The continued expansion of Fairway Group and Bracken Rothwell has led to the appointment of a new group financial controller and head of operations. Sarah Anderson has taken up the reins at the regulated fiduciary services business and its connected Chartered Accountancy firm.  

She is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland with over 25 years of financial services experience.  

She was most recently a finance director of a local trust company, a position held for 11 years. Prior to that, she worked as an audit manager for an independent firm of accountants in Edinburgh.  

In her new role she will be responsible for overseeing the in-house accounting function for both businesses as well as looking after the operational management of the group.  

She said: “I am excited to be joining such a dynamic, owner-managed business and look forward to being part of the group’s continued success.”  

Alistair Rothwell, MD of Bracken Rothwell said: “We are delighted to welcome Sarah to the team and I am confident that her skill-set and financial experience will help control the varied financial aspects of both businesses.”
