People: Sandra Rodger makes six at accountant
Audit specialist Sandra Rodger has completed her rise from apprentice to partner as she moves to accountancy firm Grant Thornton in Scotland.
Having left school at 16, Rodger has worked her way to the top from an apprenticeship scheme in Newcastle. She qualified in 1999 with Deloitte, before being headhunted by PwC, where she remained until joining Grant Thornton. She is the firm’s sixth top-level recruit this year.
Promotion at Begbies Traynor
Begbies Traynor has also just appointed its sixth partner in Scotland, with the promotion of Dundee office director Jenn Stewart.
The one-time financial analyst joined Begbies in 2004 having previously worked as a senior insolvency administrator in Edinburgh. With more than ten years’ experience in insolvency, Stewart was appointed as director with Begbies Traynor in January 2010.
Ken Pattullo, managing partner at Begbies, said: “As head of our Dundee office, Jenn has made a significant contribution to building our presence in the region as well as to the success of the Scottish practice as a whole. This promotion is a reflection of the key role she has played and we are confident that she will continue to help us to grow our Scottish practice.”
Some day son, all of this will be ours
The father and son behind Scottish hi-fi manufacturer Linn have seen their passion for music rewarded with a royal seal of approval.
Linn Products managing director Gilad Tiefenbrun and his father Ivor, founder and chairman of the company, were last week presented with the

The award reflects the success of Linn’s new generation of music systems based on its digital streaming technology.
Gilad Tiefenbrun said: “Innovation has been at the heart of Linn for the past 40 years and with our commitment to digital streaming, long will it continue.”
Digital streaming accounts for more than 40 per cent of Linn’s business, with success worldwide helped by the recent launch of new technology that greatly improves the audio quality of movies, games and online services such as Spotify, YouTube and Netflix.
