Robert Pullen, 31, is the youngest partner in Blick Rothenberg’s history. A graduate 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.’ How have things changed for Pullen since his promotion in July 2018? ‘The buck stops with you,’ he says. ‘You make the calls and you make the decisions, and you have the final say.’ And most importantly, he adds, ‘You have to get it right’.
