AAB announces trio of director appointments
AAB, the tech-enabled business-critical services group, has announced three internal director promotions within its leadership team.
Forming a key part of the group’s ambitious growth plans, these promotions follow on from AAB’s announcement of five partner appointments earlier this month.
Graeme Robertson and Chris Thompson have become directors in the business, alongside Martyn Paterson of AAB Wealth.
Graeme Robertson, who is based in Aberdeen, specialises in joint venture (JV) and contract audit in the energy sector. He has played a significant role in the development of AAB’s specialist JV and contact audit business, John F Daly Associates. As director, he will continue to drive the growth of this division, supporting clients across the globe.
With a wealth of experience in the corporate finance arena, Chris Thompson is a key member of AAB’s growing deals team. Working across the Glasgow and Edinburgh offices, Chris has contributed significantly to AAB’s recent deal successes, including supporting clients such as Donaldson Group and Puma Private Equity on several transactions in recent years.
Chartered Financial Planner Martyn Paterson joined AAB Wealth in 2018, and since then has contributed extensively to the growth of the business in Aberdeen. Martyn is dedicated to providing clients with confidence in their financial future through understanding their needs, and working with them to develop, implement and manage a financial planning strategy that reflects their individual circumstances, both now and in the future.
Graeme Allan, chief executive at AAB, commented: “These promotions are thoroughly well deserved, and recognise the skill, expertise and contributions of each individual. I am delighted to welcome them to the leadership team where they bring valuable experience from some very specialist areas, and different locations, across the group.
“In addition to demonstrating the commitment to our ambitious growth plans, this most recent investment in our leadership team will enable us to meet our clients’ diverse needs across a rapidly changing professional services market, both in the UK and globally.”
