Grant Thornton leadership team expands with two new senior hires

Global accountancy, tax and advisory firm Grant Thornton has announced the appointment of two new Directors, expanding the firm’s leadership team.

Joseph Ferruzzi joins the organisation as Director and Co-Head of the firm’s US Tax Practice.

Grant Thornton Cayman Islands’ Tax practice was set up mid-2019 in response to growing demand, and further to its success, Joseph joins Chris Willemse to lead the service line and has over 18 years of experience working for some of the biggest names in the industry and returns to Grand Cayman after spending the past ten years back in his native home of New York.

Sherri Fleming joins the firm as a Director in the 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.

Greg O’Driscoll, Partner and Head of Asset Management at Grant Thornton Cayman Islands said ‘we are delighted to welcome two new industry experts to our team. We have seen significant growth in our Funds practice over the past three years- which is now complemented by our US Tax services offering- and the addition of Joe and Sherri further enables us to deliver our ambitious growth strategy. We are thrilled to welcome them both and their wealth of experience to Grant Thornton.’
