Ex-KPMG auditor becomes deputy CEO of Fiscal Engineers

A Nottingham-based advisory firm has appointed a former KPMG senior partner as part of a plan to double its assets under management and because of an “obsession” with quality, delivery and steady organic growth, Shane Mullins has said.

The firm’s chief executive announced that Wayne Cox, who led the KPMG audit practice across the Midlands before becoming a senior partner in 2010, will add to experience in the transactions market and operational and client experience.

“Our business has grown and needs change, so it is clear where we need to step up to, and what was wanted was a real heavyweight. His appointment is an important chapter in our growth and another illustration of our commitment to helping clients manage transition in their lives and to enhancing their experience of working with us.”

Mr Mullins said the firm, which was established in 2000, was not looking for a mass increase in clients. The firm currently has “north of 100” clients and would be content with 150 to 160 in total.

Mr Cox said: “I like the challenge of satisfying clients who, as successes in their own right, demand the highest standards and have the highest expectations.

“Relationships that aren’t built on trust tend to be short-lived. We build relationships that last, which is one of my definitions of success.”
