AZ Next Generation Advisory has recruited former CountPlus Chief Operating Officer Graham McGeagh to help spearhead the group’s expansion plans.
McGeagh, who also served as a Director of eleven Countplus-owned professional services firms including three as Chair, will join AZ NGA in early 2022 and report to Chief Executive Officer, Paul Barrett.
A statement from the company says McGeagh’s role will include overseeing the delivery of AZ NGA’s offer and service proposition to member firms, driving business transformation initiatives, and helping execute the group’s vision and strategy.
…the timing of McGeagh’s appointment reflected AZ NGA’s growth over the past six years…
Barrett says the timing of McGeagh’s appointment reflected AZ NGA’s growth over the past six years, “…having completed 99 transactions to build a national network of accounting and financial advisory SMEs with annual revenues of more than $120 million.”
Barrett adds that McGeagh brings valuable skills and experience to AZ NGA and his appointment strengthens the senior leadership team.
Prior to joining Countplus in 2018, McGeagh was Chief Executive Officer of Benson Radiology and Chief Executive Officer of Finlayson Lawyers.
His appointment follows a broader restructure at AZ NGA, which saw Partner and former Chief Operating Officer Paul Brain take on expanded responsibilities in addition to M&A, legal, banking and treasury.
