Accenture advisor Dominic Tritton joins Moorhouse

19 May 2015 Consultancy.uk

UK consultancy firm Moorhouse has added Dominic Tritton to its team. Tritton, who takes on the role of Principal within the firm’s Technology, Media and Telecoms practice, transfers from rival Accenture.

Dominic Tritton has more than ten years of experience in the consulting industry. After obtaining degrees from the University of Southampton (Law) and Durham University (Management) he started his career with Accenture in London. At the US-origin management and technology consultancy Tritton grew through the ranks, from Analyst to Senior Manager, a role he was handed during Accenture’s 2012 career performance cycle. At the company, Tritton supported major business transformation programmes, with a focus on the Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) sector. In his most recent role he supported Vodafone UK with enhancing their IT technology capabilities in order to improve go-to-market performance of new products.

After more than 10 years with the firm, Tritton has decided to take on a new challenge, and earlier this month joined Moorhouse, a London-based management consultancy. “Dominic joins Moorhouse at a really exciting time and will be a key part of the sector leadership team as we further build on our experience and track record in delivering transformational change with clients across the TMT sector,” comments Richard Brackstone, TMT sector lead at Moorhouse. In his new role as Principal, Tritton will be responsible for further building the firm’s footprint in the TMT consulting market (estimated to be worth roughly $5 billion globally), as well as leading client engagements and contributing to internal practice development. 

Post-merger integration
One of the key functional offerings Tritton will play a role in is post-merger integration. According to Richard Goold, a partner at Moorhouse, the radical change hovering above TMT players is sparking a “wave of M&A activity”, with in particular large transactions thrusting the market. A analysis from PwC released on Monday reveals that TMT deal value in the US totalled $39 billion in Q1 2015, more than double the $16 billion realised in the same period last year. 90% of the deal value can be attributed to just six megadeals (over $1 billion), including the acquisition of Bright House Networks by Charter Communications ($10.8 billion) and the acquisition of Verizon’s Wireline Operations ($10.5 billion) by Frontier. Figures for Europe have not yet been released by PwC, yet the outcome is set to portray a similar, strong upwards trend in M&A activity, with the $16.6 billion Nokia Alcatel-Lucent the absolute blockbuster.

“The real winners of this surge of M&A activity are the organisations that manage the post-merger integration successfully.  At Moorhouse we have extensive experience of managing post-merger integration programmes and the addition of Dominic comes at a time when we are seeing more clients requiring best-in-class integration support,” adds Goold.

Market entry
Earlier this year Baringa Partners, another London-based management consultancy, unveiled it was entering the TMT advisory market in a move to capitalise on the growing potential for transformation services. To lead its aspirations the firm poached Guy Dent from Deloitte, where he served as a partner in the Big Four’s TMT practice.

Rapid growth sees Quantum Advisory promote trio of partners

18 April 2019 Consultancy.uk

Three senior level consultants have been boosted to the rank of Partner at Quantum Advisory, as the firm works to meet heightened levels of client demand. Aled Edwards, Amanda Burdge and Chris Heirene become Partners as long-time Quantum member Rob Davies retires in May after 15 years as a Partner at the firm.

Founded in 2000, Quantum Advisory provides pension and employee benefits services to employers, scheme trustees and members, with five offices across the UK. The firm has enjoyed exponential growth in recent years, following a number of major client wins and booming demand for its services. It opened a new office in Bristol in 2016 to service the South West and in 2017 relocated its Cardiff office to a larger site within the Welsh capital to house the increased workforce. More recently, Quantum relocated its Amersham, Birmingham and London offices to more spacious premises in the centre of both cities to cope with demand.

The financial services consultancy, which employs 115 people across the UK, has promoted three senior team members to Partner, as part of its wider growth plans. The firm has moved Aled Edwards from Principal Consultant & Actuary, while Amanda Burdge has ascended from Principal Investment Consultant. Chris Heirene, former IT Manager, has also joined the ten current Partners at Quantum.

Aled Edwards most recently managed the actuarial team within Quantum’s Cardiff office as well as providing technical training for all staff. He boasts more than 17 years of pensions experience. He started his career as an Actuary at Jardine Lloyd Thompson’s Bristol wing, before joining Quantum in 2011. Edwards is also the President of the Welsh Actuarial Society (WAS), which supports actuaries and actuarial students living or working in Wales.

Amanda Burdge joined Quantum’s team in 2001, as one of the fledgling firm’s first employees. Most recently she was a Principal Investment Consultant with the firm, and with more than a quarter of a century’s experience in the sector, she is responsible for providing investment advice to many of Quantum’s key clients with both defined benefit and defined contribution schemes. Prior to her time with Quantum, Burdge spent two years as a consultant with SBJ Benefit Consultants (now Capita), and three years with Tesco Pension Trustees. She currently sits on the Regulation Committee for the Pensions Management Institute.

Chris Heirene initially worked with Quantum as an IT Consultant with Teamwork Technology Services and then UES for over five years, before finally joining the firm itself in 2011. He is now responsible for Quantum’s IT systems across all of its offices, including the network and core server infrastructure which supports the business. Heirene is heavily involved in utilising IT to improve and build upon the processes in place throughout Quantum.

David Deidun, Partner at Quantum Advisory, said of the promotions, “This is a very exciting time for Quantum. The recent round of promotions fully recognise the hard work and dedication shown by the three, all of whom go above and beyond for the company. I’ve no doubt that Aled, Amanda and Chris will settle into their new roles with ease and look forward to working together to grow Quantum even further.”

The news comes as Rob Davies retires in May, after spending fifteen years as a Partner at Quantum. A qualified actuary, Davies was instrumental in setting up Quantum’s Investment Division, specialising in aiding clients with their investment strategies. He will remain with the company on a part-time consultancy basis, while working with several clients in the Fiduciary Manager area.
