Accounting Firm Grant Thornton has recruited Bob Joyce as advisory consultant, following his recruitment from Jaguar Land Rover.

Joyce has over thirty years’ experience in the automotive sector, including knowledge of restructuring, commercial performance, global expansion and organisational development.

He has joined the firm’s Global Automotive team, and will work closely with the firm’s UK business consulting team to develop programs to support the automotive industry’s rapid changing requirements.

Niel Barrell, Grant Thornton global automotive lead and UK head of industry and manufacturing, said being able to identify key opportunities and areas which can have the maximum impact for clients was paramount.

Joyce’s skill set would help ensure the team was able to better support the automotive industry across the whole value chain, Barrell added.
