David Choi


David was originally born and raised in Korea before moving to New Zealand at the age of seventeen. Growing up David admired his uncle who is a CPA accountant in the USA, “I saw him working when I was young and it fascinated me”. David was sure he was going to take the same career path, and so he did. He studied at Auckland University while also completing a two-year internship at a Korean CA Firm located in Birkenhead. This showed David the ropes around compliance tasks such as GST, PAYE, and Tax Returns. After graduating in 2017, David began his first full-time role working at a small CA firm in Auckland CBD, and five years later, he found GS.

What David loves most about GS is that he can expand his career even further by working with a diverse group of fantastic professionals and mentors. David takes pride in working with people and creating value in every relationship.

“I believe trust is the most valuable virtue for all accountants”.

David loves to travel and will never forget the time he spent in Hong Kong – even though the tight itinerary only allowed him to stay for one day! It was the people, culture and food in Hong Kong that was incomparably amazing. It’s safe to say David will definitely be visiting Hong Kong again in the near future, with much more time to enjoy it.

Aside from exploring, David likes to play social badminton with his mates, and golf every weekend.

“My biggest life lesson is to surround myself with good people, with great influence.”
