AN international accounting firm has moved into new offices in Glasgow and hired a new manager for Scotland.

Mazars will now work from offices at 100 Queen Street in the city with Laura Clarkson as the new office managing partner for Scotland, consisting of Edinburgh, Perth and Glasgow offices.

Clarkson succeeds Margaret Laidlaw, who takes responsibility for building on elev8, Mazars’ solution for SMEs, across the UK. Clarkson has been a partner at Mazars for five years, with particular expertise in advisory services for the legal and healthcare sectors.

Clarkson said: “This move is a real statement of intent and a sign of our commitment to growing our presence in Glasgow. With state of the art technology in place, and a modern layout, 100 Queen Street reflects our contemporary approach to work. I’m delighted to be at the helm during this exciting move: in recent years, we have grown significantly in Scotland and this move shows that we’re ready to build on that momentum.”
