eye on her (almost) all grown-up brood. It’s her laugh you can hear from the stairs.
Executive Assistant | Palmerston North


Keeps Bronwyn in line as her assistant which probably should be a full-time job, but she somehow manages to fit it in around her two gorgeous girls. Steph works remotely from Levin (that’s sort of Palmy right?) and makes it all look easy.
Accountant | Bulls


Ellen is our resident newbie and an Aussie – don’t hold it against her! Based remotely in Bulls, Ellen has lived in NZ for a few years now with her two young children and has made an interesting career change from midwife to accountant.

Our Ethos

We are very proud to be Banqer’s first community partner.  For every income tax return we do, we sponsor a kiwi high school student through the Banqer programme.
This is part of our commitment to improve financial literacy for all who come into contact with us, our clients, our staff and that poor unassuming guy next to Bronwyn on the plane!

Banqer is a simulated economy where NZ & Australian primary & high school students can practise and see the consequences of some of life’s money choices. It was developed right here Canterbury.
