Crowe Horwath International is now ranked as the eighth largest global professional services network, as reported by the International Accounting Bulletin’s (IAB) 2016 World Survey results.
Moving up a position in global ranking has been a hard won victory for Crowe Horwath. So how did we do it? Below are just a few achievements that propelled our network to a year of peak performance:
- Our calendar year ending December 2016 was marked by a year of growth across all of our regions and lines of business. Asia Pacific and Latin America grew in the double-digits. This is supported by North America’s strong growth of eight percent. Middle East and Europe continued to experience modest growth, despite operating in a challenging economic environment.
- All of our lines of business grew five percent or greater with Audit & Accounting growing five percent, Tax growing nine percent and Advisory growing six percent. Further, while many networks are experiencing a contracting of their audit and accounting business, our practice grew demonstrating Crowe Horwath’s commitment and ability to deliver cost effective, quality compliance services.
- The strength of our network, global brand and unwavering commitment to each other was evidenced in the volume and number of firms participating in cross-border client proposals and engagements.
- Eighteen new member firms were added in 2016, bringing our global reach to 129 countries across 764 offices.
