Flynn O'Meara

Chartered Accountant

Flynn achieved Chartered Accountant status while working at EBP. A strong affinity for technology and solutions led him to branch out on his own after 8 years with the firm.

He spent 18 months developing a successful productivity app which has users worldwide.

The itch for accounting problems never subsided, and he’s returned to EBP to get stuck in. He now divides his time across both fields and continues to take on any opportunity to solve something.

When not working or developing something, Flynn enjoys making use of the many walking tracks around Northland, and dreaming about rebuilding his dad’s vintage “box-of-bits” motorbike.

Being part of a close-knit team of professionals with exceptional levels of skills, as well as a happy, busy work environment, are the main keys to job satisfaction for Julie, and this is reflected in the relationships she has forged with staff and clients over the years.

Hockey is a major part of Julie’s life over the winter months; as a player, Secretary and Treasurer for the Hikurangi Hockey Club, as well as coaching and umpiring her daughter’s team. Family life is equally important to Julie so, although juggling time is second nature, she is relieved when the hockey season is over!
