Press release:

Grant Thornton LLP welcomes Ouellette & Associates

Grand Falls, NB, February 1, 2016

The Grand Falls accounting firm of Ouellette & Associates and Grant Thornton LLP have joined forces—offering a greater depth and breadth of service. Denis Ouellette has joined Grant Thornton as a partner, along with a team of five. The group will operate from its current premises on McCormick Street in Grand Falls under the Grant Thornton name.

For years, Ouellette & Associates serviced a large base of private business and individual clients throughout Victoria County and beyond. Its reputation for delivering personalized financial guidance had distinguished it in the local business community.

“We are thrilled to be joining an exciting and growing firm like Grant Thornton whose values and culture mirror our own,” Ouellette comments. “Leveraging Grant Thornton’s resources will tremendously benefit both our staff and our clients, giving them access to services we have not been able to provide in the past. We are all very much looking forward working with the Grant Thornton team, both locally and across the country.”

Denis Ouellette and his team’s commitment to exceptional service remains unchanged. The only difference is that Grant Thornton is better positioned to provide clients with more extensive tax services and enhanced corporate finance and valuation offerings.

“We’re delighted to welcome Denis Ouellette and his team into the firm. Their collective experience and reputations are a great fit for Grant Thornton in markets where demand for our services is strong,” says Kevin Ladner, Regional Managing Partner at Grant Thornton.
