Malcolm PopeAudit and Accounts Partner

Malcolm has helped me understand my finances fully and make better decisions on a regular basis.

  • 50% Dad
  • 20% Dancer
  • 20% Trustee
  • 10% Office Comedian


  • Chartered Accountant and registered auditor
  • Appointed partner at the age of 29
  • Driving force behind the development of Genus
  • Instrumental in achieving Shorts' Platinum status of Xero 'cloud' accounting
  • Vice Chair of Ashgate Hospicecare

I joined Shorts directly from university and progressed through the firm before being promoted to Audit and Accounts partner.

I advise many of our clients who take advantage of our Genus offering and have responsibility for ensuring that Genus remains a market leader.  By responding to the development and creation of new products in the online marketplace, I ensure that Shorts continue to provide a service of the highest standard. My goal is for our clients to have the ability to make better decisions because of Shorts’ input.

My natural disposition towards new technology has enabled me to be instrumental in developing the firm’s cloud accounting strategy and offering for clients. I am particularly proud of our achievement in being the region’s first Xero Platinum Partner and our success as advisory firm of the year in the Yorkshire Accountancy Awards.

Over the coming weeks, our phased transition will see members of our team returning to the office, where we have made a number of changes to ensure a safe working environment. All of our team can still be contacted by clients, whether working from home or in the office. If you would like to speak to one of them, please contact them via their direct email or mobile number. Calls to our office reception numbers will be answered, and a message passed on, for your call to be returned.
