Ramón Galcerán elected new Chairman (CEO) of Grant Thornton Spain

Ramón Galcerán will take up this role on 1 September 2020, following on from Alejandro Martínez Borrell. He is a member of the Firm's Board of Directors and Lead Partner of Financial Advisory services. He will continue to strengthen the Firm's growth, proximity, innovation and transformation in the Spanish market.

His appointment is endorsed by all members of the Board, having determinedly helped drive Grant Thornton's growth strategy over the last few years. In fact, his leadership drove him to become a member of the Board of Directors and Management Committee and he has headed up Financial Advisory services since 2008. Galcerán joined Grant Thornton in 2003 and during this time he has witnessed the company's dramatic growth within Spain's professional services market. This position is reflected by sustained double-digit annual growth over the past six years and a team that has almost doubled in this period, currently comprising 800 professionals working in the current four key lines of business; year on year they have all improved their business position, capabilities and total number of clients.

“It is a great pride and responsibility to start leading the Firm at this crucial time for our clients and Spanish businesses, when they are immersed in an unprecedented task of recovery and reactivation. We are recognised for our proximity, specialisation and quality of service, and now more than ever we are going to continue on this path, setting the course in our segment and building a benchmark firm in Spain," explains Ramon Galcerán, new chairman of Grant Thornton.
