Appointment of 2 Partners, Top 10 Firm, Milton Keynes


Adlestrop Consulting were asked to aid a Top 10 accountancy firm in appointing an ABA Partner in their Milton Keynes office.

This was a newly created role for the region which represented a period of transformation for the accounts and advisory team and shaping the future direction of the firm.


Having worked closely with the regional managing partner for this Top 10 accountancy in recent years, we have a firm understanding of the firm itself, the culture and the people.

Our unrivalled knowledge places us in an ideal position to identify candidates that are the right fit as well as being able to convey the firm’s story and direction to potential candidates.

“We had historically been focused on compliance work and are undergoing a step change within the firm which is being driven by our clients’ needs and changes within the marketplace.

“Our need was for an individual to come into this newly created role who could be more of an advisor to clients to help them with developing and implementing their strategies.”

We conducted a detailed search exercise to map out the market in line with our client’s requirements. Our attention focused on identifying high-quality accountancy professionals with Big 4 or mid-tier firms who had a strong pedigree and background.

The office managing partner was in search of an individual who would be focused on building a client base and could developing people within the firm.

“Charles had a great understanding of the project and our expectations, having been referred to me internally and had a proven track record assisting our firm.

“His approach was structured, detailed and thorough. I was impressed with the output from the project, especially the consultative approach which led to a number of proposals and suggestions which helped us shape the project.

“Adlestrop Consulting invested time in identifying the right people who were the right fit – they did not simply provide a list of people based solely on job title, background and location.

“The investment of time could be seen through the high-quality calibre of professionals Charles presented to us. So much so, we have invested in two individuals from this assignment when we were originally looking for one person.”


Our client has successfully appointed two accountancy professionals at Partner level to shape the direction of the firm in Milton Keynes and surrounding region.

“My perception of Charles Magill and Adlestrop Consulting is – professional, respectful and approachable.

“We found Charles to provide a bespoke approach which was tailored to our needs.”
