Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), one of the UK’s leading independent firms of Chartered Accountants & Business Advisors, has announced the expansion of its technology advisory offering on the back of growth in its Edinburgh Office, launched earlier this year, and the appointment of Kenny Fraser as Strategic Advisor in the technology sector.

Kenny brings significant consulting, transactional and board experience to AAB having previously been a partner at PWC and for the last 5 years he has been a prominent adviser to technology companies based across the UK. He has worked with a broad range of clients, from early stage companies to large scale global clients, and this experience will be key to his role at AAB where he will be supporting high growth companies.

Kenny’s skills, knowledge and broad range of experience complements the growing technology advisory team at AAB which has seen a particular increase in client demand across the corporate finance, tax, business advisory and consulting arenas. Recent examples include providing technology businesses with the following support & advice: business planning, financial modelling and fund-raising; tax structuring, tax incentives, R&D and patent box claims and VAT advice; cloud accounting, virtual finance function and compliance services and organisation agility and digital transformation consulting.

Key members of the technology advisory team at AAB include Kevin Meaney, Entrepreneurial Tax Partner, Brian McMurray, Head of Equity Funding, Alex Matthews, Digital Director at AAB Consulting, Kenny Fraser, Strategic Adviser in the Technology Sector, Ricky Cowan, Business Development Director and Hilary Dyson, Cloud Accounting Lead at AAB.

Kevin Meaney, also Head of Edinburgh Office at AAB, commented “The reality of the modern world is one of constant change and across the firm we have seen a significant number of client wins in the technology sector. Kenny’s appointment as Strategic Advisor in this space adds a new dimension to our existing capabilities.

The technology sector has become a real focus for us as a firm, most noticeably in the Edinburgh market where there is a real vibrancy. The sector never stands still and neither do the businesses within it meaning that support is required to navigate through the challenges and exploit the opportunities which it presents. Our team understand the needs of businesses today and what is required to grow by offering quick, responsive advice, whatever stage they are at.”
