The Managing Partners' Forum, an organization that promotes the value of leadership and management excellence, has named Grant Thornton as having the "Best Programme for Leadership Development" at their 2015 awards.

Judged by an independent panel of subject matter experts, the award recognized the management team whose program combines leadership requirements with innovativeness.

“Grant Thornton is honored by this recognition,” stated Ed Nusbaum, Grant Thornton International Ltd's global CEO. "Focusing on leadership development is a top priority as we continually look for ways to help our people unlock their potential for growth at work and in their communities. Congratulations go to all of our people globally for this award."

“Since 2008, Grant Thornton has run the AMP program, which targets rapid development of senior managers," said the Partners' Forum upon granting the award. In the intervening years, 292 participants across 43 member firms have successfully graduated from AMP.
