John Bowler (Director)

I am an experienced audit engagement lead based in our Leicester office., with over 30 years' experience of advising a range of businesses from publicly listed to substantial private, to family and owner managed SMEs. I have taken director status for my final two years, pre-retirement, having been a partner for 25 years.

During my time at Grant Thornton I have also been managing partner in Milton Keynes, for three years, and Leicester for five years. I chair the firm's Partner and Director Selection Panel, having been a member for 20 years and Chair for over 10 years. I also served three full terms, of three years each, as an elected member of the firm's Partnership Oversight Board, which performs functions parallel to non-executive directors.

Outside of work I am a Board member and trustee of Leicestershire Cares, a local charity that brings businesses and the community together through local volunteering. I also follow Leicester Tigers and Leicester City.
