Grant Thornton welcomes new National Head of Corporate Finance

Grant Thornton Australia is excited to announce the appointment of Holly Stiles, Partner – Financial Advisory as the new National Head of Corporate Finance.

Holly commences in the role with over 20 years of experience in corporate finance and specialises in M&A and capital markets. Holly has a broad range of industry expertise including the technology, health care, food & beverage, professional services, and energy & resources sectors, and works across the Sydney and Brisbane markets.

“I am passionate about helping my clients with life changing transactions. It is very rewarding to support business owners through what typically can be a demanding process and I aim to deliver the best possible outcome in a collaborative way. It is a privilege to take on the leadership of Grant Thornton’s national corporate finance team,” said Holly Stiles.

Holly Stiles takes over this position from Paul Gooley, Partner – Financial Advisory, who previously held the role for the last 10 years. As the lead advisor of many successful assignments throughout his career so far, Paul is taking a step back from this national function, enthusiastic to see fresh ideas from his successor and to focus on management of the Sydney Financial Advisory team.

“I’m excited to see Holly take on this role to elevate the service line to a new level. She has proven to show the highest regard when it comes to servicing her clients and guiding them through extensive transactions for their businesses. She is clearly passionate about working in this space and her leadership is positively welcomed into the Financial Advisory practice on a national level,” said Paul Gooley.

Holly is also a Director of Kids Giving Back, a Not-for-Profit organisation providing volunteering opportunities for children. She previously worked for Grant Thornton UK before joining the Australian practice 19 years ago and is currently based in its Sydney Office.
