Accountant Roger Dunnett has retired as a partner of the Dundee firm Walker Dunnett.

Birmingham-born Mr Dunnett began his career with a small practice where he qualified before moving to Ernst and Young where he became a manager.

During five years spent away from the profession selling computers to accountants, he was sent to Scotland and settled in Perth.

He returned to accountancy in 1984 and joined the practice of Richard Walker, which became Walker Dunnett & Co and now employs a team of 30 people in Dundee and Carnoustie.

Andy Walker took over from his father 13 years ago, and he now becomes senior partner of the company which will keep its name.

“I am 65 and it is time for me to move on after a career which has seen many changes,” Mr Dunnett said.

“One of the main ones is computerisation which has made things like management accounts and cash flow forecasts much quicker.”

Mr Dunnett is replaced as a partner and team head by South African Danie van Niekerk who is originally from Cape Town and now lives in Carnoustie.
