Seven new initiatives from NixonMcInnes transformation

Today, NixonMcInnes announces the completion of its business transformation. The company has moved from having a fixed in-house team to an associate and partner-based operating model. This has made the business much more purposeful, resilient and flexible.

The transformation has given former employees the opportunity to spin out their own companies and initiatives from NixonMcInnes. Tom Nixon, founder said: “Almost all of our team have spun out their own companies, and I’m incredibly proud and excited to announce them today. We now have a flexible network of associates who can work alone or in collaboration with one another to serve our clients.”

NixonMcInnes will announce further new plans for the future in Spring 2015.

The new initiatives follow:

Max St John, Charles Davies and Nina Timmers have decided that life’s too short to do anything that doesn’t make people happier. They’ve set up a studio in Brighton to work out how to pull our idea of work to pieces and rebuild it, bit by bit.

  1. Tom,

    I am so impressed with what you have done here.

    This new associate / partner model is the future. Flexible / Powerful / Cost effective.

    I’d love to do a case study on this if you are interested? I’ve been asked for help in creating similar models for other Crunch customers, one in the land of Independent Financial Advice and the other Interior Design.

    Speak soon.Thanks, Darren
