Chicago-based IPA 100 firm Grant Thornton LLP (FY19 net revenue of $1.95 billion) has named Janet Malzone as its incoming national MP of audit services. She will succeed Jeff Burgess in the role upon his retirement on July 31, 2021.
An 18-year veteran of Grant Thornton, Malzone currently serves as the audit practice leader for the Midwest region and has served on the firm’s partnership board. Previously, she served as the Chicago audit practice leader and as a director of the firm’s International Business Center.
“Janet will not only help our clients navigate a complex and challenging business environment, she will also drive our audit capabilities into the future by harnessing technology and innovation,” says CEO Brad Preber. “She is the ideal leader to build on Jeff’s track record of creating a dynamic audit practice that keeps quality at the core of its operations and client services.”
