Grant Thornton Nigeria has restated commitment to challenge conventions and deliver game-changing solutions to clients and stakeholders by sustaining its positioning as a strategic growth market (SGM) within the Grant Thornton global network.
Dr Ngozi Ogwo, the Managing Partner, Grant Thornton Nigeria, made the disclosure in a statement signed by the company’s Senior Manager, Public Relations and Communications, Mrs Merrilyn Okeleke.
Grant Thornton Nigeria, member firm of Grant Thornton international, is a leading professional financial services institutions with speciality in assurance, audit, taxation, business risk and a host of other services.
Ogwo said that the company’s plan to deliver more results would be further achieved with the admission of Mr Kingsley Opara and Mr Lateef Emiola as new partners in audit and advisory service lines respectively.
She noted that the current fast-evolving business environment needed an equally agile force to measure up and succeed in the ecosystem.
“Hence the rapid response and the authentic showcase of the firm’s flexibility to changing needs with this admission of two more partners.
“We are ambitious, for clients and ourselves. We are not content delivering basic satisfaction but hinge our results on quality standards that enable our people and clients to go beyond limitations and achieve their ambitions,” she said.
Ogwo said Opara, who was appointed partner in the audit service line, is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria with over 15 years of work experience in the financial services industry.
“He joined Grant Thornton Nigeria in 2008 and manages a diverse portfolio of clients in non-governmental/not-for-profit organisations.
“He also has experience in businesses that cut across various sectors, and industries such as information technology, media and telecommunication, oil and gas, marketing and communication, transportation, FMCG organisations, and real estate,” she said.
Ogwo added that Emiola, a forensic accountant and chartered banker with over 20 years, had earned for himself the ‘specialist’ status for identifying risks in business.
She said he had played significant roles in helping clients attain success by offering his expertise in certified processes (treasury, accounts receivable, accounts payable, inventory, fixed assets, etc.) and controls that surround such processes.
“Emiola has been with the firm for 13 years and currently works with both local and multinational clients delivering quality advisory services in accounting, budgeting, payroll, and payroll tax structures, corporate governance, risk-based internal audit, and fraud risk management investigations, and other services.
“Grant Thornton Nigeria is confident that their collective expertise and experience in the corporate world will be a great asset to clients as they join the existing partners in providing best-in-class solutions to business challenges,” she said.
