Jim Peko has been appointed Managing Principal of Grant Thornton’s national Advisory Services practice. He most recently served as national managing principal of the firm’s Transaction Services practice, where he guided a wide range of clients through a variety of complex transactions. Peko has nearly 30 years of experience providing clients with financial advisory services focused on improving performance and building long-term sustainable value.

“Jim has built a high-growth practice focused on creating value in a volatile market, and he has done so through innovative leadership and a people-first management style,” says Brad Preber, interim CEO of Grant Thornton. “He takes over a well-positioned Advisory practice, and we know Jim will help our clients continue to grow and thrive.”

Peko succeeds Srikant Sastry, who led Advisory Services for the past five years of his 15-year tenure with the firm. The firm credits Sastry with transforming its Advisory practice into a full-service consultancy – one that has nearly doubled in size and revenue over the past five years.

In addition to building and expanding Transaction Services as a key offering for Grant Thornton, Peko has served as a member of the firm’s Partnership Board for the past 20 months. He is also a member of the board of directors for the American Bankruptcy Institute, and is a chartered financial analyst, a certified insolvency and restructuring advisor and certified in distressed business valuation.
