Bev Stott joined the WK Christchurch team as part of the merger with Hargreaves in October of 2021. Her role as a Consultant will encompass assisting all Hargreaves clients with the transition to WK Christchurch.

She has a wealth of experience to add to the talent at WK Christchurch, spending 18 years as a Director at Hargreaves, and 30+ years at the firm in total. Her area of expertise falls within the small and medium enterprises (SME) area.

She loves living in Christchurch, mostly for the sunshine hours we get, and has been here for 30+ years. She grew up in Dunedin, going on to achieve her Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Otago, followed by her CAANZ shortly after. She then spent most of her 20’s in the UK, garnering both work and life experience while she was there.

One of her highlights from her time overseas was cycling from Paris to Athens on a budget of 20 British Pounds per week. Nowadays she’s more about the glamping lifestyle – a few years ago she would have said tramping! She also enjoys reading, philosophy, working on personal growth,  supporting either the Crusaders or Highlanders (depending on who’s winning) in her time outside of work.

Bev prides herself in having provided first-class service and advice to a loyal client base during her tenure at Hargreaves, something she looks forward to ensuring continues under the WK Christchurch name.
