(UPDATE/CORRECTION) PwC Couldn’t Find a KPMG Partner to Join Their Irvine, California Office So They Poached a Grant Thornton Partner Instead

Today in partners ditching their firm for PwC news, Gary Wilson, a 20-year Grant Thornton veteran and managing partner of the Irvine, California office will take the exact same job at join PwC on January 5th. It appears this news was first reported by the OC Business Journal and not by a press release, which proves that the PwC flaks have all taken off for the holiday break. You should too. [OCBJ, KPMG v. PwC]

UPDATE/CORRECTION: A little misread on my part there, sorry about that. Gary Wilson isn't going to run the Irvine office. I also had to change the headline that originally read "PwC Couldn't Find a KPMG Partner to Run Their Irvine, California Office So They Poached a Grant Thornton Partner Instead" which is obviously wrong. Oh! and sorry to get your hopes up, Gary. You know how the eggnog can get ahold of you.
