Glennis Stuckey – Director

NZBAI Certified, Xero Advisor Certified, Xero Payroll Certified and WorkflowMax IT Setup Partner/Certified Advisor

A born and bred entrepreneur, Glennis leads the Katalyst team. Her first bookkeeping role was at 21, when her parents owned the BP in Tuakau and she managed the ledgers manually. She is a Xero Certified bookkeeper, and is expert in a range of affiliate programmes, such as WorkflowMax.

Glennis has studied office systems and business computing and, before starting Katalyst, worked in stock control, trade and retail sales, customer service and IT roles. In 2008, Glennis established Katalyst and, since then, the business has grown largely on the strength of referrals from satisfied clients.

As well as owning Katalyst, Glennis is a seasoned property investor and loves all things boats and cars –  the boat is pretty much at Waiheke all weekend and the work car gets thrashed around Pukekohe from time to time (Mazda MPS).
