CEO Brad Preber statement on Ukraine


I recently spoke with Rimma Tabakh, one of our talented Grant Thornton colleagues and a native of Kyiv, Ukraine. We talked about her upbringing, the people of her home country, and the hardworking members of Grant Thornton’s Ukraine office. We talked, most of all, about community.

The Grant Thornton community condemns the invasion of Ukraine and the loss of innocent lives that has occurred because of Russia’s actions. We are humbled by the opportunity to provide support to our colleagues and families affected by this violence through our global network of member firms. Grant Thornton colleagues in the U.S. are supporting Ukraine through donations to the Red Cross, UNICEF, the United Nations Refugee Agency, the Salvation Army and other international organizations.

As Rimma conveyed to me, this event has been catastrophic and heartbreaking for every Ukrainian — whether living in Ukraine or outside its borders. “The world needs to know we’re here for them,” she told me.

Grant Thornton wants them to know we are — today, tomorrow and in all the days ahead. We believe all people deserve the blessings of peace we have so long cherished in America, and we hope for a swift end to this senseless strife.
