The Press and Journal (Moray) - - BUSINESS - BY KEITH FINDLAY

Ac­count­ing and busi­ness ad­vice firm Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), has an­nounced ex­pan­sion into Ed­in­burgh.

Aberdeen-based AAB said yes­ter­day its plans for the cap­i­tal would cre­ate 100 jobs within three years. A quar­ter of these new roles are al­ready filled, it added.

The new of­fice in Foun­tain­bridge, Ed­in­burgh, in the heart of the city’s “dig­i­tal cor­ri­dor”, is part of a growth strat­egy to dou­ble rev­enue across the group to £40 mil­lion.

AAB has been build­ing its pres­ence in Ed­in­burgh over the past six months.

Man­ag­ing part­ner Graeme Al­lan added: “We have al­ways worked with clients in the cen­tral belt and have been con­sid­er­ing our mar­ket en­try strat­egy for the last 12 months as part of our growth plan.

“The de­ci­sion to move into Ed­in­burgh is in­cred­i­bly ex­cit­ing as we look to cre­ate 100 new jobs and de­liver 20% of our group rev­enue from

Ed­in­burgh within three years. These are am­bi­tious tar­gets but ones which we feel we can de­liver on.

“In ad­di­tion to our growth plans for Ed­in­burgh, the mar­ket in Aberdeen is con­tin­u­ing to pro­vide us with new op­por­tu­ni­ties and ar­eas to ex­pand.”
