History

The head office of Raymond Chabot Grand Thornton is located in the National Bank Tower.

The firm was founded in Montreal in 1948 by Jacques Raymond and Guy Chabot under the name Raymond Chabot. In the 1950s, the firm took on two additional partners, Guy Martin and Jacques Paré, and changed its name to Raymond Chabot Martin Paré. Mr. Raymond was the firm's first CEO, and he retained that post until his retirement in 1980. Mr. Raymond was succeeded by Mr. Serge Saucier that year. Mr. Saucier was succeeded by Mr. Richard Payette and then Mr. Jean Robillard.

Today, the firm is associated with the Chicago-based accounting firm Grant Thornton LLP, one of the largest outside of the Big Four, comprising a global network of 30,000 employees.3 This association prompted the firm to change its name to Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton.

RCGT is also active in its community, both in education4 and the arts.5 It also contributed to policy reforms such as proposed changes to the Acceptable Accounting Principles and Auditing Standards in Canada.6
