Grant Thornton loses partner to PwC

Grant Thornton has lost a partner and its head of tax to big four and rival accountancy firm PwC

Grant Thornton
has lost one of its longest serving accountants, Mike McCusker, a partner and
its head of tax, to big four firm and rival
PricewaterhouseCoopers
(PwC).

A Grant Thornton spokeswoman confirmed McCusker resigned in March, but denied
to The Scotsman McCusker’s departure in March had left a vacuum, saying
Andrew Addie was now heading up its tax service together with partner George
McCraken.

According to an industry source, McCusker joined PwC to lead its push into
the SME market. ‘He is a huge loss to Grant Thornton as he was one of its few
long-servers,’ he said.

’He has all the key contacts with the major law practices in Scotland through
which the firm obtained a large part of its business.’
