Grant Thornton has appointed a new Senior Manager to its Aberdeen team as its growth strategy in the city picks up pace.
The business and financial advisor has hired Catrina McRobb, who will support the expansion of its global mobility and employer solutions tax offering in the north east of Scotland.
Catrina has more than 15 years’ experience, primarily working with the Big 4, providing international assignment services to companies on all aspects of global mobility and expatriate tax issues.
Joining as a Senior Manager, Catrina will provide vital assistance and insight to a wide range of clients, including major oil and gas and food and drink businesses.
Her areas of practice will include aiding companies with cross border employee tax challenges and offering detailed assistance with domestic compliance issues, from gender pay gap reporting to payroll support.
Commenting on the appointment, Heather Smallwood, Tax Director at Grant Thornton UK in Aberdeen, said:
“It’s great to have someone with Catrina’s diverse range of experience on the team. We recently moved to the Silver Fin Building in the heart of Aberdeen to accommodate our growing presence in the region and this recent appointment is one of a number of new hires planned in the coming months and years.
“Aberdeen has witnessed challenging economic conditions, but there is a sense that at least optimism is returning to the market, driven by a genuine commitment across industry to rebuild and create a more innovative, dynamic economy focused on long-term sustainable growth.”
Catrina McRobb added:
“I’m thrilled to join the team here in Aberdeen. There’s a lot of buzz about Grant Thornton in the city. The company’s ambitious, positive growth plans really echo the sense that businesses in the region are rolling up their sleeves and focusing on rebuilding some of the ground that was lost in the downturn.
“My experience includes working with a range of major clients across international boundaries and I know that will be put to great use at Grant Thornton as the firm increasingly works with entrepreneurial, global brands.”
