Posted: 19th January 2018

Accountancy firm Chiene + Tait has announced the appointment of Barry Truswell as one of our team of Audit Partners. With over 15 years of audit experience, he joins the firm from a senior role at Scott Moncrieff.

In his new role, Barry will focus mainly on providing audit and assurance services to SME and corporate sector clients, closely collaborating with Chiene + Tait’s Corporate Finance Partner, Paul Mason and Neil Norman, who leads the firm’s award-winning Entrepreneurial Tax Team.

Barry’s appointment coincides with a strong period of growth at Chiene + Tait. The firm has seen a 14 per cent rise in turnover in the last year while opening new offices in Glasgow and Inverness and also investing in key areas including its Corporate Finance team.

Jeremy Chittleburgh, Senior Partner and Head of Chiene + Tait’s Audit Department, said: “Barry’s appointment brings further strength and depth to our audit team. His experience of working with start-ups, SMEs and large businesses will be invaluable in supporting strong, tailored due process across our client base”.

Commenting on his appointment, Barry Truswell said: “I’m really excited about joining the team at Chiene + Tait. I am particularly looking forward to helping further develop the firm’s approach of working collaboratively with clients across a number of key sectors, including property, entrepreneurs and not for profit, as well as private clients, and contributing to the continuing growth of the business.”
