Top 20 firm Saffery Champness has announced the appointment of Donald Forsyth as a partner based in the Inverness office, with effect from April 1.

Forsyth will be leaving his role as managing partner at EY’s Inverness office. Following EY’s recent decision to reduce the size of their Inverness office, Forsyth has worked closely with Saffrey Champness to ensure local clients are offered continued services.

Forsyth previously spent 17 years at Scott-Moncrieff as commercial partner leading the firm’s Business Advisory Group and serving on the Executive & Strategy Board between 2011-2014.

Forsyth specialises in advising owner-managed businesses, entrepreneurs and not-for-profit entities, which are fast growing sectors for the Inverness office. He joins the team equipped with extensive experience across all sectors of SMEs, including technology, professional services, property and forestry.

Rob Elliott, managing partner of the firm, said: “I am very pleased to welcome Donald to Saffery Champness. He brings with him a wealth of experience that is closely aligned with the key sectors we operate in. His expertise and knowledge will be a real asset to our clients and we look forward to working with him as we continue to build our presence in Inverness.”

Forsyth commented: “I am excited to join the Saffery Champness partnership. The firm has an excellent reputation, and I look forward to working with the team in Inverness and my fellow partners across Scotland and the UK to continue to provide market-leading advice to clients.”

Forsyth’s appointment bolsters Saffrey Champness’ already increasing presence in Scotland, whose Inverness and Edinburgh teams have expanded significantly over the last five years.

Saffery Champness has almost 600 partners and staff in the UK across nine offices.
