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.
