Alexander Sloan appoints its youngest managing partner

A NEW managing partner has been appointed at Glasgow-based Alexander Sloan.

Philip Morrice (pictured), the firm’s internal audit expert, becomes the youngest managing partner (42) in the firm’s 147-year history.

Morrice, born in East Kilbride and now living in Motherwell, specialises in providing risk management and assurance services to the firm’s client base. He is also a member of the ACCA’s global business law forum.

Morrice said: “It is a great honour to be chosen as managing partner for a firm with such an outstanding professional pedigree. Alexander Sloan has brought the highest possible quality of advice and service to clients for nearly one and a half centuries.

“I will be focusing my full attention on the management of the firm and taking every opportunity to embrace new technologies while re-positioning the brand at the same time as maintaining and protecting its well-justified professional reputation.”

Andy McBean, senior partner at the firm, said: “Alexander Sloan is a very special firm and its direction could not be in better hands that those of Philip. His drive and enthusiasm as well as his keen managerial skills make him the ideal person to take the firm forward.”

“The entire team wishes him all success in the role as he takes the firm towards 2017.”
