Anderson Anderson and Brown (AAB) has announced that Gill Pryde and Kevin Meaney will retire as partners from the business at the end of March 2022.
Pryde has reportedly played a “leading role” in the growth and diversification of the business throughout her 26 years with AAB, having joined in 1996. AAB said she helped to build AAB’s team of tax specialists to support the needs of the firm’s expanding client base.
Meanwhile, Meaney spearheaded the launch of AAB’s Edinburgh office in 2017. He has worked alongside the Edinburgh leadership team to grow the headcount to over 50, with teams operating across all AAB services.
Since merging with Glasgow-based firm Hardie Caldwell, AAB’s income across the Central Belt now accounts for over £9m of group revenues.
Graeme Allan, AAB chief executive, said: “Gill and Kevin have been fantastic business partners who have contributed hugely to the continued success of AAB. Gill’s dedication over nearly three decades is in no small way what’s contributed to both the domestic and international growth of the groups’ client base as well as the success of the team.
“They have passed on a wealth of knowledge to their colleagues and respective successors across the business; we have learned a lot from them over the years.”
He added: “Whilst we will of course miss them day-to-day, we look forward to continuing our relationship with them all as valued members of the AAB Alumni.”
