Baker Tilly Canada, an accounting and consulting cooperative network, has appointed Sean Grant-Young as national director for tax and Tracy Mohn as national director for people and culture.

Based in Toronto, Grant-Young brings 14 years of experience in tax advisory and corporate tax function leadership.

Grant-Young will also oversee professional development and communications relating to tax policy changes.

He joins Baker Tilly from Dentalcorp Canada, where he spent five years as vice president of tax and treasury. Before that, Grant-Young spent nine years in Deloitte Canada’s tax practice, latterly as a senior manager.

Based in Calgary, Mohn has over 15 years of human resources experience, with expertise across HR transformation, process and execution of HR policy, employment contracts, payroll, and global and local employee relations.

In the newly created role, Mohn will manage talent development and workplace culture strategy and operations – overseeing talent acquisition and recruitment, employee development and training, performance management, and related HR programs.

For the last six years, Mohn has held a similar role at Baker Tilly Catalyst as director for people and culture. The Catalyst Group, a Calgary-based accounting and consulting firm, joined Baker Tilly as a member firm in 2021.

Before that, Mohn spent nine years at Halliburton, latterly as international HR global mobility advisor.

“As a leading advisory network, the most valuable asset we have by far is our people,” Lloyd said. “Having Tracy in this new role will further enable our network to attract and nurture the brightest and best talent in our industry. She will collaborate closely with our National leadership team, as well as our individual member firms, to drive a culture of excellence ⁠–⁠ ensuring our people have every opportunity for growth and fulfillment.”
