Atlanta Business Chronicle names Grant Thornton’s Jason Perry one of the city’s most admired leaders


ATLANTA — Jason Perry, Grant Thornton’s market managing principal in Atlanta, has been named to the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Most Admired list. He is one of just two accounting firm executives included on the annual list, which honors Atlanta’s leading CEOs, managing directors and market leaders.


Perry has worked at Grant Thornton for 22 years, including four years as the firm’s leader in Atlanta. In this role, Perry helps his office’s roughly 350 professionals deliver personalized, high-quality services to audit, tax and advisory clients across a broad range of industries.


“Jason’s leadership has been pivotal to our ongoing growth in Atlanta, and his teammates — myself included — admire his personable approach to business and client service,” said Mark Margulies, Grant Thornton’s national managing principal of Tax Services and managing principal for the Southeast region. “Jason is a singular leader who invests his time and energy into our people and the Atlanta community, and leaders like him are precisely what’s needed to propel any business forward.”


An auditor by training, Perry has ample experience serving companies in industries such as manufacturing, technology and life sciences. His knowledge of these areas makes him an in-demand resource both locally and nationally. In addition, he is a graduate of Leadership Atlanta — one of the oldest sustained community leadership programs in the nation. He currently serves as a board member of the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and is a member of The Carter Center Board of Councilors and the Rotary Club of Atlanta.


“Leading our Atlanta professionals and giving back to this incredible city have been two of the biggest honors of my life, and none of it would be possible without the support of the most talented people in the professional services industry: my teammates,” Perry said. “Grant Thornton’s future looks brighter than ever, and we’re going to keep doing everything we can to provide second-to-none client service while making a difference where we live and work.”


Perry is a certified public accountant in Georgia. He earned a bachelor’s degree in management and certificates in accounting, finance and economics from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
