Reflecting on his new challenge, Wyborn said, “Joining the excellent team at Grant Thornton, many of whom I know well, is an opportunity to focus on the core mid-market that I’m passionate about. Despite the disruption of the last year, Cambridgeshire’s business community has proven itself remarkably resilient, with activity in the mid-market in particular pushing on unabated as new businesses form and scale-ups continue to raise growth capital.”

Wyborn arrives following a 21-year stint with PwC. During his time at the Big Four accounting and advisory firm, Wyborn rose to the role of Senior Manager, and developed particular expertise working with mid-market listed businesses and private equity backed scale-ups. In his new role he joins the leadership team overseeing the firm’s Cambridgeshire audit practice with a remit focused on audit quality and client service.

The news is the latest senior addition to Grant Thornton’s expanding Cambridge office, following the recruitment of corporate finance Partner Mike Tillson in January.
