NEW BRANDING for Johnston Carmichael has been revealed, as the firm posted double-digit growth for 2012/2013.

The Scottish firm saw 13% growth for the year ending 31 May 2013, with turnover up to £33.4m and a rise in net profit before members' remuneration to £10.6m (up 7%). The results incorporate its merger last year with Aberdeen firm Ritson Smith.

Its wealth advisory business, Johnston Carmichael Wealth, was picked out as a particular highlight during the period.

Chief executive Sandy Manson said that new appointments would push the division on in the next year. "The recent appointment of Craig Hendry and Mike Clark to the posts of managing director and chairman, respectively, together with a number of key adviser hires is aimed at further growing this part of our business."

"I am also delighted to launch our new brand identity under the theme of ‘Where Sharp Minds Meet,' reflecting the firm's ethos and progressive outlook in how it supports and works with business owners, visionaries and entrepreneurs across Scotland."

Besides the merger, another highlight of this year was joining the PKF network in September.

"Our membership of PKF will enable us to support the growing number of clients who are expanding their operations internationally. The opportunities for Scottish companies abroad are very considerable indeed."

Johnston Carmichael currently sits at 20 in the Accountancy Age Top 50+50 Survey of firms.
