The company’s team in the city will relocate to St Vincent Plaza, a Category A office space in the heart of the city’s international financial services district.
The approximately 10,000 square foot space will be the fourth office that Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie has had on St Vincent Street in its 165 year history. The company also has offices in Edinburgh, Inverness, Dunfermline and Dunblane, and milestones since its inception include the merger with BMK Wilson in 2017.
Managing partner Fraser Gillies said he believed the move would provide an “ideal stepping stone” for the new hybrid working model adopted by the company.

He said: “In the coming weeks our Glasgow team will be moving into their new office. It’s a truly modern space that is a perfect fit for our forward-looking practice. The new office space will meet the needs of our employees and clients, and the open plan layout will truly enhance our collaborative work between our multidisciplinary teams.
“We want to give the team a space that allows them to work collaboratively and a place that they can use as a hub to use in a flexible way that works for them.”
Mr Gillies – who at the end of last year underlined the company’s strategy of investing in people and premises in order to continue to grow – also said: “Despite the fact that we continue to do well perform while on lockdown, we now appreciate the true value of meeting and having in-person discussions, so while we fully intend to keep elements of working from home, we also believe that having an office high quality, as a place to meet and collaborate with colleagues and clients, is essential.
“We are seeing promising signs of growth as the post-Covid economic recovery accelerates, so now is the perfect time to take that next step. St Vincent Street has been our home in Glasgow for a very long time now, and although it will only be a short trip across the road it will have a big impact on how our business operates in the future.
