GRANT THORNTON'S UK insurance chairman is leaving the role after just four months, Accountancy Age can reveal.
Craig Scarr, who joined the firm's financial services group senior leadership team in April, had previously spent 28 years with Mazars. He will leave on 31 July.
Grant Thornton's global head of insurance Peter Allen had said of Scarr's appointment that his in-depth expertise and practical experience would add "significant weight" to its insurance offering.
Details of whether he will be replaced at the firm are unknown.
A Grant Thornton spokeswoman said the firm would not comment on individual circumstances.
