After nine years in office, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Emilio B. Imbriglio, will end his mandate on December 31, 2021
Montreal, December 1, 2021 – After a nine-year term centered on profitability and innovation, Emilio B. Imbriglio will leave the firm on December 31, 2021, as provided in our partnership agreement. A Partner for 20 years who also served as Partnership Board Chair for three years, Emilio was elected President and CEO in 2013.
Emilio consistently provided strong leadership. A leader of action and vision, he was the sixth president elected to that position. His vision for our 360-service offering contributed significantly to Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s position as a dynamic and innovative leader. Very people-oriented and inclusive, he worked with his colleagues and successfully transformed the firm by enhancing its governance agility, making it stronger and focused on cutting-edge technology and services for local businesses.
Under Emilio’s leadership, the firm significantly increased its market presence and staffing level from 2,400 to nearly 2,800 professionals. Emilio’s governance was marked by the digital shift, as the entire management team followed suit in this project within the digital universe, through the development of products such as taxō or the acquisition of specialized firms such as VARS and FPM360. Other cutting-edge services have also been developed under his presidency, such as AURAY, specializing in business immigration, recruitment and international mobility.
An outstanding communicator, Emilio made a point of staying very close to employees by always keeping them well informed. For Emilio, the firm’s raison d’être will always be its talent and clients. They were always a priority and he continually strived to meet their needs.
Under his leadership, the firm has enjoyed increased brand awareness and unparalleled market leadership. Moreover, several unique and historic partnerships were concluded, and the firm is now an influential and dominant player both here and across the Grant Thornton International network that includes 140 countries and more than 58,000 professionals.
All the partners and employees would like to thank him sincerely for all his accomplishments and wish him every success in his future endeavours. Emilio will continue to serve on important boards of directors and in strategic roles within organizations.
With the end of Emilio’s term, the Partnership Board took the opportunity to modernize the firm’s partnership agreement to reshape the role and responsibilities of the new President and Chief Executive Officer. The process is still underway. Until the process is complete, the Partnership Board has agreed to an interim governance.
