“In our first three years we have established a strong reputation for delivery and industry expertise which we want to build on further,” Toepfer said. “Philip is extremely well known and respected within the industry and has a great track record for successfully growing businesses. Greig and I are super excited to be working with Philip and his joining KONU will help accelerate our growth and enhance our capabilities.”
“We are all strongly aligned on where we can take the business and create opportunities for our people. We’re already experiencing Philip’s entrepreneurial flare and he will be invaluable in assisting our clients navigate through the challenges that investment management firms and the superannuation industry faces,” Nicholson said.
Hope was the co-founder of Morse Consulting, which was sold to Deloitte Australia in 2016, having gained a “market leading reputation” for operating model design, operational due diligence and service provider selection.
