Grant Thornton Continues Expansion of Financial Services Advisory Practice

Jose Molina has joined Chicago-based Grant Thornton LLP (FY13 net revenue of $1.3 billion) as a principal and leader of its financial services advisory enterprise risk management practice.

“Jose’s proven leadership and experience directing interdisciplinary teams aimed at assessing, enhancing and implementing financial and operational risk management processes will be invaluable assets to our clients,” says Warren Stippich, Grant Thornton’s national governance, risk and compliance solution leader and the leader of the Chicago office’s business advisory services group.

“As we demonstrated last month with the addition of Ilieva Ageenko to lead our model risk management practice, Jose’s arrival highlights the firm’s continued commitment to building deep financial services advisory capabilities,” says Nigel Smith, Grant Thornton’s U.S. financial services advisory leader.

Most recently, Molina was a managing director within the financial services industry practice at Accenture PLC. Molina has extensive experience in risk analytics and modeling, regulatory compliance operating models, risk capital management and stress testing and operational risk management optimization techniques.
