Grant Thornton strengthens its investment in its restructuring, debt and pensions advisory offering with seven new partner and director appointments

SEVEN new partner and director appointments have bolstered Grant Thornton.

The appointments in its restructuring, debt and pensions advisory divisions will provide support to clients in uncertain times.

Shaun O’Callaghan, head of debt advisory and restructuring, Grant Thornton UK, said: “Uncertainty in the market is creating opportunities for some companies to grow, whilst some are facing difficult trading conditions. We are investing to support our corporate, banking and investor clients.”

The four new partners include two external hires – Senthil Alagar, who has joined from Alvarez and Marsal in London and Sarah O’Toole who joins the firm’s Manchester office from Alix Partners. Matt Richards joins the firm’s London team as a director from KPMG.

Helen Dale and Amaechi Nsofor are both internal promotions to partner. Chris McLean has been promoted to director and now leads the firm’s debt advisory team in London. Grant Thornton’s regional debt advisory team is led by Philip Stephenson, a director based in the firm’s Manchester office. Jamie MacKenzie has been made a director in the firm’s pensions advisory team.

This investment follows two other external partner hires of Eddie Williams from PwC in Birmingham and Martin Barron from Deloitte in Leeds that have been made over the past 18 months.

Grant Thornton UK is led by more than 185 partners and provides services to over 40,000 privately held businesses, public interest entities and individuals. It is ranked 5th in the 2016 Top 50+50 Survey, supported by Sage.
