Team Profiles

  • Matt Donnelly Managing Director

    I'm the owner of AD+, and am passionately interested in its success, and yours.  The best way to understand me (and our firm) is to read about the 'trinity' of our commitment to you - not quite the holy trinity, but a very powerful one indeed. It includes our Core Values, our Core Commitments, and our Brand Promise, and we stand on it 100%.

  • Michael Donnelly Partner

    What I enjoy most is interacting with clients to assist them in achieving their goals. What I think AD+ does best is providing more than a typical compliance based service – we want to make a real difference to your results.  Our focus is always on what your goals are and our services are tailored to optimise the chance of achieving those goals.

  • David Charles Marketing Manager

    I really enjoy helping ambitious entrepreneurs achieve their business and personal goals. I have now 30 years business experience, including 25 years hands-on practical experience running my own business. AD+ is an ambitious company, and so we relate exceptionally well to ambitious entrepreneurs.

  • Colin Lumsden Director of Commercial Operations

    My primary role is that of client relationship – helping business owners with annual accounts and management accounts, as well as business coaching and strategy work (which is the part I enjoy the most).  It’s great when business owners address profit maximisation, and their business and their life improves because of it.

  • Fiona Struthers Chartered Accountant, Technical Manager

    It would be hard to fit all that I do within one job title, but I manage the service to our audit and our charity clients, review the work carried out by the production team, monitor, quality control and ensure our accounting service is technically accurate. I’m also the Investor in People coordinator.

  • Angela McKendrick Finance & Administration Director

    My role involves working closely with all the team at AD+, managing and organising workflow, and taking care of the financials for our own firm.  I’ve been with AD+ for 23 years, and I really enjoy it. What we do best here is winning and retaining clients – once you come on board with us, you stay!

  • Karen Laverty Payroll Manager

    Payroll, HR and tax are my primary responsibilities, and this involves a good deal of prioritising, organising, and planning. I really enjoy the problem solving element of my work. I came to AD+ with over ten years of payroll experience, and 4 years HR experience so I’m familiar with most payroll & HR issues! I think as a firm we’re best at teamwork.

  • Frances Burns PA to MD & IT Administrator

    I’ve been working with AD+ for the past 23 years, and love working here! I enjoy keeping busy, having done a variety of different types of tax and administrative work during my time here.  I think what we do best is providing accountancy, taxation, and payroll services to our clients in a friendly and efficient manner.

  • Tracey Menzies PA to M. Donnelly, Sales & Marketing Administrator

    I’m Matt’s personal assistant, and I’d say that job title reflects me perfectly!  Matt’s diary is incredibly busy, so I manage that, speak to clients regularly, and also help with the marketing for the firm. I really enjoy speaking to our clients, and helping keep Matt’s diary – and the firm’s activities – organised.

  • Lauren McGhee Administration Assistant

    I’m primarily responsible for tax and administrative tasks, and really love working here at AD+.  I came to this firm straight from school, and have been here five years.  I really enjoy helping the accounts and finance departments, and am always keen to learn more!

  • Martyn Nicol Accountant

    I am responsible for the preparation of monthly, quarterly and annual management accounts, as well as the calculation of tax, and VAT, Audit of Financial Statements and the preparation of cash flows and projections. I also help a number of clients with their bookkeeping, and provide training on SAGE and Xero bookkeeping systems. I enjoy working at ad+, and have found that we all work quickly, efficiently and effectively together as a team.

  • Jonathan Barber Trainee Accountant

    I am responsible for Management Accounts and  the preparation of annual accounts, as well as, calculations of Tax,  VAT preparation, and bookkeeping. I really enjoy helping clients with their bookkeeping. I have already learned a lot in the short space of time I have been with AD+. I really enjoy the atmosphere here and everyone pulls together to deliver a service above and beyond our client expectations. 

  • Elaine Muir Receptionist

    I’m the receptionist here, so you'll likely see me first thing when you visit us! I’ve been with AD+ for five years, and I think what AD+ does best is keep things professional, and put clients first.  

    I’m passionate about most things I do, I love to be happy and make others happy, and clients are often commenting on my positive outlook!

  • Jacob Aitchison Trainee Accountant

    I have recently joined ad+ to begin my accounting career by starting my CA qualification. I plan to learn and develop my accounting skills throughout the process with the help and support of the team at ad+.

    I look forward to building a relationship with many clients and aim to support them to ensure that their needs from the company are satisfied.

  • Stuart Miller Accountant

    My aim is always to provide advice, and prepare reports, which help client’s make more informed decisions about their business. I enjoy working with people to solve problems and meet targets, and it’s very personally satisfying to work closely with new businesses as they grow and achieve their goals.
