Developing a passion for accountancy in his school days, Erique subsequently completed his bachelor’s degree in Accounting with the University of Malawi, followed by the Association of Chartered Accountants qualification (ACCA). After launching his career with Deloitte, Erique began his search for international exposure, accepting a role as Audit Manager with PWC Guernsey. Originally a move intended for a maximum of three years, Erique soon fell for the charm of island life and later joined Standard Bank Jersey, progressing in his role to become Head of Finance. Although a career which afforded him a great deal of valuable experience, Erique observed the growth of the funds industry within the Channel Islands and as a result, steered his future career goals away from the banking industry.
Whilst working at Standard Bank, Erique came into contact with one of Aztec’s Associate Directors, and a former colleague, Jonny Evans, and was impressed with the Group’s success story. Erique comments, “Everyone wants to be involved in a prosperous company which allows you to develop and progress your career. Aztec’s impressive growth story and ambitious goals show a real precedent for exciting times ahead and this is what drew me to the Group.”
Now overseeing the SPV teams and our operating model for client service delivery, Erique has been instrumental in driving a continuous improvement programme for the team, promoting and refining a robust framework for processes and controls. Supervising the team’s project delivery, Erique has been predominantly focussed on system and process changes which further strengthen our internal controls. Erique has also been involved in one of the most extensive client migrations that the Group has seen to date, supporting the migration team to ensure client requirements are met and delivered to our first-rate standard throughout the migration process.
Erique believes that providing staff with the tools to achieve their personal goals is the key to achieving career success, something which needs to be driven by senior management. Erique explains that, in his opinion, this is a vital factor behind the Group’s success; “The Group isn’t afraid of investing in its employees to help them reach their goals, whether they are career orientated, such as completing a professional qualification, or on a more personal level, such as running a charity marathon. From a management point of view, this provides a productive and engaging working environment and culture”.
Erique holds a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of Malawi and is also a Fellow of the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (FCCA).
