Scotland’s largest independent firm of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, Johnston Carmichael, is celebrating after being named as the UK’s Firm of the Year at this year’s British Accountancy Awards.
With 54 partners and over 500 staff working across 12 offices throughout Scotland including Peterhead and Fraserburgh, Johnston Carmichael saw off competition from the major UK firms of Smith & Williamson and South of England-based MHA MacIntyre Hudson to take the top honour in the National Firm of the Year category.
The judging panel applauded Johnston Carmichael for demonstrating ‘real leadership and energy based on a great agenda for their, and client’s growth’.
Johnston Carmichael chief executive Sandy Manson said: “We are delighted to have been recognised amongst our peers as the UK’s top firm and it is a tremendous achievement for our entire team and a huge testament to their commitment and ability.
“It underlines our aspiration to continue growing our business across the country on the back of offering the highest quality service to our clients.
“Last night’s award as the UK firm of the year comes on the back of Johnston Carmichael winning the Scottish Firm of the Year in their category earlier in the year for the fifth consecutive year.”
