In addition to the Partner promotions, six team members across the group have also been promoted to the role of Director:

  • Aveen McShane, Business Advisory Director – Newry
  • Caroline Butler, Corporate Tax Director – Dublin
  • Claire Walker, AAB People Director – Edinburgh

Amanda, Graeme, Linda and Stuart have all demonstrated superb leadership, and I’m delighted to see them progress to Partner. I look forward to working with them, and our newly appointed Directors, as we continue to deliver unparalleled services for our clients.
