New Birmingham practice leader for Grant Thornton

David Hillan succeeds Dave Munton in leading Grant Thornton's Birmingham office

DAVID HILLAN has been appointed as practice leader in Birmingham for Grant Thornton.

Hillan takes over from Dave Munton who held the role for six years and who will now take on the position of expanded regional managing partner covering Birmingham, Sheffield, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool and Newcastle.

Having joined the firm four years ago, Hillan heads Birmingham’s corporate and international tax practice.

Over this period, the corporate and employment tax business has grown leading to revenues doubling and a team of over 30 tax specialists.

During Munton’s time in the position, the office doubled to more than 300 people with an annual fee income of around £25m.

Hillan said: “Dave has led the Birmingham office very successfully over the last six years, establishing Grant Thornton as the go-to advisory firm for growing businesses in the West Midlands. The development and growth of talent during this time has also been fantastic, with us now having one of the strongest and best regarded teams in the Midlands.”

Munton added: “Since David joined us, he has introduced new clients to the firm and attracted some highly skilled people to the already strong team, particularly in the area of international tax. The large majority of our clients are now actively seeking growth overseas and this is where our extensive global network comes into its own.”

With regard to the firm’s talent development plans, he said: “I know that as David leads the Birmingham office into the future he will maintain this ethos, developing both people and services for the benefit of our clients’ businesses. I wish him every success.”
