Grant Thornton UK LLP named Accountancy firm of the year at The FDs' Excellence Awards 2016
Leading business and financial adviser Grant Thornton UK LLP has been recognised as the 'Accountancy Firm of the Year (Larger Clients)' at this year's FDs' Excellence Awards. This is the fourth time in the last seven years that Grant Thornton has won the accolade, beating all other major firms.
The awards recognise the UK's brightest FDs and financial services providers. Grant Thornton was voted as Accountancy Firm of the Year for its work with companies with an annual turnover in excess of £25m, achieving a nine out of ten satisfaction rating. The award is particularly special as it was determined by the results of an annual FDs' Satisfaction Survey completed by 1,856 finance decision-makers.
Commenting on the accolade Sue Almond, Head of Assurance at Grant Thornton UK LLP, said "We are delighted to have been named 'Accountancy Firm of the Year' for our work with larger clients. This award is especially important for us as it is voted for by individuals that we work with daily, and so truly recognise and value the quality of our approach. At Grant Thornton we focus on delivering a service of quality and excellence to create value for our clients.
"The financial landscape is changing and so are the needs of our clients, something we continue to recognise. We are committed to investing to build capabilities to meet our clients' evolving needs. That, combined with always working to bring the best combination of skills to create value for clients, is at the heart of our approach and we are thrilled that this has been recognised. This award, along with the improvement shown in the AQRT report released this week, is a great reflection of our commitment to continuous improvement. There is always more we can do and we’re already focused on how we can develop further over the next year."
Sacha Romanovitch, CEO at Grant Thornton UK LLP, added "I'd like to say a massive thank you to all the FDs who voted for us and to all our people who show such passion and commitment to delivering quality work and creating lasting value for clients. It is this dedication, and our continued determination to adapt and understand the landscape in which our clients operate, that allows us to truly support our clients in unlocking their potential for growth. We are passionate about ensuring our clients can thrive and contribute towards creating a vibrant economy. We hope that this attitude and approach will continue to see us receive such great recognition from our clients."
Grant Thornton was also recently named "Global Firm of the Year" at the British Accountancy Awards, an award also based on a survey of FDs.
