Meet the Team

Our strength lies in our people. A keen focus on investing in our greatest asset means that we developed a committed and formidable team of accountancy, tax and wealth management specialists. We are very proud to introduce you to our team who would love to speak to you!

  • Management
  • Dundee
  • Forfar
  • Montrose
  • Paul Crichton
    Managing Partner

    Paul is a vastly experienced Chartered Accountant and Tax Advisor and has helped MMG Archbold navigate the changing landscape of the accountancy industry. His passion for innovation has helped spearhead MMGA’s adoption of modern technology and online accountancy. The benefits in his eyes are clear; let computers do what they are great at; getting the numbers right. MMGA can then spend more time doing what they are great at; guiding you to success.

    When he isn’t working closely with clients to give them invaluable advice you are likely to find him playing football or spending time with his family. He may not have made the Scottish national side, but he is a star player for MMGA.

  • Graeme Loudon
    Partner

    Graeme is fundamental to the MMG Archbold business in his role as the Audit Compliance Partner. Graeme is on hand to make absolutely sure that your business is compliant and gives you peace of mind that no nasty surprises will ever trip you up. Not only is Graeme a specialist in auditing he is also responsible for managing MMGA’s outsourcing department and has many years’ experience in accounting assignments and tax compliance.

    When Graeme isn’t lowering the costs in your business you’ll find him trying to lower his handicap on the golf course, and he has also acted as the finance convener of Arbroath Golf Links for the past 20 years. He loves getting out on the course, but we think it might just be a front and it’s calculating his Stableford points he can’t get enough of.

  • Derek Grant
    Partner

    Derek is a Chartered Accountant and Licenced Insolvency Practitioner and heads up our insolvency team. With many years’ experience in both personal and corporate insolvency assignments he can help you and your business make the right decisions when those decisions are difficult to make. Derek’s great depth of experience also extends to Taxation and Business Advisory work and all core areas of accounting. Beyond this he is also responsible for the ICT of MMGA and our clients.

    Derek, a talented business advisor is also a member of the Dundee Round Table community contribution group. When taking a break from work he is most likely keeping fit on the football pitch, squash court or golf course.

  • Aileen Bollan
    Director of Operations

    Aileen is an invaluable member of the MMGA team and makes sure the business is running successfully. She is responsible for the management, finance and administration of the business and keeps the partners up to speed on the various key areas of the firm’s performance. A master of multi-tasking Aileen is instrumental to our marketing and advertising, event co-ordination, HR and all secretarial and administrative duties. Her astonishing diligence and organisation always keeps us on the right track.

    Aileen is another of MMGA’s football aficionados. She is a passionate supporter of Dundee United and an executive member of United Ladies of Tannadice. When she’s not cheering on her team she can’t say no to a good concert or a great book.

  • Gerry MacCrossan
    Associate

    Gerry is a hugely experienced Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor. His main area of expertise is in tax planning and making sure you make the most of any relief you can access.

  • Craig Robertson
    Associate

    Craig is a talented Chartered Accountant and specialises in audit and compliance. Working closely with Graeme Craig is essential in the administration of audit compliance and is a line of defence for your business helping you to avoid unnecessary compliance failures. Craig’s experience is drawn from working with variety of owner managed businesses through to preparing consolidated financial statements for the firm’s largest clients.

    A keen football fan, Craig is a veritable fountain of information when it comes to the latest on-pitch developments and passionately supports his team. Like a top-class goalkeeper when it comes to your business he is a safe pair of hands.

  • Vanessa Barrett
    Payroll Supervisor

    Vanessa has enjoyed fantastic career progression at MMGA as we continually invest in our people. Showing a natural ability for payroll and an in-depth knowledge of auto-enrolment she was an obvious choice when appointing her as Payroll Supervisor.

    When she isn’t helping businesses with new auto-enrolment responsibilities she will be found enjoying the wonderful Scottish countryside whilst walking her dog, watching a game of Saturday football or travelling the world and experiencing new places. As with the majority of the MMGA team she loves supporting the local community and acts as a volunteer for Poppy Scotland.

  • John Archbold
    Consultant

    John is a member of the Institute of Financial Accountants and the Association of International Accountants. As you may well have guessed from the name John became a key partner of MMG Archbold when his former practice, Archbold Accountancy joined forces with MMG in 2012. John is responsible for the development and expansion of the practice and has several years of practical experience in the oil and gas and pharmaceutical sectors.

    John is a multi-talented man who speaks fluent Italian and enjoyed a career as a schoolboy signing for Dundee United later becoming a director for Montrose Football Club. How he didn’t convince them to sign Paul we will never know.
