ACCOUNTANCY and business advisory firm, Johnston Carmichael has added to its leadership team with two promotions across the North-east.
Gillian McColgan, from the firm’s Aberdeen office and Jane Mitchell based in Inverurie, have been made directors.

With her roots running deep in farming, Jane is also the bookkeeper at the family farm and does occasional lecturing to SRUC MSc Agricultural Professional Practice students.
The news comes soon after the announcement of three new office heads for the firm in Aberdeen, Inverness and Forfar as part of its long-term succession plan.
Andrew Walker, Johnston Carmichael chief executive, said: “We are thoroughly committed to supporting our talented employees right across the firm and I absolutely believe that we are nurturing some of the very best talent in the industry.
“Those individuals who have been promoted have been at the vanguard of efforts to guide our clients during the coronavirus pandemic, through what has been an undeniably challenging time for the business community.
“This December saw 36 of our people promoted across a range of offices and business lines, taking our total promotions for the year across the firm to 70.”
