Grant Thornton merges two Orlando offices as firm continues to grow in Florida


The firm’s Orange Avenue team will combine with personnel at Grant Thornton’s location in the Lee Vista office park


CHICAGO — Grant Thornton LLP, one of America’s largest audit, tax and advisory firms, will merge its two locations in Orlando, Florida. The merger will become effective January 1, 2023, as teammates in the firm’s downtown office on Orange Avenue join their colleagues at the office the firm opened in Orlando’s Lee Vista office park in 2021.


According to Dawn Olivardia, Grant Thornton LLP’s office managing partner in Orlando, the merger will help the firm focus its growth in an office designed for the future of work.


“As Grant Thornton continues to embrace a flexible approach to the future of work, our Orlando space provides the amenities our people need to focus and collaborate in an office setting,” said Olivardia, who is also the firm’s Florida Tax partner in-charge. “We’re hiring many new colleagues for our Orlando practice, and this singular location will complement our ongoing investment in this city, the state of Florida, and the clients we are proud to serve.”


The firm’s location in the Lee Vista office park currently houses Grant Thornton’s national indirect tax practice: a group of 75 professionals focusing on sales/use and property tax compliance and consulting services. Since this highly talented team utilizes a data-informed approach that includes analytics, automation and visualization, the office is home to ample tools that will help its newest tenants continuously deliver high-quality results for the firm’s clients.


In total, 60 Grant Thornton professionals will make the move to the space in Lee Vista office park — which the firm is enhancing via renovations and new teaming spaces.


“The city of Orlando and our incredible business community wholeheartedly embraced us when we opened this Lee Vista office last year, and that confirmed our notion that this is precisely the city we want to continue to grow in,” Olivardia added. “The future of work calls for spaces that are highly valuable and accessible to employees and clients alike, and our Orlando office is that kind of space.”
