Promotions at Aberdeen-based accountancy firm Anderson Anderson and Brown (AAB) have seen three of its team become directors.

AAB, based at Kingswells, said the career progressions for Stuart Petrie, Jill Walker and Lynn Wilson were “richly deserved”.

Mr Petrie is now a director in the firm’s new business advisory division, while he also
leads its tax investigation team supporting clients in often complex cases both in the UK and abroad.

Ms Walker is leading AAB’s private client team advising unincorporated businesses on all types of transactions, together with managing their annual tax compliance requirements.

In addition, she specialises in advice to non-resident individuals and helps them manage their exposure to UK or overseas tax liabilities.

Ms Wilson specialises in tax advice and support to companies and their entrepreneurial owners, with a particular focus on structuring investments, company reorganisations, employee equity incentivisation and planning for an exit.

AAB managing partner Graeme Allan said: “All of these promotions are richly deserved, as not only do each of them have significant experience and expertise in specialist areas of tax, but they continue to bring new ideas and strategic initiatives to the business.

“This approach is so crucial for our firm as we continue to grow in a changing marketplace here in the UK as well as globally, and adapt to the needs of our business as well as our clients.

“Our ambitious growth plans will only be achievable with a strong and diverse team, with a leadership who can continue to anticipate and react to challenges, while also creating and responding to new opportunities.”
