Grant Thornton is moving into a recently opened landmark development in Aberdeen – the Silver Fin building.
The business and financial advisory firm is relocating to the multi-million pound city centre development as part of a long-term growth strategy in the North East of Scotland.
Over the last year, a number of key hires have been made in the business, enabling it to provide a full range of audit, tax and advisory services. The team has signed up a wide range of new clients from owner managed and private equity backed companies to major global corporates and contracts in excess of £4m have been secured over the last couple of months.
Barry Fraser, Director of Grant Thornton in Aberdeen, commented:
“When Grant Thornton opened its first office in Aberdeen eighteen months ago, we saw a gap in the market and had a clear view of how to differentiate our service to clients. There has been strong market interest in a fresh approach with high quality and consistent service, delivered locally by a senior team closely supported by Grant Thornton’s international network in over 130 countries.
“Our vision is to help businesses unlock growth and this is an objective shared by many others who are keen to overcome the challenges we’ve seen recently to build strong businesses and a vibrant economy.
“Our move to the Silver Fin building enables us to continue our expansion and help more businesses deliver their own growth in the months and years ahead.”
Property management firm, Ryden, assisted with Grant Thornton’s move to the Silver Fin building. Partner and Head of Agency in Aberdeen, Arron Finnie, added:
“We’re delighted to welcome Grant Thornton to this stunning new development right in the heart of the city centre. The company’s appetite to expand and its dynamism really reflects the resilience and returning confidence, which is helping to restore some of the ground lost in the recent downturn.
“The Silver Fin building is arguably one of the best buildings in town, due to its high specifications and its excellent location. At more than 132,000 square feet, it’s helping to play a part in the returning optimism within the city.”
