Currie & Brown has posted a pre-tax profit of £2.3m for the year ended 30 September 2007, after an 11% jump in turnover to £63.3m.

In 2006 it made an annualised pre-tax profit of £300,000.

Euan McEwan, chief executive, said the company had re-found its direction by concentrating on its core cost and technical consultancy markets, including PFI. He said: “We’re not casting our net too wide.”

Its four main areas are public, private, industrial and asset management.

He plans to break through the £100m turnover barrier within five years thanks to overseas work, which he hopes will grow from a third to half of its business.

“We are advising the Mexican and Greek governments on PFI. Although it has had its detractors in the UK, it has generally been a huge success.”
