Robert Pullen, 31, is the youngest partner in the history of Londonbased accounting, tax and advisory practice Blick Rothenberg. With a civil engineering and architecture background, he started his career in private client tax at Deloitte, before leaving for a boutique single-family office in Tunbridge Wells, and then joining Blick’s.
‘A lot of partners here are ex-Big Four,’ he says. ‘So there’s a lot of expertise and knowledge, and a more entrepreneurial approach.’
And how have things changed for Pullen since his promotion to partner in July 2018? ‘The buck stops with you,’ he tells Spear’s. ‘You make the calls and you make the decisions, and you have the final say.’ Most importantly, he adds, ‘You have to to get it right’.
