Grant Thornton has appointed three new directors to its Australia firm, recruited from its Big Four rivals as part of its ‘aggressive’ growth strategy.
Cameron Bacon and John O’Donnell join from KPMG and Brett Curtis joins from Deloitte.
“We are looking for aggressive growth this financial year to build on our success to date. These senior appointments will strengthen our existing teams’ ability to win work in current and new markets,” said Grant Thornton chief executive Robert Quant.
Bacon has spent the last 19 years with KPMG and has 10 years experience within corporate finance, specifically private equity, and merger and acquisition.
Curtis joins from Deloitte’s corporate and international tax practice, where he has more than 15 years experience in cross-border international tax.
O’Donnell has worked at KPMG for 30 years and was previously the head of KPMG’s mid-market advisory practice.
