FRENCH DUNCAN has appointed Bruce Gellatly as managing partner, after he worked for a year as the firm’s audit partner.
Gellatly assumes his role in Edinburgh following the appointment of Jeff Meek, former long-term managing partner in Edinburgh, as head of French Duncan’s new forensic accounting department.
He previously spent 20 years at Ernst & Young, where he had roles in London, Aberdeen, the US and Libya, and latterly had a role as head of risk in the UK and Ireland.
Gellatly said: “Since French Duncan’s merger with McCabes four years ago, the practice has enjoyed a period of sustained growth. I joined just over a year ago and, since then, the Edinburgh office has been successful in winning significant amounts of work within the property management and manufacturing sectors.”
