Roy Welsby (Partner – Quality and Professional Standards)

During my 36 years with the firm (I joined Grant Thornton in 1979 as a trainee in our Bristol office), I have enjoyed various roles in a number of different offices, including Grant Thornton International Ltd where I headed up the risk management and training for Advisory Services globally. I have also had a slightly different role as a trainer at our training centre in Bradenham.

I currently support our national leadership board member for Quality and Professional Standards as well as manage both the national Quality and Professional Standards and client take-on teams. 

I am the firm's Money Laundering Reporting Officer and hold the oversight function for the firm's regulation and compliance department. Both of these roles are regulated by the FCA. I still retain my involvement with the international network through membership of the global Enterprise Risks Committee.
