Grant Thornton is pleased to announce that we have signed on as a partner with long standing industry body, Family Business Australia (FBA).
Approximately 70% of all businesses in Australia are family owned and operated, with over 50% of the Australian workforce employed by a family business. We are pleased to welcome this partnership with Family Business Australia (FBA), particularly during this unprecedented time and hope to assist in the long-term success of this valuable business sector.
Grant Thornton has a long-standing relationship with FBA with many of our Advisors holding FBA memberships and with our reputable history in supporting families in business, we hope to continue demonstrating this expertise throughout our partnership with FBA.
“Grant Thornton has long enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Family Business Australia through our individual connections as Accredited Family Business Advisors, to hosting and presenting at numerous FBA events over the past two decades, as well as participation in many and varied FBA Committees. Our clients are also deeply entrenched with FBA, with many recognised in FBA’s annual awards process.
“Supporting family business is important to Grant Thornton; we are true believers in the passion and commitment that families bring to business, and we’re delighted to formalise our relationship with FBA and its members," Robert Powell, National Head Family Office Services at Grant Thornton said.
“We are pleased to announce that Grant Thornton has signed on as Gold Preferred Partner with FBA. With a wealth of knowledge and experience, FBA members will now have access to their integrated full-service expertise across audit, mergers and acquisitions, valuations, technology advisory, cyber-security, corporate governance and human capital,” Greg Griffith, CEO of FBA said.
