Saffery appoints new director and continues Edinburgh office growth with three new hires

New hires in Edinburgh

Saffery has appointed a new director to its Edinburgh office along with three other new hires.

This follows the recent announcement of its office move to Haymarket Square later this year to accommodate its growing team, which advises clients across the private client, landed estates, not for profit, real estate and corporate sectors.

Joshua Creedy, Private Wealth Director, joined the firm in May 2024, adding further depth to its longstanding private client offering. Joshua advises clients on a wide range of issues including inheritance and succession planning, property and business investments and disposals and cross-border non-resident and non-domicile matters. Prior to joining Saffery, Joshua trained as a chartered accountant and tax advisor and worked for almost a decade at a Big Four firm.

In addition, Saffery has also appointed Yi Zheng as Sustainability and ESG Manager, establishing an enhanced sustainability offering for the benefit of the firm’s clients in Edinburgh, and complementing Saffery’s UK-wide sustainability and ESG practice which now consists of 15 professionals.

Saffery has also added Anny Chan as Data Administrator and Sam Stone as Trainee Chartered Accountant to the Edinburgh office.

Sean McGinness, Partner and Head of the Edinburgh office, said:

“I would like to warmly welcome all our new joiners and very much look forward to working with each of them as we expand in Edinburgh, and develop our offering to meet the needs of our client base which continues to grow and diversify. Taken together our Edinburgh team is now more than 60-strong, and with the upcoming move to our new city centre premises we are ideally positioned to support the continued development of our team and to help our clients succeed in their markets.”

Joshua Creedy, Private Wealth Director at Saffery LLP, comments:

“This is a really exciting time for Saffery and I am thrilled to have joined the team. 9 Haymarket Square, the location for our upcoming office relocation, is a fantastic space and will allow the Edinburgh team to continue to grow our offerings across service lines. The Edinburgh practice has grown 30% over the past three years both in terms of headcount and turnover and I’m looking forward to playing a part in its continued expansion.”
