Wilder Coe turns 50!

On Monday, 23 October 1972, Robert Coe and Ian Wilder first opened the doors to Wilder Coe Chartered Accountants in Grosvenor Place. Having known each other since school, Robert and Ian took different routes into the accounting world, but their paths crossed again at a small city firm in the late sixties, where they decided to go their own way and set up a practice together.

After several office moves and many entertaining stories later, Wilder Coe established its renowned West End home on Old Marylebone Road in 1987 where the firm eagerly flourished for another 30 years, including an expansion into Hertfordshire in 1997 by our outsourced bookkeeping team. Having settled into our present offices in Fenchurch Street, London, and the Business & Technology Centre, Stevenage, in 1998, Wilder Coe continues to go from strength to strength.

This is thanks to our incredible team’s continued support, professionalism, and expertise. We are grateful for everyone’s hard work and dedication over the past five decades. Of our current team members, at least a third have been a part of Wilder Coe for over ten years! We are immensely proud of the close-family atmosphere we have developed, and our team are an asset to our firm.

Jitendra Pattani, Managing Partner, comments that “running a professional practice is essentially a simple art requiring focus on two key matters: developing and nurturing strong client relations centred on loyalty and trust; and building a strong, loyal, and dedicated team to help our clients professionally and efficiently. Providing this allows the Wilder Coe name to prevail for many years, and I’m confident we have a bright future ahead.”

Now that we have reached this spectacular milestone, we must also thank all our clients, connections, and suppliers for your continuous goodwill, support, and guidance. For some of our clients, we have remained a trusted advisor from generation to generation within their families. Over the many years of working together, we appreciate all the opportunities you have given us and the relationships we have formed.
