TOP UK accountancy and business advisory firm Johnston Carmichael has strengthened its leadership team with seven senior promotions across Scotland and the North East of England. 

The seven senior promotions are among 55 promotions effective across the business this month and brings the total number promoted at Johnston Carmichael this year to 143.  

Business advisory specialist Raemond Jappy, who is based in Aberdeen, becomes Partner, and there are six Director promotions:  

·        Lisa Thomson (Audit), also based in Aberdeen 

·        Louise Mair (Audit), in Edinburgh 

·        Allyson Banford (Audit), Jordan Haldane (Financial Reporting Advisory Services) and Greg Sutherland (Tax), in Glasgow 

·        Glen Small (VAT and Duty), in Newcastle. 

Each of the seven have achieved professional qualifications equivalent to a masters degree. 

Rae, Louise, Allyson and Jordan obtained chartered accountant (CA) status after completing their ICAS (The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Scotland) qualifications with Johnston Carmichael, while Lisa was a CA prior to joining Johnston Carmichael as a supervisor in 2016. 

Glen Small, who joined the firm in 2022, is CTA (Chartered Tax Adviser) qualified. In 2019, Glen was awarded the Chartered Institute of Tax (CIOT) North East England Prize for the highest overall score achieved by newly qualified CTA members. Greg is ATT (Association of Tax Technicians) qualified.  

Martin Osler, Chief People Officer, said: “We have an inclusive culture where we encourage everyone to be a leader of their work and their learning. It is encouraging to see so many people who joined our firm as Graduates, grow their careers with us and become senior leaders.  

“Our Leadership Programme challenges our people to think differently about themselves and their performance and to reflect on how they can achieve their career ambitions while embedding a high-performance philosophy in our firm. Each of these promotions exemplifies these principles.  

“Congratulations to everyone who achieved promotion in our firm this year and we look forward to seeing them help to sustain our success.”
