Eight young chartered accountants from Johnston Carmichael, Scotland’s largest independent accountancy and business advisory firm, have been recognised by professional body ICAS as top performers in the industry.

The ICAS Top 100 Young CAs list showcases chartered accountants under the age of 35 who are leading the way in the accounting, business and finance profession.

Published annually, the list is compiled from a worldwide nomination pool following a rigorous judging process by an anonymous panel of experts. The CAs selected have demonstrated exceptional skill, innovation, dedication and leadership, and are assessed through the prism of three guiding themes: trust, talent, and technology.

Eight of the 100 trailblazers featured come from Johnston Carmichael, which has 12 offices across Scotland. Those included on the list are: Sophie Mathers, Lisa Thomson, Darren Robertson and Jade MacLaren, who are all based in the firm’s Aberdeen office; Karen McBride from Glasgow; Robert Gray in Huntly; Martin Bannerman in Inverness; and Steven Massie in Inverurie.

This success follows last year’s ICAS list which saw 10 members of the Johnston Carmichael team featured. Andrew Walker, Chief Executive at Johnston Carmichael, said:

We are extremely proud of our team at Johnston Carmichael, and to be recognised by ICAS across the profession on a worldwide basis is a very well-deserved accolade for our eight rising stars. 2020 has been a challenging year for businesses and individuals all around the world, and for Johnston Carmichael to feature so prominently on the list again this year is testament to the hard work and talent of our people. I’d like to thank each and every one of our Top 100 Young CAs for their commitment and tenacity, and I look forward to seeing them continue to flourish.
