Grand Thornton Acquires Strategy Firm ARRYVE


Grant Thornton LLP has acquired substantially all of the assets of ARRYVE LLC, a strategy consulting firm based in Bellevue, Washington.

ARRYVE, which was founded in 2007, has consulting capabilities spanning domains that include marketing and sales, operations, human capital, finance and accounting, information technology, and corporate strategy. ARRYVE also champions a process called “Applied Catalystics,” a philosophy of dynamic disruption and tested methodologies that deliver seriously structured solutions, and business insights that can only be inspired by a truly interdisciplinary team, says Mike McGuire, Grant Thornton’s CEO.

“The team at ARRYVE understands the business consulting and strategic solutions that make sense for our clients and how to apply them for real-world results,” says Srikant Sastry, National Managing Principal, Advisory Services for Grant Thornton.

McGuire, says  ”their focus on unique, distinctive client service to organizations large and small brings tremendous value to move our clients confidently into the future.”

ARRYVE was named one of Consulting’s Seven Small Jewels in 2011.

The 60 ARRYVE professionals, primarily based in Bellevue, will join Grant Thornton, working out of the former ARRYVE office at 2010 156th Avenue, Northeast. The Bellevue location becomes Grant Thornton’s 59th office.
