Equiom Scotland appoints new Managing Director

Thursday 09 November 2017

Equiom has appointed Sarah Weir to the position of Managing Director for Equiom Scotland.

Sarah previously held the role of Finance Director and Head of Operations before being promoted to Managing Director, a position which became available when the Interim MD, Stevie Christian returned to his principal role of Head of Integration – Europe. 

Sarah will be responsible for the overall performance of the business and for ensuring all activity is in line with group strategy. She will lead a large team of experienced operators and accountants, spanning management accounts, payroll, payments and collections, UK statutory accounting and tax. Sarah is Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualified and has been working for Equiom Scotland (formally Eagle Consulting) for 3 years, with over 22 years’ experience in professional accountancy operations and services.

Global CEO of Equiom, Sheila Dean commented on the appointment:

‘Welcoming Sarah as Managing Director of Equiom Scotland is a real triumph for Equiom as it marks a true growth period and substantial footprint onshore within the UK. Sarah’s experience and knowledge of all areas of the business will prove integral to our growth and she will continue to make a valuable contribution to our team. As a well-known figure in Inverness, and the hospitality accounting sector in the UK, Sarah has developed an extensive network that will help drive business development with specific client focus.’

Sarah added:

‘I believe that my experience in the people, operations, and systems in Inverness will help drive growth and allow us to continue to deliver service excellence for all of our clients.  I am particularly excited about the investment in training and systems which has delivered a wider footprint for payroll outside of the UK, and a more advanced accounting software solution which will better serve our management accounts clients. There will be a number of challenges we face over the coming years with cloud based technology solutions for accountancy in particular, but I am confident that the highly skilled and experienced teams at Equiom Scotland will deliver a specialist service to enable our clients to understand their businesses and drive their profitability.’
