Our Services



MCI Advisory offers a focus on family & corporate governance, business strategy, intergenerational transition/business succession, deal structuring, raising capital and formation of equity partnerships.


We believe that privately owned NZ businesses are currently facing a tidal wave of forced regulation. Because of this there is a need for greater independent advisory skills to support privately owned businesses to make good strategic decisions. Further to this, businesses are finding the process of raising capital more and more challenging hence the need for skilled independent professionals who can help business owners improve the attractiveness of their business for capital. Since the accountant is the most trusted advisor for this support to come from, we believe the mix of advisory and accountancy works harmoniously together.


Sean Stafford leads our advisory team. An experienced corporate banker with 17 years of banking leadership and deal structuring experience, Sean previously specialised in large scale agricultural businesses.


In the last 10years Sean has been a Regional Manager for ANZ leading the Wairarapa Tararaua Commercial and Agri Banking team. Alongside this Sean has also led the Agri Corporate Banking team for the ANZ Central Region for the past 2 years. Sean has an extensive network across the wider business community in the Lower North Island.


Sean is extremely skilled in leading teams, mediation coaching and facilitation, business strategy, deal structuring, raising finance intergenerational business transition and business governance.


MCI & Associates are thrilled to have Sean on board, and we are excited to be able to provide such a high level of advisory support, not seen in the Dannevirke and Tararua region.
