Press release by Grant Thornton

Press release by Grant Thornton - Grant Thornton today announced the addition of Nambiar Associates as a new member firm in Rwanda. With three partners and 30 additional staff, the firm will go to market under the name Nambiar Grant Thornton and provide audit, tax and outsourcing services.

Nambiar Grant Thornton joins existing Grant Thornton Africa member firms in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

Gernot Hebestreit, Global leader - clients & markets, said: "We are pleased that we now have a presence in one of the fastest growing economies in Africa which is seen as an increasingly attractive destination for foreign and Sub-Saharan investors.

Mr. Nambiar is highly respected in the professional circles in Rwanda and has an extensive client base in the country. Our Grant Thornton brand will grow our presence in Rwanda.
