Peter Bodin will lead Grant Thornton International Ltd (GTIL), the global entity of the professional services network with 47,000 people at member firms in over 130 countries. Bodin, the former CEO of Grant Thornton Sweden, will assume the role on Jan. 1, 2018, for a five-year term, succeeding Ed Nusbaum, who will retire at the end of this year after eight years as CEO of GTIL.

“I have always believed sustainable business success is built on having the right people, leadership and culture,” Bodin says. “My role will be to create an environment that allows Grant Thornton people and firms to collaborate, not just with each other but with clients and other stakeholders, to grow into the world’s best professional services organization.”

Nusbaum adds, “I am delighted that the board has chosen a strong, innovative leader in Peter who will inspire the people of Grant Thornton, our clients and our communities throughout the world.  I have worked closely with him over the years and I am confident that after a smooth transition he will continue the journey to execute our Growing Together 2020 strategy and continue to build an exciting future for this great organization.”

Bodin was the CEO of Grant Thornton Sweden for 16 years. He received unanimous support from the board, including CEOs of Grant Thornton member firms from 14 countries and two independent directors.
