Carlos Ferreira is the new national MP of private equity services for Chicago-based IPA 100 firm Grant Thornton. Ferreira will assume the role effective August 1, taking over for the retiring Doug Gawrych.
In his new role, Ferreira will lead the strategic direction for a range of private equity services, including areas such as growth, transformation, operations, resilience, compliance and diligence. He will also serve on the firm’s national leadership team, and will retain his role as the global co-leader for transaction advisory services at Grant Thornton International Ltd.
As a transaction advisory partner, Ferreira previously led the advisory services practice for Grant Thornton’s metro New York and New England market territory, supporting transaction strategies for private equity firms and their portfolio companies. His almost 25 years of experience includes work in buy- and sell-side due diligence, integration and exits for private equity investors and cross-border transactions in Europe, South America, Africa, North America and Asia.
“Carlos is an outstanding leader who will step into a critical role during a time of historic disruption and uncertainty,” says Grant Thornton CEO Brad Preber. “He will ensure we are consistently providing quality, value and innovative solutions to help our private equity clients.”
