Grant Thornton adds two to pensions team

Grant Thornton appoint Ramona Jones and Zoe O'Donnell

GRANT THORNTON has bolstered its pensions advisory team with the appointment of Ramona Jones and Zoe O’Donnell, who both join the firm with immediate effect.

Jones joins Grant Thornton having started her career in operational risk consulting, where she worked within the European corporate insurance sector to assess and mitigate business risks. She then moved on to transaction services, where she specialised in commercial due diligence in the context of private equity and corporate acquisitions.

Before joining Grant Thornton, Jones founded and ran Ocean Knowledge Services, a consultancy specialising in strategic research and analysis within the finance and insurance sectors. She will be based in the firm’s Finsbury Square office in London.

O’Donnell previously worked as an actuary for various pension consultancies including AON Hewitt and Thomson Dickson Consulting, specialising in trustee and corporate scheme funding advice, de-risking projects, pension scheme accounting disclosures and PPF levy mitigation. She will be based between Grant Thornton’s offices in Bothwell Street in Glasgow and Finsbury Square in London.

Grant Thornton head of pensions advisory Darren Mason said: “Ramona and Zoe join our growing team at an exciting time for us, as our pension advisory unit has expanded impressively over the past 12 months. Our expertise in pensions is now very wide-ranging, with Ramona and Zoe’s excellent technical knowledge and experience adding additional depth to the team.”
