RSM announces three partner appointments to support growth in Scotland
Audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has promoted Victoria Kirkhope to partner within its internal people team and appointed two new partners, Grant Morrison and Paul O’Leary to strengthen the audit and technology risk assurance teams, respectively.
Glasgow-based Ms Kirkhope is RSM’s head of people and focuses on representing and advancing the firm’s people agenda – driving continuous improvement of talent attraction, development and employee well-being. Her promotion took effect on April 1.
Mr Morrison is a prominent auditor having worked at PwC in Aberdeen, Houston and Oman for 24 years predominantly working with large and mid-tier international corporates. He brings a wealth of oil and gas experience both upstream and oil field services to the team; and wider expertise across real estate, construction, retail, automotive, tourism, hospitality and leisure sectors. In his new role, Grant will enhance the audit capability in Aberdeen and help to grow the practice regionally and across Scotland.
Mr O’Leary joins RSM from KPMG with over 17 years of experience advising businesses on all aspects of digital risk including cyber, third party risk, change assurance, operational resilience and governance for robotics and artificial intelligence. He also brings financial services, technology, retail, energy, construction and government sector expertise to his new role. Paul will support businesses across the North to maximise digital opportunities while mitigating risk.
Alex Tait, RSM’s regional managing partner in Scotland, said: “Each appointment is testimony to the talent and expertise of each individual. Victoria has played a crucial role in enhancing the culture and people agenda within the firm, and Grant and Paul bring particular experience that complements and enhances our Scottish offering.
