Grant Thornton is proud to welcome four new Partners from 1 July across the Private Business Tax & Advisory, Audit & Assurance, and Financial Advisory service lines. This announcement comes after congratulating an additional 6 Partners and 1 Principal over the last 12 months.

Striving to deliver the best client experience through expertise, principled execution, and personalised service is what these newly appointed Partners already – and will continue to do – as they work with their clients and teams. These promotions reflect the continuing demand for mid-tier services and give the firm an opportunity to build a stronger presence in the market.

Their fresh perspectives and innovative ideas are invaluable as we continue to grow and evolve. Their progression into the Partnership demonstrates the career growth and opportunities we have internally at the firm. 

“As a firm, we strive to prioritise our CARE values in everything we do and remain committed to supporting these newly appointed leaders to continue the strong culture of care for our clients, people, and communities at Grant Thornton.
