Fanie Nothnagel is a Chartered Accountant with a passion for development work. He has a wealth of financial and auditing experience gained in England, Scotland, Germany and South-Africa across various business sectors and industries.


In 2013 he founded Dalmeny Consulting which specialises in building finance capacity in the NPO sector. He currently serves on various NPO audit and finance committees. During 2016 he also joined the Social Enterprise Academy as a tutor on the Journey to Social Enterprise Programme, responsible for the financial management module.

He started his career doing articles with a small audit firm in Pretoria and then moved on to work for SARS in Cape Town. This gave him invaluable experience “on the other side”. His love for travel saw him joining KPMG in the UK where he obtained in-depth knowledge and experience on various clients of all sizes from owner managed to listed companies. This was also his first exposure to large non-profit organisations such as Barnardo’s and Age Concern. During this time he also accepted secondments to Germany and Scotland gaining insights into best practice across different countries.

Fanie and his family finally relocated back to South-Africa after 8 years of travels and adventures abroad. He joined PwC in the Durban office for two years before starting his own consultancy.
