Grant Thornton strengthens its National Assurance offering with new partner promotion

Leading business and financial adviser Grant Thornton UK LLP has bolstered its National Assurance offering with the promotion of Jake Green to Partner.

Jake has worked in the technical practice of Grant Thornton since 2004. He is a specialist in consulting and financial reporting and regularly delivers training in this area to the firm's people and its clients. Jake has a strong understanding of both UK GAAP and IFRS and has extensive experience in producing comment letters on exposure drafts. He has been actively involved in developing and defining the strategic direction of the team and transforming the learning experience for the firm's Assurance practice.

Commenting on his appointment Jake said "The financial landscape is ever changing. The impact new policy changes can have, not just on companies' compliance procedures but on their commercial and strategic decision making, is wider than you may expect. Supporting our clients through these changes such as the newly introduced accounting standard FRS 102, and ensuring they have an effective plan in place is vital to ensuring they continue to grow and contribute towards a vibrant economy."

Sue Almond, Head of Assurance at Grant Thornton UK LLP added "This promotion recognises Jake's continued dedication to improving and shaping the firm's National Assurance practice. The move will further strengthen our client service, and his expertise and passion will help ensure the teams continued success."
