We are excited to announce that Robert Young, Principal Manager in our Forfar office, has been named in the Accountancy Age ’35 Under 35 2019′ list.

We are delighted that Robert’s hard work has been recognised within the prestigious rankings that showcase the industry’s rising talent, and features professionals from across the UK who have made great professional contributions to the field and their individual firms.

The news follows our double celebration in July where another two of our Principal Managers, Rachel Bell and Scott Greig were named in the 2019’s ICAS Top 100 Young CAs list.

Robert joined EQ as part of our school leaver programme in 2004 with no previous accountancy experience but has shown continued dedication and commitment to his professional development and to the firm. He gained his ACCA qualification in 2013, and quickly moved up the ranks to become Principal Manager in 2019.

He is a key member of our EQ Agriculture team where he has developed extensive knowledge and experience of the agricultural sector. Robert also heads up our Private Client Tax team, dealing with complex tax matters affecting individuals including Inheritance Tax planning, Capital Gains Tax, Trust and Estate Taxation and Income Tax planning.

David Cameron, Managing Partner, commented; “I am delighted that Robert has been recognised within the Accountancy Age ’35 Under 35 2019′ rankings. Robert has always shown dedication to his ongoing development over the last 15 years and it has been fantastic to see his progression, embracing more responsibility to become a trusted leader within our profession.”

Huge congratulations to Robert, who greatly deserves the recognition – we are proud of his achievements and wish him continued success!
