Rice takes leading Scottish role
Arthur Andersen has appointed partner Eamonn Rice to head up its recently formed Scottish Financial Services Industry Group.
Based in Edinburgh, Rice will be advising clients on strategy, risk management, business restructuring and market conduct compliance. Speaking about his new post, he expressed delight at the prospect of working in the vibrant Scottish finance sector.
‘Recent events, such as Royal Bank of Scotland’s battle with Bank of Scotland for NatWest and Lloyd’s-TSB’s deal with Scottish Widows, have reminded the world of the strength of the Scottish financial services community,’ he said.
Andersens’ senior partner in Scotland, Fred Hallsworth, welcomed the move.
‘Eamonn’s deep industry skills will allow us to provide companies with leading edge solutions to the issues they face,’ said Hallsworth.
