Articles - Scott Barnes appointed for second term as Grant Thornton CEO


 Scott Barnes has been reappointed as Chief Executive of Grant Thornton UK LLP and will drive the firm's strategic focus on dynamic businesses during his second term.

 Scott has laid out a business plan and growth path for the firm through to 2015, with an ambitious revenue target of £500 million to be achieved organically and through acquisition of specialist businesses which strengthen Grant Thornton's service offering to its core target market.

 Earlier this week, Grant Thornton unveiled its new global brand promise and advertising campaign with the new strapline, 'An instinct for growth'.

 Scott says: "I am delighted that through my reappointment, the Grant Thornton Partners have given their full support to the plan and targets I have laid out for the next three years. I look forward to carrying it through to completion during my second term.

 "Dynamic organisations are Grant Thornton's core focus and the richest seam is in the large private and smaller listed market, where we are already strong. Our new brand promise, which underpins our strategy and ambition, is touching our whole business - our services, the way we deliver them, the people we hire and how we develop them.

 "Our goal is to provide our clients with more meaningful and forward-looking advice to help them make better business decisions and achieve their objectives. Our clients rely on our technical expertise but they particularly value our insight, intuition, experience and judgement, and that we offer them a point of view", Scott concludes.
 Scott was appointed CEO in 2008. He led the restructure of the firm during the downturn and has delivered a clear strategy resulting in a strong financial performance over the last three years.
