Curzon & Company has appointed Andrew Morgan as Managing Partner. Morgan has been with the advisory firm since 2003, when he joined from larger counterpart Capgemini Consulting.

With a core team of 50+ advisors and associates, London-based Curzon & Company is a mid-sized consultancy firm that specialises in strategy execution and change management. The privately owned firm primarily works for companies with headquarters in the UK, such as Rolls Royce, Aviva and Homeserve, although over the last years the business advisory has operated around the world and is currently running projects in Italy and Latin America.

This morning Curzon & Company announced that it has installed Andrew Morgan as its new Managing Partner. Morgan has a strong background in the consulting industry – he started in the field in 1994 with Gemini Consulting after ten years in a variety of line management roles in the defence industry with BAe Dynamics. At Gemini Consulting, and later Cap Gemini Ernst & Young Consulting, Morgan worked across a broad range of sectors including Engineering & Manufacturing, Infrastructure & Utilities, Financial Services and Telco, Media &Technology.

In 2003, three years after Capgemini acquired Ernst & Young Consulting (now rebranded as Capgemini Consulting), Morgan joined Curzon & Company. Over the past 12 years he contributed to dozens of business transformations, including projects in the area of post-merger integration, product portfolio planning, channel structure and profitability improvement. In recent years he served as program director for several large scale business improvement and change programmes.

On the back of his successful track record, Morgan has now been given the mandate to lead the firm, with his key task aimed at continuing the firm’s growing footprint. This year Curzon & Company has managed to grow its fee income by over 30%, a “testament to the great results we achieve with and for clients” comments Morgan, adding that he looks forward to executing the consultancy’s recently sharpened strategy, geared at focus on “areas where we truly excel”.

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.
