Meet the team that will solve your eCommerce bookkeeping problems

CronosNow- Richard Starkey

Richard Starkey

I founded CronosNow to create the perfect accounting firm for other eCom entrepreneurs like myself.

I have over 20 years of experience starting, buying and running tech and accounting businesses.

I have been an audit partner, a CFO, entrepreneur and investor in eCommerce startups for 8 years.

My passion is to serve entrepreneurs and interesting people, which includes our team and our clients!

If you are considering moving your accounting to CronosNow, I will probably be the first person you speak with.

I meet with all potential and new clients to make sure we are a good fit for your business, and that my team is best prepared to serve you and your business.

Kerryn Nurick

I lead new client on-boarding as well as being our in house technology stack champion, so it is a good thing that I love learning new things! Each client of ours has something unique about their business and process, and technologies are constantly improving so I am therefore always learning.

I have over 15 years of USA and global market experience in big 4 and top 10 accounting firms as a specialist and manager in accounting and audit roles. I love to travel the world and you will often talk to me while I am in new countries, possibly having a coffee with one of our clients around the world.

I design your accounting processes and focus on solving problems efficiently. Dreaming up innovative accounting solutions is what I do!

Favourite book: One of them is definitely Stardust by Neil Gaiman, a friend described it as the most beautiful love story.
Things I love: I read a lot and even though I’m allergic, I love cats.

Riaan van Graan

I get a kick out of adding real value to our clients businesses. I have over 10 years of experience in managing teams of accountants for innovative, customer service orientated businesses.

I have worked closely with Richard, initially managing a significant education business accounting and finance team so we have spent years learning how to best make things work together.

Once onboarding is completed with Kerryn, you will work closely with me and your designated bookkeeper. I manage our team of bookkeepers and drive the monthly reporting.

I manage our bookkeeper team and I am passionate about their development. I have a keen eye for detail and enjoy analysing results, forecasting and reporting. 

Favourite book: – Still need to read it.
Things I love: – Mostly out door stuff and DIY projects – since I always find a way to do things differently

Anneque Bassett

I do quite a few things around here. I work directly with some of our clients, if Xero breaks I am the person everyone calls and our virtual bookkeepers look to me for support. I also handle our own client billing and invoicing, so all our clients have an open door to me with any issues on their account with us.

I have over 15 years of experience in accounting and bookkeeping, most of which has been in Xero based systems and many of these have been working with Richard and Riaan inside Richard’s different businesses.
I have a great eye for detail and pride myself on the quality of accounting work I consistently deliver for our team and clients. I bring an expectation of raising our game constantly when it comes to the nuts and bolts of delivering our accounting service. 


Favourite book: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stepehn R Covey
Things I love: I have a great love for nature and building puzzles (maybe that is why I love accounting!).

Shaun de Greeff

I handle the marketing for CronosNow and have over 15 years experience in design, print, marketing and web. I have been Google Ads certified since 2009 and have worked with numerous businesses to create predictable, scalable marketing and sales engines that help grow their businesses.

As a co-owner (with Richard) of an eCommerce business that sells hand-made goods on a variety of online platforms I can empathize with the challenges that you will face in trying to grow your business. Having your own business is a very humbling experience and you need a reliable team to help you navigate the numerous pitfalls as you climb the ladder of success.

I believe that CronosNow will provide you with the expertise you need to make an even greater success of your eCom business.
