Saffery Champness appoints partner


Accountancy firm Saffery Champness has appointed Donald Forsyth as a partner based in the firm’s Inverness office, with effect from 1 April.

Forsyth was most recently managing partner at EY’s Inverness office. He previously spent 17 years with Scott-Moncrieff, where he served as a commercial partner leading the firm’s business advisory group and served on the executive and strategy board from 2011 to 2014.
Following the recent announcement by EY to reduce the size of the Inverness office, Saffery Champness and Forsyth have worked closely together to be able to offer a continued service for a number of local clients.
Forsyth specialises in advising owner-managed businesses, entrepreneurs and not-for-profit entities across the Highlands of Scotland and further afield. He has worked with many of the largest businesses and charities in Scotland. Forsyth’s client work has included ambitious local, national and international businesses. He has extensive experience of SMEs across all sectors, including technology, professional services, property and forestry. He focuses on helping business owners achieve their objectives, including financial security for their families.
Forsyth and his team will work with fellow partners Susie Swift, Shirley Mathieson and Coll Murchison-MacDonald and existing staff in Inverness. His appointment further boosts Saffery Champness’ presence in Scotland, with its teams in Inverness and Edinburgh having grown significantly over the past five years.
Rob Elliott, managing partner of Saffery Champness, says: “I am very pleased to welcome Donald to Saffery Champness. He brings with him a wealth of experience that is closely aligned with the key sectors we operate in. His expertise and knowledge will be a real asset to our clients and we look forward to working with him as we continue to build our presence in Inverness.”
Forsyth adds: “I am excited to join the Saffery Champness partnership. The firm has an excellent reputation, and I look forward to working with the team in Inverness and my fellow partners across Scotland and the UK to continue to provide market-leading advice to clients.”
