Sedulo has hired two professionals from accountancy firm Grant Thornton to take up senior positions at the financial advisory firm.

It has appointed Andy Nixon as national director of operations and tax and Diccon Thornely as national head of audit. Andy will work with the R&D team while Diccon will oversee all audit operations.

In 2021, Sedulo invested £1.4m setting up an operation in Liverpool. It employs 75 staff and also has offices in Manchester, London and Leeds. In December it reported annual revenues of £13.2m – a rise of almost 30% on the previous year.

It offers services in audit, accountancy, taxation, business consultancy, forensic accounting, financial planning, IT consultancy plus mergers and acquisitions.

The R&D team within Sedulo, led by Josh Perry, has doubled in size during the past 12 months, from six team members in early 2022 to 14.

Andy is an experienced technology and transformation leader, having started his career at ICL and subsequently AstraZeneca and IBM. Throughout his career he has worked for some of the biggest household names and global brands.

Diccon joins the business having spent the majority of his career, working at Grant Thornton UK, his last position being an RI in its London audit and assurance division, helping lead the not-for-profit team.

He offers extensive experience, with a specialism in providing audit services for all sizes of private, public and not-for-profit organisations.

Sedulo founder, Paul Cheetham-Karcz, said: “The significant growth in R&D means we needed to bring someone in to lead the operational side of the division. Getting Andy was a major coup for us and we are delighted to have him on board.

“Diccon is also an important appointment for us. He adds an immense amount of experience to our audit team, and by joining us it has cemented the standard of our holistic offering.”
