Kathy Kelliher

kathy kelliher

Kathy Kelliher is the owner of Office Management Solutions Ltd and has been running this successful business for over ten years. Kathy grew up in Te Anau and went to Fiordland College. Economics and Accounting were her favourite subjects and when she was introduced to computers, she found she had a real talent in working with Accounting Programmes. A natural progression was The National Certificate in Business Computing at Otago Polytechnic where she learnt many skills in working with computers in business. From work experience in Te Anau while studying, her first job began working alongside the company accountant and learning from her expertise. A job in Central Otago opened the door for many possibilities, including travel to Ireland with then boyfriend, now husband. Running her own business in Ireland gave Kathy the confidence to come back to Alexandra and start up her own business OMS and she hasn’t looked back.
Kathy has two daughters with Husband Gary and lives on a farm in Springvale, Alexandra.

Fiona Kissel

fiona kissel

Fiona Kissel has been with Office Management Solutions since 2006 and spends most of her time out and about in the Alexandra area working with her clients in their offices. The work varies from doing day to day or monthly accounts processing, problem solving, to payroll, to installing software and training clients on using their accounting & payroll software. It is the variety of work and clients that gives Fiona enjoyment in her occupation. Fiona started work in Christchurch for the government as a Survey Draughtperson. In 1995, Fiona moved from Christchurch to Central Otago with her husband, Bruce for a change away from the city. They thought it would be just for a couple of years, but Central Otago has taken a hold and is now well and truly home. In Alexandra Fiona secured draughting work with both local survey firms and then moved on to work for Bodkins. While working in administration for Bodkins, Fiona completed her Legal Executive Certificate through The Open Polytechnic. It is this legal executive training that has given Fiona great attention to detail and she found she was excellent with computers and figures. After Bodkins, Fiona worked as office manager for a local mortgage broker. This gave Fiona further experience in the accounting/payroll/HR side of administration in business and led her to the work she does today.
Fiona enjoys teaching yoga classes a couple of evenings a week and also has an interest in Search and Rescue and is currently secretary for COSAR, as well as being operational for field work.
