Anderson will be responsible for directing and growing Grant Thornton’s regional team of almost 650 people across the three offices.

She joined the firm in 2021 as an Audit Partner and has more than 20 years of experience working with international and private equity-backed companies across multiple sectors.

James Brown and Tim Taylor, who previously fulfilled the leadership role, are moving to focus on other responsibilities within the firm’s UK regional business.

Anderson says: “It’s a proud moment for me and a career milestone that reflects how much I have enjoyed becoming part of Grant Thornton’s dynamic but collaborative culture. Over the past two years I’ve had the opportunity to work with a variety of inspiring businesses and I’m excited about where we go next as a team.

“The capability, insight and experience within our individual practice areas is making a positive impact to companies and organisations and there’s a great deal of professional satisfaction in seeing our team find solutions, unpack challenging issues and enabling a vision to be realised.

“Like many others, I see great potential across the regional business community and feel we are well placed to help accelerate progress.”
