Grant Thornton Cayman welcomes partner as founder retires

Grant Thornton Cayman, an accountancy and audit firm that provides captive consulting in the Cayman Islands, has appointed Dara Keogh as a co-managing partner, as founding partner Terry Carson steps down for retirement.

Carson, along with Ian Johnson, became partners of Morris Brankin in 2002, which was rebranded as Grant Thornton in 2003. In 2010 they purchased the business from its former owners.

In this time, Carson and Johnson have grown the business to more than four times what is was 15 years ago.

Carson said: “Grant Thornton Cayman has a solid foundation and a strong team. Together, we have created a firm that is well-positioned to seize the opportunities of the future. It has been an incredible experience working with these dedicated and warm people over the years”, he said.

Incoming partner Keogh has 15 years of experience in Cayman’s financial services industry, having previously served as chief financial officer for Alesia Re.

Keogh added: “The Grant Thornton proposition here was very appealing to me. There is a wonderful opportunity for growth, the team here is fantastic, globally Grant Thornton has a superb platform that sets us apart from all other accountancy and audit firms and we have a strong book of business already. I see no reason why we will not be able to double our business here in the next years”.
