Ex-Grant Thornton IP joins Johnston Carmichael

JOHNSTON CARMICHAEL has recruited former Grant Thornton senior Donald McNaught as its business recovery and insolvency director.

McNaught (pictured) has been appointed to more than 2,000 cases since his licence was granted by ICAS in 2005 and has sat on the institute’s insolvency committee for three years. His arrival brings the number of people in the insolvency team at Johnston Carmichael to 11.

McNaught, who started his career at HLB Kidsons, was director of insolvency at Invocas Financial for seven years, before spending three years at Grant Thornton, latterly as a corporate and restructuring senior.

McNaught said: “I’ve long admired Johnston Carmichael, in particular the firm’s achievements in the central belt in the past few years. Business recovery and insolvency is a demanding job, but the most encouraging part is finding solutions for directors and debtors to help them get them back on their feet.”
