Scotland’s largest independent accountancy and business advice firm will have a new chief executive at the helm from August.
Aberdeen-based Johnston Carmichael (JC) said Andrew Walker was taking over the reins from Sandy Manson, who has led the business since before the financial crisis.
Mr Walker is currently managing partner of the firm’s Granite City office, having joined JC in 2003.
He said: “It is a great honour to take over the role of CEO from Sandy and build on Johnston Carmichael’s strong track record as Scotland’s leading independent accountancy firm.
“Our profession is going through a lot of change and we as a firm need to keep evolving, improving and investing to take advantage of the exciting opportunities which exist for a leading independent firm of our national scale.
“Our talent pipeline is stronger than ever because of our long-term focus on succession planning and I am looking forward to harnessing that energy and expertise as we take the business to the next level.”
