Within the firm’s Tax department, Paul Donnelly has been promoted to Associate Director. Paul, who was one of Consilium’s first hires when the company started in 2013, will continue to expand the company’s Tax Advisory offering alongside Tax partner, Craig Coyle.

Also, within Tax Duncan McKellar assumes the role of Senior Manager for Corporate Tax. Formerly a lecturer with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland, Duncan will continue to lead Consilium’s Corporate Tax compliance team.  

“I would like to thank the partners for the faith they have shown in me since I made the jump back into practice in 2020. I am delighted to have been promoted to Senior Manager”, said Duncan McKellar. “The partner group, and the wider team, make Consilium a great place to work and I am excited to continue my career progression with this talented group of people.” 

Accounts and Business Services manager Martin Kerr becomes an Associate Director. Having joined Consilium in 2014, Martin takes on responsibility for an increased portfolio of clients as well as driving forward Consilium’s cloud accounting services.  

“I’m thrilled and grateful to have been promoted to Associate Director at Consilium”, said Martin Kerr. “I look forward to working with the team and clients, and contributing to our growth together” 

Consilium’s Corporate Finance offering has been bolstered by the promotion of Colin McCrann to Manager. Colin continues to focus on the growth of the firm’s Transaction Services offering.
