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

Aug. 10 was a big day for the PR team at Grant Thornton in the Cayman Islands because they actually had some news to write about. They hadn’t sent out a news release since June 12. But after GT nabbed a director from PwC in the Caymans, the firm actually gave its PR team something to do:

Sherri Fleming joins the firm as a Director in our audit practice, specialising in the audit of alternative investment Funds. Sherri brings with her nearly 20 years of experience in the audit industry, the last 14 of which have been in the Cayman Islands. Her role as a Director sees her leading audit engagements, building and developing client relationships, coaching and mentoring her teams, and taking part in industry related webinars focusing on the evolving landscape of asset management in the Cayman Islands.

We haven’t been able to dig up much other information about Fleming, other than what’s in her profile on PwC Cayman Islands’ website, which is still active. Do they even know she left? Here P. Dubs, we’ll give you some proof that she’s on the purple team now:According to her PwC profile, Fleming is a member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada, a CPA in the state of Illinois, and is a member of the Cayman Islands Institute of Professional Accountants.

We’ll keep an eye out for GT Caymans’ next news release, which at this rate will be sent out around Oct. 10ish.
