AN experienced specialist from the banking world has joined the Chelmsford team of financial and business advisers Grant Thornton in a consultancy role to help further progress the firm’s strategy for growth.

Peter Glynn joins Grant Thornton following more than 40 years with Barclays Corporate, latterly as a relationship director, working with many large corporate clients across the Eastern region.

He formally retired from Barclays in the summer before taking on the parttime position with Grant Thornton. In his new role, Mr Glynn will work closely with the Essex team and
its client base, helping to further strengthen the firm’s service offering and expand the business.

Speaking about his new challenge, Mr Glynn said: “I hope by tapping into four decades of banking experience, I will be able to add a fresh and valuable dimension to the Grant Thornton team, build on existing client relationships as well as promote new ones, and help to propel the business further along its growth path.”
