MacGregor Jamee Limited

Meet MacGregor Jamee’s Founder

Fiona Harnett is the Founder and Director of MacGregor Jamee.

Fiona strongly believes SME owners should have access to highly skilled executives (who are often only available to large corporates).

And this is the reason why she started MacGregor Jamee:

To enable SME’s to access high calibre help on a more affordable, part-time, or fixed contract basis.

Her personal drive is to help New Zealand SME’s reach their potential in terms of financial performance, strategic planning, and operational effectiveness, through clients better understanding their financial situation so they can make more informed decisions.

Before founding MacGregor Jamee, Fiona spent 20+ years working in CFO and General Manager roles for large organisations such as Vodafone, HealthSource and healthAlliance.  Her career also includes time at Deloitte, DB Breweries and Air New Zealand.
