Carl Watkins & Philip Smith have partnered with Shiralee and Craig since the early beginnings of Gunson McLean back in 1994.

Carl owns and manages the Whangarei stores, while Phil owns and manages the KeriKeri store. Along with their teams the pair are experts in anything related to the outdoors.   Their friendly teams are always on hand to help those people who frequently enjoy hunting, fishing, diving, camping and tramping. They make sure their customers are properly prepared to enjoy what they set out to do, successfully and safely.

Both Carl and Phil meet regularly with Shiralee to review and manage their financial and taxation information, and chew the fish on the future strategy and direction of their businesses.

Business advisory plays an important part in the success of all businesses, and we love being an integral part of seeing our clients’ businesses grow from strength to strength. It is great to witness both these Hunting and Fishing stores as they develop and establish themselves as the providers of Northland’s largest range of hunting and fishing products available. You will always see Carl and Phil on the shop floor, helping and advising their customers with the best products for them. Their wealth of knowledge in this industry is second to none – keeping their finger on the pulse of their business ensuring it continues to thrive and grow.

As business advisors, we see our role within their business is to assist them to keep growing and moving forward while retaining their personal enjoyment and satisfaction in these forever changing times.
