Sandy Manson, Chief Executive
"Developing people lies at the heart of our success. The kind of work I'm actively involved in includes encouraging a standard of exceptional achievement, bi-monthly meetings with every student across the firm, promoting a culture of hard work and rewards, keeping close contact with awarding bodies such as ICAS, ACA and CIOT, and guiding staff onto the correct career path. I'm not too bashful to say I strongly believe the firm's commitment to seeing our people succeed is greatly helped by what I do."
Iain Abernethy, Learning and Development Director
"All companies promise this and that, but compared to where I've worked before, the difference with Johnston Carmichael is that it happens. There's a buzz about this firm."
