Alberta firm Tien Rostad to join Grant Thornton LLP

TORONTO AND CAMROSE, AB, Nov. 25, 2011 /CNW/ - National accounting, tax and advisory firm Grant Thornton LLP announced today that effective December 1, 2011, the Camrose, Alberta accounting and business advisory firm Tien Rostad LLP will join Grant Thornton LLP.

"We have worked in the same market segment for years and we have high regard for each others' work," said Phil Noble, Executive Partner and Chief Executive Officer, Grant Thornton LLP. "We see our coming together as a great growth opportunity for both firms, and we are particularly happy to be able to strengthen our presence in Alberta."

Tien Rostad has provided accounting and business advisory services to Camrose-area businesses for 32 years. This 15 member Alberta firm will join Grant Thornton's Northern Alberta Business Unit, which also has offices in Edmonton and Wetaskiwin.

"Joining Grant Thornton will give us access to more resources—our scope of services will be expanded, as will our technical strength. We feel it is a good fit because our culture and market focus is strongly aligned with theirs. Like us, Grant Thornton has always had a deep commitment to personalized client service," said Doug Tien, founding partner, Tien Rostad.

"When Doug and I founded the firm in 1979, it was natural to come home to Camrose, where we both grew up," adds Shirley Rostad, the firm's other founding partner.
