Liz Wallace has joined Chicago-based Grant Thornton LLP (FY13 net revenue of $1.3 billion) as a managing director in the firm’s strategic federal tax services practice, based in Metropark, NJ.

Wallace joins Grant Thornton from KPMG LLP, where she was a senior manager and leader of the Metro New York commercial tax credits practice. While there, she developed new credit service offerings and was responsible for increased practice revenue, achievement of utilization goals and development of a three-year growth plan. She also directed and conducted new business development activities and spearheaded new initiatives and service offerings.

“Liz’s deep knowledge of research and development tax credits, energy and sustainability tax incentives and new incentives that arise through legislation, judicial and other guidance will be integral in meeting the needs of our growth-oriented clients throughout the state,” says Frank Kurre, Grant Thornton’s Metro New York and New England MP. “Her arrival reinforces our continued commitment to the growth of our specialty tax areas in the Metro New York market.”
