Grant Thornton is expanding its capabilities in Charlotte, opening an International Business Center.

The center will be one of 30 within Grant Thornton and is designed to support the firm’s Carolinas offices in Charlotte, Columbia, Greensboro and Raleigh as well as Washington DC, Vienna VA and Baltimore.

Five of the centers are located in the U.S.

“The Charlotte IBC is a unique business center for coordinating relationships with Grant Thornton International’s member firm offices allowing us to consistently offer valuable and practical advice to our clients who operate globally,” said Mike McGuire, Carolinas Managing Partner for Grant Thornton. “All dealings with our international offices are communicated through this Mid-Atlantic IBC which will provide significant new resources and international capabilities for our growing client base in the Carolinas.”
