Ms Cheburdanidze is a highly qualified accountant, holding an ACA qualification from ICAEW in addition to an MA in Accounting and Finance and a BA in World Economics. Her move underlines RSM’s continued commitment to expanding its Scottish team of nearly 300 partners and staff, and the breadth and depth of expertise it can offer clients across the country.
Ewan Grant, office managing partner, RSM Edinburgh, said: “Irina is a much-valued and highly skilled member of the RSM team, and I’m delighted she has decided to join us in Scotland. At what continues to be a very difficult time for businesses across the country, I’m confident Irina will play a major role in supporting RSM’s clients through the ongoing challenges and beyond.”
Ms Cheburdanidze added: “I am excited to be living and working in Edinburgh, a vibrant and historic city which I feel has great potential for growth. Things change very quickly at the moment, and businesses have a big range of compliance and complex accounting needs. It’s great to be working with the teams across the Scottish offices to find the best options for clients in the current financial climate.”
