These appointments underline our focus on technology and commitment to improve systems and processes across client services.
Commenting on his appointment Alan said: “It is a privilege to follow in the footsteps of Jandy Stevenson who has steered the firm through a programme of expansion and has been a key component of the firm’s development over the past four years. It is an exciting time as we continue to embrace the latest technology and build on our role as business advisors. Stephen and Fiona will bring added focus to our offering to the market, with a particular focus on emerging Cloud-based accounting innovations.”
“Scotland has deals to be done and we are well positioned to be where the action is. We have clearly identified areas of sector expertise, such as creative and interactive media, life sciences, education and manufacturing, where our deep understanding of the business environment means that we can add value to our core accountancy, audit and tax offering. I look forward to working with our Managing Partner David Smith, the rest of the board and the wider partnership to grow our presence in these markets.”
