“Anika delivers her indirect tax expertise – which is currently in demand throughout the industry – with a fresh approach, and her technical capability is well regarded by clients,” said Greg Keith, CEO of Grant Thornton in Australia.

Jessica Farthing leads the Data Transformation and Analytics practice of Grant Thornton. She has over 13 years of experience in professional services, both in the US and Australia, performing big data analytics in the course of financial remediation and cash recovery engagements that provide her clients with valuable insights, validation of business outcomes, and cost savings.

The American national relocated to Grant Thornton’s Australian member firm from the US firm in 2018, and is based in Sydney. Earlier in her career she worked as a tax consultant for Ryan.

Keith said: “Jessica has responded to key market issues with tailored value propositions and new data-driven offerings that really established Grant Thornton as a challenger brand in the financial remediation space.”

Liam Te-Wierik has around a decade of professional services experience across external, internal and IT audit. His expertise covers a broad range of financial services from banking and insurance to unique AFS licensees, and has supported clients from start-ups and large private companies to listed public entities.

A partner in the Audit & Assurance division, based in Sydney, Te-Wierik is Head of the firm’s Audit Data Analytics practice, leading the data analytics portfolio across audit propositions. “Liam has been instrumental in helping Grant Thornton to better understand potential opportunities, create new services, and develop smarter and quicker ways to serve clients through client data analysis,” said Keith.

In its 2021 summer partner promotion round, Grant Thornton admitted Bhavesh Narsey, Hugh Perks and Helen Wilkes to its partnership.
