Ex-Deloitte senior manager appointed by French Duncan

French Duncan appoints Andrew Ford, a former senior manager at Deloitte's private client team, as tax director

ACCOUNTANCY FIRM French Duncan has appointed Andrew Ford as tax director.

Ford, who was a senior manager at Deloitte’s private client team, began his professional life as a lawyer, before focusing on tax work in 1994 which he then began to specialise in.

Twelve years ago, he joined PwC in Glasgow before taking on the position of head of tax at private client law firm Murray Beith Murray. He then joined Deloitte eight years ago.

Ford’s appointment comes at a good time for the firm, as its tax group reports a huge year of growth and development which has led to a 20% rise in its turnover and gross profit.

Tax partner and head of tax at French Duncan, Ann Somerville, said: “Andrew’s wealth of experience at a senior level will undoubtedly add to the existing strengths of our private client tax team.”
