Chicago-based Grant Thornton (FY18 net revenue of $1.87 billion) has named David Platt as its MP for the firm’s East region while expanding the role of regional MP Nichole Jordan by adding the Midwest to a portfolio that previously consisted of Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas.
The roles complement an existing position held by Grant Thornton partner Tony Perazzo, who is the MP for the firm’s West region – a position he has held since 2019. He also serves as the OMP in the San Francisco Bay area.
The triumvirate of roles will allow Grant Thornton to more quickly respond to market opportunities and clients, while also supporting people and culture initiatives, the firm says.
Prior to his new role, Platt served as the Northeast region MP. Before that, he was the firm’s New England MP. He works with organizations on financial matters that include strategic planning, corporate board governance, profitability enhancements, and merger and acquisition services. He has served clients as an audit partner in a variety of industries.
Jordan became Grant Thornton’s MP for the Central region in December 2019. She has held a number of senior leadership roles since joining the firm in 2003. She most recently served as the national MP of markets, clients and industry, overseeing more than 1,000 client relationships, industry sectors, regions, sales, market intelligence and analytics.
Perazzo serves public and private audit clients, primarily in the technology and manufacturing industries, with a specialty in the food and beverage sector. He has also worked extensively with large multi-national companies, handling key financial matters. These include initial public offerings and due diligence for mergers and acquisitions. Prior to his current role, he was the firm’s California market leader.
