Meet Our Team

Graeme Wright

Starting his career in a small local firm, Graeme gained an extensive and wide ranging experience of all aspects of accountancy before moving onto one of the largest independent accountancy firms in Scotland. There, he spent 12 years learning his trade and went on to manage a portfolio of over 100 clients. These clients were spread across many sectors, gaining valuable insight into a wide variety of SME and unincorporated businesses. He holds an ACCA practicing certificate and his specialism lies within Business Advisory.

Graeme’s biggest selling point is his ability to build great client relationships through excellent communication and a genuine care for their business. He’ll regularly go above and beyond for the client’s needs where required and has clients based all over Scotland.

Outside of the office, Graeme’s biggest passion is football, where he’s recently pulled the boots back on in the Scottish Over 35’s League set up for his local side. He’s also a keen golfer and self admittedly as the legs begin to take that bit longer to recover after Friday night games, this is more likely where you’ll find him as the year’s progress!

Steven Barr

Steven has a wealth of experience in the accountancy profession having spent more than 15 years working with a variety of firms including a top 4 accountancy practice and one of Scotland’s largest independent firms which have allowed him to gain a wide ranging experience through working with a variety of UK clients and dealing with the associated challenges and complexities. In 2020, Steven started his own business which has allowed him to build on the job experience of how to run and build a successful business which has given him the expertise to advise new business start-ups, sole traders and established businesses.

Steven is passionate about helping others and endeavours to provide a proactive service by communicating in a straightforward manner to help clients understand.

Away from the office, Steven loves spending time on the golf course as well as playing football when not going along to support his local team.
