New financial services advisory partner for Grant Thornton

Grant Thornton adds another partner to its ranks, appointing a 20-year veteran to its Actuarial and Risk team

TOP TEN accountancy firm Grant Thornton has bolstered its Actuarial and Risk team with the appointment of veteran James Cruttenden, who joins as partner with immediate effect.

Cruttenden joins Grant Thornton’s Actuarial and Risk team, bringing with him 20 years’ experience specialising in life actuarial work.

A fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, Cruttenden is an expert in financial effectiveness and has experience helping clients improve their finance processes, reduce costs and ensure accurate results in line with regulatory and market deadlines.

Commenting on his appointment, Cruttenden said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the fantastic team here at Grant Thornton, who already have a market leading presence in providing actuarial and risk management advice to clients.

“I look forward to working with our dynamic client base in developing bespoke solutions to make their processes more effective and allow them to make informed management decisions.”

Tim Roff, head of actuarial and risk at Grant Thornton added “James’ vast skillset and experience in the life actuarial sector will be instrumental in strengthening our client offering and continuing our focus of providing a service of true quality and excellence.”

Cruttenden becomes the third partner to join Grant Thornton’s ranks in just over a month, following the promotions of private equity worker Keely Woodley and head of national facilities management team Usman Malik.

Earlier this month, the accountancy firm signed a £9m insolvency portfolio financing deal with AIM-listed Burford Capital.
