Grant Thornton Australia

Tony is the Managing Partner for Grant Thornton in Brisbane and National Managing Partner for Grant Thornton’s Private Advisory Service line across Australia.

As a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, and Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, he spends his day with clients and talking business and tax law, and in his spare time he sits on the School Council for St Aidans Anglican Girls School.

He first came across Dancing CEOs when one of his fellow Brisbane partners participated in 2015 and more recently Genevieve Dee (one of last years star performers) talked him into participating. A decision which he says was easy to make!

In his corporate life as a partner of Grant Thornton Corporate, he participates regularly in a range of Corporate Social Responsibility programs and most recently participated in the running CEO’s in 2017 – an event which took considerable training and commitment.

When asked what he was hoping to achieve by participating this year he said that he hopes to raise awareness of the good work that Queensland Women’s Legal Service does as well as help them raise much needed funds and also to have a lot of fun!.

Already since making the decision to participate, he has noticed that many of his clients an fellow partners have enthusiastically got on board and are looking to support him and join in the experience.
