Articles - Xafinity appoint ex-KPMG partner as deputy managing director


 Jeff Hunt, former KPMG partner, will be joining Xafinity Consulting from 1st June as deputy managing director, ultimately taking over from managing director Robert Birmingham in April next year, when Robert will become executive chairman.

 Jeff will initially be responsible for business strategy in which role he will work closely with Robert and other senior colleagues.

 Jeff has over 20 years of experience in the pensions industry and joins Xafinity from TradeRisks where he was managing director. Before that Jeff worked for 8 years as a partner at KPMG.

 Whilst at KPMG, Jeff led the London pension team through its transformation from being a small back office function with 23 employees in 2004 to becoming the market leader in the provision of corporate pensions advice by the end of 2008. During that period Jeff recruited over 100 people. Revenues increased from £3m pa to £25m pa with profit margin also increasing over the period.

 Robert Birmingham, managing director, Xafinity, said: “Xafinity has grown to be one of the leading providers of pensions and employee benefits advice and support services in the UK and we now employ over 380 people across the UK, supporting over 450 schemes and 200,000 members. Ensuring continuity of business relationships has been at the heart of our business and therefore I am very pleased that Jeff has accepted the challenge of working alongside me and the rest of the team, and taken up the challenge to take Xafinity to the next phase of the organisation’s growth.”

 Jeff Hunt said: “I am delighted to be joining Xafinity and am looking forward to the opportunities and challenges ahead. Xafinity has an excellent reputation for providing quality pensions and benefit advice, but our market is changing and, we will be looking to further develop our relationship with companies on all aspects of their pension and benefit strategies.”
