Anderson Anderson and Brown (AAB) has announced that Graeme Robertson and Chris Thompson have become directors in the business, alongside Martyn Paterson of AAB Wealth.
The three internal director promotions within its leadership team form as part of the group’s growth plans.
Robertson, who is based in Aberdeen, specialises in joint venture (JV) and contract audit in the energy sector. He has played a “significant role” in the development of AAB’s specialist JV and contact audit business, John F Daly Associates.
In his new role as director, he will continue to drive the growth of this division, supporting clients across the globe.
Meanwhile, Thompson has a wealth of experience in the corporate finance arena, and he is a “key” member of AAB’s growing deals team.
Working across the firm’s Glasgow and Edinburgh offices, AAB said Thompson has “contributed significantly” to its recent deal successes, including supporting clients such as Donaldson Group and Puma Private Equity on several transactions in recent years.
Additionally, Paterson joined AAB Wealth in 2018 and has since contributed to the growth of the business in Aberdeen.
As a chartered financial planner, Paterson supports clients in their financial future through understanding their needs, and working with them to develop, implement and manage a financial planning strategy.
Graeme Allan, chief executive at AAB, said: “These promotions are thoroughly well deserved, and recognise the skill, expertise and contributions of each individual. I am delighted to welcome them to the leadership team where they bring valuable experience from some very specialist areas, and different locations, across the group.
“In addition to demonstrating the commitment to our ambitious growth plans, this most recent investment in our leadership team will enable us to meet our clients’ diverse needs across a rapidly changing professional services market, both in the UK and globally.”
These three promotions follow on from AAB’s announcement of five partner appointments earlier this month.
