Sean Wallendorf CA
Born in Cape Town, my family left South Africa more than 20 years ago to seek out opportunities in the stunning Aotearoa. I’ll be forever thankful for my family’s sacrifice to enable the vast opportunities presented while living here and being able to live in a country I am so proud of.
My professional background kicked off with one of the big four accounting firms where I spent a number of years project managing team deliverables, performing complex technical analysis, problem solving on a daily basis and mentoring and coaching team members. All the while, I had a strong focus on maintaining and enhancing relationships with my clients.
My experience presented the opportunity to gain international experience with the firm and saw me working in The Netherlands. After living and travelling in Europe I returned to NZ to plan my next steps in taking a career break which lead me to backpacking through South America for a year.
When returning from my travel I had a target list of places that aligned with my larger-than-life, outgoing personality while I still wanted to use my skills acquired in my professional and personal experiences. I approached WE Accounting based on their vision and drive in changing the status quo of what being an Accountant truly means.
I’m a registered Chartered Accountant with a background business degree in Accounting & Finance. I’m here to help clients create answers to questions they didn’t know they had and enable them to feel like WE are part of their team.
Outside of work, I’ve eaten my way around the world. I’ve lived in Bali, spent most weekends travelling while working in Europe, attended a university conference in Tokyo, a school exchange in NYC and backpacked through South America, South East Asia and Europe. Each destination adds to me as a person by broadening my cultural understanding and expanding my multi-cultural perspective.
