Grant Thornton has installed a new national leader for its not-for-profit industry vertical: Bhavesh Narsey. 

Bhavesh Narsey has been with Grant Thornton since 2012, when he joined the accounting and consulting firm from BDO, which he served for over a decade in Australia, the UK and US. Now, a month after being promoted into the firm’s partnership, Narsey has now been handed the lead for the not-for-profit group, taking the reins from Simon Hancox. 

Brisbane-based partner Hancox held the role for nine years, helping the firm “build an excellent reputation in the sector, a solid client base and is highly regarded team,” according to Grant Thornton’s national managing partner of industry Iain Kemp.

Narsey brings more than 12 years of experience in public practice to the role, and is part of the firm’s national and Sydney not-for-profit, aged care and education sector teams. He also is on the board of the Grant Thornton Foundation and is the deputy chair of the Sydney Social Responsibility Committee.

“We look forward to Bhavesh taking his energy, enthusiasm and skill to the role in a way that will help us to continue to build our reputation in this space. Bhavesh has already brought some really great ideas to the table, and I think our not-for-profit clients will appreciate his approach,” said Kemp.

Meanwhile, Hancox will work alongside Narsey as member of the not-for-profit industry group and will continue in his role as Chair of Grant Thornton’s Brisbane office.
