Chris Waugh

Client Manager, BCom, CA

Chris joins Findlay Sidekick as a senior Chartered Accountant. Chris will be a familiar face to many Wanaka folks. He has been a professional in our town for 15 years; we call him a local!

Chris brings an enormous amount of accounting experience to the team. Accounting has always been his work; he began his career working in private companies then went on to complete his CA degree and never looked back. His wealth of knowledge across many industries and businesses, large and small, is a true asset to our growing team.

Chris is embedded in the Wanaka community through his work with a Charitable Trust, Rotary and the Wanaka Golf Club. He generously donates his time as a Trustee for the Elsie and Ray Armstrong Trust, a wonderful little trust that supports individuals and projects in our town. The Wanaka Golf Club has the largest membership in the South Island and Chris has been Club Captain, in charge of organising tournaments, Club Champs and competitions; a mighty role that sees his name permanently etched in the Club’s history books. Chris jokes it is a sure-fire way to get your name on the wall of the Club House.

Chris lives with his wife here in Wanaka and has a daughter who also works in Wanaka. We are pleased to have Chris on the team; he understands our town, he knows the people, and is a core part of our community.
