Leading cross-border accountancy and business advisory firm FPM, an AAB Group Company, has announced the promotion of three key team members to Director roles.

Following a merger with tech-enabled business critical services group, AAB in 2022, FPM has enjoyed a period of exceptional growth. A total of 10 team members have been promoted to senior leadership positions across the AAB Group across Ireland and the UK.

Aveen McShane and Sarah-Jane Murphy, who are both based in the Newry office, have been promoted to the positions of Business Advisory Directors. Caroline Butler, who is based in the Dublin office, takes on the role of Corporate Tax Director.

Feargal McCormack, FPM Managing Partner, congratulated the newly promoted members of the firm’s senior leadership team: “We are on a truly exciting journey with ambitious growth plans, none of which would be possible without our fantastic team collaborating with great clients. So it is particularly gratifying to be able to recognise our team with these well-deserved promotions.

Teresa Campbell, FPM Partner, continued: “As a group we pride ourselves on our commitment to developing our people, and this promotion round is no exception. Aveen, Sarah-Jane and Caroline have all demonstrated superb leadership and commitment to the company, and I’m delighted to see them progress to Director roles. I look forward to working with them, and all of our newly appointed Partners and Directors, as we continue to deliver unparalleled services for our clients.”

Three Scotland-based members of the team have also been promoted to Director:

  • Claire Walker, AAB People Director – Edinburgh
  • Gregor McCallan, Corporate Tax Director – Aberdeen
  • Jenny Buchanan, Virtual Finance Function Director – Aberdeen

A further four AAB team members who are based in the Group’s Scottish offices have been promoted to the role of Partner:

  • Amanda Ollason, Corporate Tax Partner
  • Graeme Penman, Audit Partner
  • Stuart Rose, Audit Partner
  • Linda Kelly, Payroll Partner

A further 46 team members have been promoted across the wider AAB organisation.

AAB Group CEO, Emma Lancaster added: “What a fantastic way to kick-start 2024, by recognising the expert knowledge, commitment and dedication of 56 team members with these richly deserved promotions across our office locations.”

Cross-border accountancy and business advisory firm FPM merged with AAB Group, in May 2022, creating a significant regional presence across the UK and Ireland. Since securing investment from August Equity in October 2021, AAB Group now employs c1,000 people across 12 office locations in the United Kingdom, Ireland and the United States.
