The Back Room was started by Wayne and Scott Findlay from Findlay & Co Chartered Accountants. Wayne and Scott are brothers and proud of their rural heritage in the deep south of New Zealand (Tuatapere) where they learnt a strong work ethic and resourcefulness at an early stage. Wayne and Scott have built a successful and modern accounting firm, Findlay & Co in Wanaka, New Zealand.

Findlay & Co was started by Wayne in 2002, they were early adopters of Xero and fully converted to Xero at an early date. They have won multiple awards from Xero and have been recognised as industry leaders in New Zealand for the way they run their Firm and for their innovative and proactive approach with clients.

They have had their firm in the cloud for many years now and this enabled them at an early stage to look at outsourcing options. On a training trip to the Philippines Wayne met Mark Stables … (watching a Highlanders Rugby game!). Wayne and Scott had previously thought about setting up their own Outsourcing business but couldn’t perceive how to do this. Mark, a New Zealander who was managing hotels in the Philippines was keen for a change and with his help Wayne and Scott set up The Back Room.
