Hall Morrice today 08/02/2013 announces two new director level appointments within the chartered accountancy firm. Des Petrie takes up the role of Audit and Accounts Director and Kelly Cumming (nee Munro) has been appointed Business Advisory Director. These newly created positions, which come into effect from 1st January 2013, will strengthen both accounting teams and allow the firm to expand.

Des Petrie joined Hall Morrice thirteen years ago as a graduate from The University of Aberdeen. Des has progressed with the firm to hold Responsible Individual (RI) status in respect of audit assignments. He became Senior Audit Manager in 2006, before being promoted to Audit Principal in 2008.

Kelly Cumming began a work placement with Hall Morrice ten years ago as part of her degree, and became a permanent team member after graduating from the Robert Gordon University in 2004. She undertook her Chartered Accountancy training with the firm and upon qualifying in 2007 was appointed Business Advisory Manager.

Shonagh Fraser, Partner at Hall Morrice says, "At Hall Morrice we have a large and growing client base and in order to meet their requirements, it's essential that we have the right team in place. We look for the most talented individuals to join our firm and continually invest in their development to create a high calibre team of accountancy professionals."

"We have always recruited high quality accounting graduates, retaining 90% of graduates once they qualify. We work to support them throughout their career and Des and Kelly's director level appointments demonstrate that this development strategy is building a sustainable future in staff terms."

"The promotion of Des and Kelly will further strengthen our senior management team as they both bring extensive experience and valuable knowledge to their new roles. Des will take on the responsibility for overseeing our audit and accounts team, whilst Kelly's new role will focus on expansion of our client base within our Business Advisory team."
