Shaun Adams - Profile

Shaun moved to New Zealand in 2006 with his wife, Sarah and their two children, starting work with BDO, and then three years later joined KPMG.

He commenced his career in insolvency and restructuring in 1985, working with the Official Receiver’s office and then with large national and regional accounting practices.  Shaun qualified as an insolvency practitioner in 1992, and soon after started taking formal appointments for both personal and company insolvencies.

Since arriving in New Zealand, Shaun continued taking appointments but had very little involvement with personal insolvency due to the nature of the firms he worked with.  In 2016, Shaun retired from KPMG, after heading up its restructuring & insolvency team for eight years, and has been doing consultancy work whilst exploring opportunities to do something different.

After many years of being on the board of Auckland Foundation, he developed a keen interest in “paying something back to society”, and it was at this time, that he and Christine first met and decided to set up Debtfix to help and support people in financial distress, with Shaun applying his insolvency and management expertise of 33 years to the development of Debtfix, and the alternative personal debt solutions so desperately needed in New Zealand.
