Jason Lougher


I am a chartered accountant, and a director of Legacy Accountants. At Legacy we work closely with clients through their highs and lows, allowing us to share our knowledge and skillset to help them.

Most of my clients are local SMEs, so I have a firm grounding in the local business scene. It was during my work at PricewaterhouseCoopers I realised that my passion was helping smaller, grassroots businesses, and this is the reason I moved home to (either Whakatane or the Bay of Plenty). I will contribute drive, strategic thinking, and the benefit of many years’ accounting experience.

Outside work I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, and supporting fellow business owners across the community. You may have seen a regular ‘Tools Down’ events organised through Whakatane’s Business Spread, as well as updates from the ‘Chronicles of William’. These are just some of the ways I help others de-stress and make new connections.
