French Duncan expands with Abercrombie Gemmell deal

Abercrombie Gemmell will be rebranded as French Duncan

SCOTTISH FIRM French Duncan has completed the acquisition of Bearsden-based Abercrombie Gemmell Chartered Accountants.

Founded by Colin and Christine Abercrombie 23 years ago, Abercrombie Gemmell boasts 12 staff and a turnover of £1m, offering tax, audit and wealth-planning services.

All Abercrombie Gemmell staff and partners have now relocated to French Duncan’s office space on the ninth and tenth floors at 133 Finnieston Street, Glasgow, and the firm will be rebranded as French Duncan.

The move follows French Duncan’s recent merger with Stirling-based Macfarlane Gray, something that has seen the firm’s fee income grow 6% over the past year.

Colin Abercrombie said: “In order to continue to offer the commitment to the delivery of a personal, high quality, proactive service, the time is right for Abercrombie Gemmell to become part of like-minded, progressive French Duncan.

“Myself and my colleagues are totally committed to the future of the new, enlarged operation and are genuinely excited about the service quality enhancements that this development will offer our existing clients.”

French Duncan managing partner Graeme Finnie said: “We are delighted to secure the services of Colin Abercrombie and that of his experienced team. Colin is an acknowledged business developer who is very commercial and well respected. We welcome his raft of experience, contacts and business development skills to our firm.
