Scottish firm has set its sights on building the strongest business consulting practice in the country and has invested heavily in the division
Business advisory and accountancy firm Scott-Moncrieff has appointed Fraser Nicol to lead its business technology consultancy team.
Nicol joins as partner from the London headquarters of a global ‘big four’ firm, where he played a central role in developing technology risk consulting, cyber security and data analytic services.
He will work across Scott-Moncrieff’s offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness and is tasked with implementing Scott-Moncrieff’s strategy to build the strongest business technology consulting practice in Scotland.
According to the firm, this will include introducing new client services in the areas of data analytics, cyber-crime and risk, programme assurance and digital transformation.
With nearly 20 years’ experience in the field, working both in consultancy and industry, Nicol has provided advice to the highest levels of central government and to FTSE boards.
He has also held board and committee positions with the ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association) and the Tech UK Cyber Security Management and Defence and Security Board.
Stewart MacDonald, Managing Partner of Scott-Moncrieff,said: “Fraser’s appointment will invigorate our already busy business technology team, and allow us to expand this service in line with growing client demand and rapidly developing technology.
“Alongside financial governance, information governance is increasingly important to organisations, with the two becoming more connected than ever before. Furthermore, with the financial health and reputation of an organisation so intertwined with its ability to protect and analyse data, technology consulting is frequently part of the rounded service we provide to clients that take a holistic approach to their performance.”
