New additions to Deloitte's top team

"BIG four" accountancy firm Deloitte has promoted Angela Mitchell to the rank of partner and appointed her as head of its public sector team in Scotland.

Her switch follows Pat Kenny being appointed as a director with the same team and John Watt as an associate partner.

Deloitte's financial services team has also been busy with promotions, with Edinburgh-based Craig Cosham and Kevin Doherty, in its Glasgow office, both becoming partners.

A further six staff in the firm's practices have been promoted to director level.

The firm has also welcomed Ian Smith back to its corporate finance team after a spell working in the banking industry.

James Baird, senior partner for Scotland, says: "Our people are our greatest asset and it's great to share in their success. We're very proud of them and of what they do for our clients."

Accountants at Henderson Loggie have also been busy of late. However, instead of counting their clients' money, they've been raising cash for Cancer Research UK, the firm's nominated charity.

Staff in the firm's Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow offices raised 1,352 for the research body by holding a raffle and running the 5km Race for Life.

Edinburgh-based partner Jandy Stevenson says: "Everyone at Henderson Loggie is delighted to be helping Cancer Research UK in this way, and we hope to be able to add significantly to the funds raised over the coming year."

And while we're on the subject of accountants, last week we reported on Bruce Connelly's move from law firm Anderson Strathern to mid-tier accountancy practice French Duncan.

While Connelly was Anderson Strathern's head of tax, he isn't actually a solicitor by trade, and will be French Duncan's new tax director.

Talking of law firms, Pinsent Masons has secured the services of Norman Smith, one of Scotland's best-known property lawyers, as a consultant.
