Grant Thornton UK appoints five new Partners

23 April 2019

Sergio Cardoso, Matt Maltz, Jessica Patel, Marc Roberts and Nick Warner have been appointed as partners at Grant Thornton. With the company undergoing a year of transition under new leadership, the new members will help consolidate the firm’s offering as it looks to reach new levels of growth in 2019.

2019 sees Grant Thornton’s UK wing undergoing a process of transformation. As the group looks to ensure its teams “provide the right level of support for profitable growth” and create an environment that “makes it easier for our people to do great work”, the firm has announced a succession of senior appointments across its regional divisions.

In February, this saw Chris Petts and James Bulloss named Partner and Director in the North East and Yorkshire respectively. Now, the UK’s sixth-largest auditing and consulting firm has confirmed the installation of a further five Partners across its UK team.

Sergio Cardoso is a long-standing Grant Thornton employee, having joined from Daniel Auerbach & Company – where he was an Accountant – in 2005. Cardoso rose steadily through the ranks since then, taking up his most recent role as Audit and Assurance Director in 2015. In that role, he focused on dynamic, fast-growing and entrepreneurial private companies, as well as multinational and AIM-listed groups. He now takes up the position of Partner in Grant Thornton’s audit practice.
