We are delighted to announce that Graeme Bryson has stepped into the role of Managing Partner, taking over from Robert Fergusson after 12 years at the helm.

Both Graeme and Robert will continue to be client-focused and the team here at William Duncan are excited to continue to work alongside them, supporting their vision and leadership.

Graeme who has been a partner at William Duncan Accountants for 29 years as an ACA and Chartered Tax Advisor has this to say on his new role…

“Being appointed as managing partner for William Duncan is truly an honour and I’m looking forward to working closely with my fellow partners and team as we continue to grow and develop our service offerings to support our clients with their most complex challenges both now and in the future.

“I would like to thank Robert for his outstanding contribution in growing the practice over the last 12 years. During his tenure, Robert has positioned the firm as one of the most digitally advanced, progressive advisory practices in the country, and I am very much looking forward to continuing to work with him in his new role.”

Robert who has served as Managing Partner for 12 years and has been with William Duncan for 30 years shares the following…

“Having served as Managing Partner for approximately 12 years, the time has come for me to pass on the torch and usher in a new phase for our team.

Our transition promises to be seamless, and I have every confidence that Graeme’s leadership will bring a fresh and dynamic perspective to drive the overall success of William Duncan Accountants. The incredible teamwork we’ve fostered will continue, with Graeme taking the lead in steering our collective ship.

Reflecting on my time as Managing Partner, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this journey. Our achievements as a team have been nothing short of remarkable, having positioned the firm as one of the most digitally advanced, progressive advisory practices in the country, and I couldn’t be prouder.

William Duncan boasts an exceptional team, and the past year as part of the Dains Group has only strengthened our commitment to excellence. I am pleased that much of our approach has been recognised and adopted group-wide, as the “William Duncan” way has become synonymous with best practice.

So much so, I am delighted to say that I will be staying on board to lead the delivery of William Duncan Evolve, where digital and cloud accountancy services meet the needs of ambitious businesses, focusing on rolling out and perfecting this initiative within William Duncan before taking it to the wider group.

With Graeme at the helm as Managing Partner and myself as Evolve Delivery Lead, we are well-positioned to strengthen and enhance William Duncan Accountants for our clients, our team and the wider community.

Thank you for your ongoing support, and I look forward to the exciting opportunities that lie ahead for all of us.”

Congratulations to both leaders on their new respective roles.


Now part of the Dains Group of Companies
