SCOTT-MONCRIEFF has appointed a new board to oversee its growth and expansion, after the firm merged with Inverness-based practice Callander Colgan last year.
The task force will be responsible with leading the delivery of a five-year strategy for the firm, as it looks to boost income by 50% between now and 2020.
On the board are Stewart MacDonald (managing partner), Bernadette Higgins, Chris Brown, Nick Bennett and Gareth Magee. They will also be responsible for substantial improvements to efficiency including major IT investments.
The new board will be operating in Moncrieff’s Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness offices.
Scott-Moncrieff continues to improve its infrastructure after making a number of additions to its staff last year, including the appointment of former Grant Thornton chief Gary Devlin and the promotion of Alison Gibson to partner in its Glasgow office.
Board member Stewart MacDonald says that the new board is an “important development” for Scott-Moncrieff as they look to embark on a five-year strategy.
“The new approach underlines the importance that our strategy places on our own business. Our standard of client service has always been extremely high. What we’re seeking to do now is to ensure that our operational areas are just as highly regarded and are geared up to boost our growth potential,” he said.
