Chicago (Jan. 24, 2003) -- Global accounting, tax, and business advisory firm Grant Thornton has appointed Dean Jorgensen managing partner of its national tax office in Washington, D.C.

Grant Thornton recently reorganized its federal tax solutions group as the national tax office, which provides strategic tax planning and implementation in various subject matters involving federal taxation.

Jorgensen, a 15-year instructor and a 10-year Grant Thornton national tax education committee member, is now responsible for directing the firm's subject matter experts in providing firm-wide federal tax expertise and quality assurance. He also served as the leader of the firm's corporate tax practice and a past member of the American Institute of CPAs’ national committee on the taxation of corporations and shareholders.

"A common and critical element to all the functions of the national tax office is a deep commitment to technical excellence," Jorgensen said. "I'm very comfortable in that role due to my involvement with national tax training. I also have an operating office background, which gives me an understanding of the federal tax law beyond my particular tax expertise, as well as an understanding and appreciation of the needs of our local operating offices and clients."
