Grant Thornton appoints new Philadelphia tax principal

PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES — Audit and assurance, tax, and advisory services provider Grant Thornton recently appointed Chris Scarpa as its new tax principal in the firm’s tax and asset management division in Philadelphia.

Scarpa, an attorney, was a partner for 26 years at the law firm Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, LLP. 

He specialized in the taxation of pooled investment vehicles, mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and real estate mortgage investment conduits (REMICs). Scarpa also advised investment companies on compliance requirements. 

Additionally, Scarpa is well-versed in the taxation of financial products, and is knowledgeable in investment-related international tax issues such as the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act and the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act.

“As both our Philadelphia office and our Asset Management team continue to grow, Chris will help deliver the personalized service clients need in today’s challenging business environment,” said  Dave Maturo, Grant Thornton’s market managing principal in Philadelphia.

Grant Thornton has over 50 offices in the U.S. and employs over 9,000 workers. It recorded $2.4 billion in revenues for the fiscal year that ended on July 31, 2023.

Scarpa’s appointment is among the many improvements made by Grant Thornton this year. Earlier this month, the firm appointed Varun Dewan and Erica King to spearhead its Business Process Solutions team in the United Kingdom.
