Accounting giant increases number of Scottish partners
ACCOUNTING giant PwC expanded its number of financial partners to 34 in Scotland, as former Scottish President Lindsay Gardiner retired.
Two new partners were admitted, while two more moved into the company’s operations in Scotland. Shujaat Khan, an Edinburgh-based financial services audit partner, and Glasgow-based Scott Lawson, who works in the advisory field, have become partners, after serving as directors. Meanwhile, Martin Cowie moved to Aberdeen from Belfast to lead the company’s energy transition work, and Gregor Lindsay returned from London to Glasgow to lead the transactions practice.
Five new directors for Scotland have also been named: Lauren Atkins, Gillian Collin, Kimberley Dixon, Jane Ferguson and Adam Turner.
The changes came as PwC veteran Mr. Gardiner retired after 32 years with the company. Mr Gardiner, who served as Scottish President from 2012 to 2019, said: âI had a fantastic time at PwC working with very talented colleagues and many high quality Scottish business organizations in audit roles, transaction and advice. One of the joys has been helping others build and develop their careers and I am sure PwC will continue to grow stronger by continuing to invest in talent across all industries.
