Metro Raleigh Business Radio on Business RadioX Welcomes Grant Thornton, Vaco and Nexsen Pruet

Revell-Pechar Interviews Southern, McCleary, Mitchener and Whitt About How Supporting NCTA Impacts Business

RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwired - October 30, 2014) - Metro Raleigh Business Radio welcomed to the studio Dewayne Southern and Matt McCleary of Grant Thornton LLPSid Mitchener of Vaco Raleigh and Sam Whitt of Nexsen Pruet. Host Ann Revell-Pechar met with this group of leaders to discuss their businesses and how supporting North Carolina Technology Association (NCTA) has impacted their business.

"We're one of the world's largest, independent tax audit advising firms in the world," said Southern of Grant Thornton. "We serve a number of industries, including private equity, financial services and non-profits." Grant Thornton works with a broad range of publicly and privately held companies, government agencies, financial institutions, and civic and religious organizations. The firm focuses on serving dynamic organizations that pursue growth holistically, whether through revenue improvement, leadership, mission fulfillment, or innovation.

"Finding and retaining talent is our primary focus," said Mitchener of Vaco. "We believe in relationships first. It's not a transactional business." Vaco matches the strongest accounting, financial, IT and administrative professionals with the unique project and permanent needs of their clients. Vaco has pedigreed players with either deep industry experience in the discipline they serve or significant and proven experience in the client realm. They have cutting-edge technology driven tools, a national reach and a collective network of professionals that lead to personalized solutions.

Sam Whitt with law firm Nexsen Pruet was also in-studio as an avid NCTA supporter and discussed how their firm is differentiated.

"We have rates that are designed for and consistent with the needs of the younger businesses, which is very helpful and enables those companies to get the same quality of representation as a larger business," Whitt noted. Nexsen Pruet represents businesses in virtually every industry. More than 190 attorneys practice in eight offices across the Carolinas. The National Law Journal ranks the firm as one of the largest in the United States.
