David Maxwell (Board member – responsible for Markets and Clients)


In my role on the National Leadership Board at Grant Thornton, I’m responsible for client care, brand, business development and marketing. I am also chair of our London offices, lead our International Business Centre and am a member of our Global Regulatory team.

Accountancy has taken me to the UK, mainland Europe and New York in various leadership and supervisory posts, including managing partner at RSM Robson Rhodes, which we successfully merged with Grant Thornton in 2007 and as RSM's European director based in Brussels.

One of my main interests is developing the profession on a worldwide basis. Outside Grant Thornton, I chair a committee of the 24 largest global audit networks – the Forum of Firms’ Transnational Audit Committee – which focuses on raising the standard of auditing and financial reporting globally. I am also a member of both the Finance and Risk Committee of Business in the Community and the IFAC Planning and Finance Committee.
