Grant Thornton strengthens leadership board

Grant Thornton has installed Simon Morris as new COO as part of a company restructure to strengthen its leadership board

Simon Morris,
Grant Thornton
managing partner of the recovery and reorganisation practice, has been made
chief operating officer responsible for the firm’s operational management and
business unit managing partners, in a restructure aimed at strengthening its
leadership board.

Michael Cleary, Grant Thornton chief executive, said the restructure would
‘add fuel to our resolve to create a £500m turnover business by 2010’ which
would be a stronger international alternative proposition in the market.

Also part of the restructure, Sacha Romanovitch, Grant Thornton managing
partner of the advisory services business unit, has been made responsible for
providing ‘inspired leadership on people issues and skills development’, while
former RSM Robson Rhodes partners David Barnes and Alan Lees have been appointed
to the firm’s partnership committee

Existing board members Steve Edmonds, David Maxwell, John Mew and Malcolm
Ward have have had their responsibilities expanded. Edmonds will oversee
programmes relating to partner and director issues and Maxwell will lead the
development of the firm’s marketing, brand development, sales performance,
routes to market and customer satisfaction and retention. Mew will take board
leadership of the technical communities and Ward will be responsible for
developing the firm’s detailed medium and longer-term strategic direction.
