About WGN

In 1974, Melvyn Winburn and Colin Glass spotted a gap in the market for a firm of accountants to offer hands-on support to businesses. With David Norfolk, they brought their collective experience from private practice, investment banking and industry and WGN was born.

Over the last 40 years WGN has grown substantially through recommendations from satisfied clients, but has retained its core values. Entrepreneurial skills, a passion for helping businesses develop; a positive work ethic and an ability to motivate are qualities that have helped WGN, and our clients, to succeed. And you could too.

As of 1 August 2019, WGN has merged with boutique accounting and business advisory firm, Murray Harcourt. Established in 2012, Murray Harcourt has the technical expertise of a top accountancy firm, but what makes them different is their focus on building strong, trusted relationships with their clients. Murray Harcourt strive to provide supportive and friendly professional advice to growing owner managed businesses locally, internationally and globally through their full service offering.
