New partner appointment at EQ Accountants

Louise Grant, who heads up the firm’s Healthcare team, has been appointed as partner at the Dundee office of EQ Accountants LLP.

Monifieth born and bred, Louise joined the firm as a graduate of Abertay University in 2003. She undertook her examinations with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), qualifying in 2006.

EQ Accountants’ Healthcare team works with a broad cross-spectrum of organisations and individuals, ranging from dentists, GPs and nursing home operators, to vets, nurseries and pharmacies.

Mother-of-two Louise said, “Having joined the firm as a graduate 14 years ago and risen through the ranks, I have gained a significant amount of experience working with a range of clients across most areas of the firm. I like to think that I have evolved as the firm has, and am proud to have carved out my career with EQ as it has grown through the years.”

David Morrison, Dundee Partner added, “Since Louise joined us in 2003, EQ has successfully positioned itself as a significant player in the Scottish accountancy sector and we continue to attract the very best people to work with us. However, it is particularly heartening to be announcing Louise’s promotion to Partner. As a prime example of homegrown talent, Louise has played, and will continue to play a key role in the success and growth of EQ, and we are delighted to have her join our team of Partners.”

With offices in Cupar, Dundee, Forfar and Glenrothes, EQ employs over 100 staff, and now has 15 Partners. With plans to grow further and recruit into a range of positions within the months ahead, EQ’s current turnover is over £6.5M.
