As part of a significant investment in its business technology consulting (BTC) practice, business advisers and accountants Scott-Moncrieff has appointed Fraser Nicol as Partner to lead the BTC team.
Fraser joins 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.
Based in Glasgow, but also working across Scott-Moncrieff’s offices in Edinburgh and Inverness, Fraser will be tasked with implementing Scott-Moncrieff’s ambitious strategy to build the strongest business technology consulting practice in Scotland. This will include introducing new client services in the areas of data analytics, cyber-crime and risk, programme assurance and digital transformation.
With almost 20 years’ experience in the field, working both in consultancy and industry, Fraser 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.”
