Paul Houghton (Partner)

Based in Sheffield, I specialise in listed and private company audit work, notably in manufacturing, engineering, and software & IT services. I work across the Leicester and Nottingham offices also.

I joined Grant Thornton in 2007 through the merger with RSM Robson Rhodes, where I was the partner responsible for overseeing quality, risk and compliance matters for the firm's audit and business assurance practice.

In addition to my background in audit, I’ve gained substantial experience of advising clients who are dealing with business change on a local or international basis, in particular working with senior management to maintain stability through acquisitions, disposals, periods of rapid growth and financial restructuring. 

Finally, I’m a board member of Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership – I chair the Growth Hub Board, which is responsible for planning next-generation business support to be delivered across the city region.
