MurrayMurray Patchell - Partner, Deloitte Private

Murray is based in the Rotorua office and with 36 years’ experience, has been responsible for guiding some of the most successful Maori land Trusts & Incorporations in the district.  He has a wealth of experience in farming, forestry, property, geothermal and charities sectors. 

A key focus of Murray’s approach that has proved successful is to provide the full back end support to client’s office administration to compliment the front end management support that is also regularly provided. Many clients find that outsourcing this work ensures that they only pay for what they need and they can access skill sets and resources on demand without having to carry the overheads associated with staffing. This approach has enabled Deloitte in Rotorua to develop a high level of competent service providers that are available on call for clients. It is particularly important when organisations have lean budgets and variable needs to have expertise at all levels on tap.
