As Associate Director, Matt oversees the administration and accounting of a large client team in our Guernsey office. Thriving on the diversity his role allows and the Group’s capability to provide a first class service, Matt comments, “Aztec Group doesn’t just accept the norm when it comes to business operation, instead the Group works hard to deliver quality processes which work in relativity to our teams and clients’ needs”.
Starting his career straight after finishing his A-levels, Matt completed his ACCA and ICSA qualifications with Northern Trust, working within their fund administration business. Subsequently Matt spent over twelve years at the organisation, working across a diverse range of private equity clients as a senior manager and gaining vast industry experience and understanding. Matt had previously worked with Rob Jones, now Director at the Aztec Group, and after a chance meeting at a local coffee shop, Rob’s enthusiasm for the Group’s values and successes resulted in Matt’s decision to apply and join as a Senior Financial Reporting Manager in 2013.
Never shy of a challenge and still new to the Group, Matt demonstrated his passion and suitability quickly, taking on the on-boarding of a newly established fund and its respective client. Requiring a comprehensive service which surpassed what is usually required, Matt was passionate about providing the additional value which safeguarded the client’s concerns and delivered a service which the Group prides itself on; “It was exciting to see a fund through from its very beginnings, helping to recruit and build an admin team around the client’s needs and watching the progression and evolution of the fund and client”.
As a keen runner Matt has furthered his determined nature by throwing himself into the Group’s busy sporting calendar. Most recently, entering the 2015 ‘Standard Chartered Jersey Relay Marathon’ where his Guernsey team topped the Aztec Group leader board!
“Matt has built a strong, professional team, with an excellent approach to client service, both with existing clients and in our new client wins. Matt has excellent industry and technical knowledge, as well as a great work ethic and is very much a ‘team player’”. – Rob Jones, Director
Reflecting on the progression of the Group and its continued success in times of strong organic growth, Matt remarks, “The ambition and growth of the company provides employees with the ability and opportunity to progress. The atmosphere is enjoyable because everyone is continually engaged and motivated; teams can see the evidence of their dedicated work as the business moves forward and they can enjoy the rewards which the Group provides. The drive in everyone within the Group to deliver a first class service is infectious”.
Matt is a fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (FCCA), holds a ACCA diploma in International Financial Reporting (DiplFRS), and is also an Associate of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ACIS).
