Grant Thornton US has appointed 38 new partners and principals and promoted 58 professionals to managing director, effective August 1. 

The 96 new leader promotions is a record for the accounting and consulting firm, surpassing last year’s mark of 87 people.

“All of these talented professionals are advancing our firm, and they consistently deliver on our promise to make business more personal and build trust into every result,” said Seth Siegel, CEO of Grant Thornton US. “The breadth of their experience is impressive, and just as important, they have demonstrated time and again a knack for going beyond expectations for the many organizations we serve. As our firm continues to grow, all of these leaders will be instrumental in helping Grant Thornton reach new heights.”

The firm's advisory business had the largest number of promotions (46%), followed by audit (30%), tax (20%), and internal services (4%).
