In an interview with the Italian newspaper, Cittadino, Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, shared the fundamental values and principles that have been guiding the firm for the past 70 years:

  • Talent development: The CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton highlighted the importance of attracting the best resources and developing their potential. Emilio explained that the firm starts the recruiting process early in the universities by offering students an opportunity to practice their expertise and grow in their home town.
  • Proximity: From a network of some 100 offices and points of service, the firm is able to efficiently guide its clients wherever they are. The concept of proximity is part of the firm’s DNA, Emilio explained.
  • Social commitment: The President believes that the firm must be socially committed. “We need to be community leaders,” he states. This year, for example, in order to give back to the community, on September 23, 2016, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton closed most of its offices. Close to 800 employees participated in a community day to make a difference with regional organizations, said Emilio.
  • Promote local economy and entrepreneurship: The President explained that each of the firm’s offices works on developing a thriving business ecosystem and vigorous local economy. Entrepreneurs and their success is the firm’s reason for existence. Emilio also emphasized the firm’s desire to make their success a global affair, which it is able to do thanks to its connection with the Grant Thornton International world network, present in over 130 countries.
