Chicago-based Grant Thornton LLP (FY13 net revenue of $1.3 billion) admitted Kathleen McLaughlin to managing director and employee benefit plan industry leader for the Atlantic Coast, based in Philadelphia.
“Kathleen’s proven leadership and vast experience will be integral in meeting the needs of our dynamic clients,” says Jamie Fowler, Grant Thornton’s Atlantic Coast MP. “She will play a key role in leading the growth and driving the strategy of the benefit plan practice in the Philadelphia area and throughout the region.”
McLaughlin is the Philadelphia champion for the firm’s audit methodology and technology. She develops and instructs related firm training courses, delivered both nationally and locally, and is a former member of the firm’s internal control over financial reporting task force initiative.
