SCOTT-MONCRIEFF has announced the immediate appointment of a new partner in its Glasgow office. Allison Gibson has been with the firm for 17 years, joining in 1998 as a CA trainee.
Gibson provides audit and accounting advice, alongside operational and technical advice, and training, to SMEs and owner managed businesses within the manufacturing, distribution, property and construction sectors.
She also has a number of clients in the charity sector, focusing on the arts, care organisations and grant givers.
Managing partner Stewart MacDonald said of the appointment: “Allison has worked her way up through the business, and has rightly earned the loyalty of her clients and colleagues along the way.
“She has established a solid client base while developing both the team and business, and in particular, has been well placed to advise owner managers on the ever-changing landscape that comes along with challenging circumstances. With a track record of commitment and success, Allison’s advancement to partner is very well deserved.”
