Our History

Stem was originally established as The Business Results Group in Te Puke in 1994, we’ve been focused on providing world class service from the beginning.  A client advisory board was held and clients were asked the vital question – “forget how accountants have traditionally served you, what are your needs and wants? What parts of your business are keeping you awake at night?” Client feedback led to the complete redesign of services and standards.

Nearly 26 years on and with a team of 13, Stem has expanded and evolved at a similar rate to many of the original and now highly successful clients.
