Grant Thornton Poaches Someone From EY and Issues a Press Release, Part I

While public accounting firms in the U.S. are registering about zero on the competitive poaching Richter scale these days, the bigger firms in the U.K. continue to shake things up. Take Grant Thornton, for example. Dan Dickinson, GT’s newest partner in its tax practice, is an EY refugee.

From a press release seen by the website

Dickinson who is from Scarborough has extensive experience of working both with SMEs and large multi-nationals on cross-border activity.

He is the latest senior addition to Grant Thornton’s expanding tax team, which is led in the North by partner Rachel Engwell and has seen continued investment at all levels over the last 18 months.

Dan Dickinson

Double D worked at EY for about 11 years, and he was just promoted last September to associate partner in the international tax team in Leeds. So he’s all ready to make it rain as a partner at Grant Thornton.

While he has spent a majority of his career in the U.K., Dickinson served as a director for the U.K. Tax Desk in EY’s Singapore office from 2012 to 2015. He has also held the titles of senior manager and director of international tax services at EY U.K., according to his LinkedIn profile.
