Who We Are
FR Development is a RAN ONE member with a difference! I'm Dave Gaynor, Managing Director and principal consultant of FR Development (Fitzherbert Rowe Business Development Limited).
In 1993, Fitzherbert Rowe lawyers and I established FR Development to assist local businesses and clients to grow and succeed in business. Since then we have assisted over 450 businesses across a broad spectrum of business types.
We are a truly unique consulting firm. I was initially a scientist at the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research with a successful agricultural science programme. In 1985, I was asked to help pioneer the commercialisation of science for DSIR where I developed rare experience in selling advanced science and technology to businesses around the world.
Collectively I have 31 years business experience, with the last 13 years providing advice directly to businesses seeking assistance to grow and succeed. This advice is backed by the business experience of the mainly commercial lawyers at Fitzherbert Rowe who are part of Lawlink, a group of 17 legal offices throughout New Zealand.
To add to this experience, FR Development is a member of RAN ONE, an international network of accounting and consulting firms with members in North America, Asia-pacific, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, who focus on the unique needs of the small-to-medium sized and privately owned businesses. The Network gives us, and consequently you, access to a wealth of exclusive information and resources not available to other accounting and consulting firms.
The RAN ONE Network also brings together over 700 accounting and consulting firms, so that we can draw on the combined experience of all members. Our members work with businesses all over the world, in all industries. Thus, we have the strength and resources of a large, global organisation, while still maintaining our ability to provide personalised service in our local market.
Our uniqueness and network of advisers that we can call on, provides us with the experience, insights and confidence to provide you with the very best of advice so you can succeed in business.
