About

Herbert Morton has been providing management advice, accounting and taxation services to individuals and businesses of all sizes throughout the Waikato region and New Zealand for over 30 years.

Located on the Waikato River, in the historic Souter House, directors Nicola Adam and Kyle Owens have a vast range of experience in Chartered Accountancy and business advisory.

The name Herbert Morton derives from the two founding Directors of the business – Keith Herbert and Peter Morton.

Keith and Peter moved up from Tokoroa where they were working and established in Cambridge in September 1985. The office was originally located above NZ Post shop in Duke Street. In September 2008, the firm moved to Souter House, near the high level bridge in Cambridge.

In 1998 we established a second office located in Carterton.

Niki Adam and Kyle Owens both become directors of the firm in 2016.

The Herbert Morton team has been growing over the years and we currently have 28 team members.
