1 July 2019 Mazars, the international audit and advisory firm, today announces the creation of Mazars North America Alliance.
THE ALLIANCE EXPANDS MAZARS’ PRESENCE IN THE REGION, GIVING CLIENTS ACCESS TO 40,000 PROFESSIONALS ACROSS THE GLOBE
Mazars North America Alliance substantially enhances Mazars’ on the ground coverage in North America, giving international clients access to an additional 16,000 professionals from five major accounting and consulting firms in the U.S. and Canada.
“This Alliance agreement is a game-changer for Mazars. We are already present in the U.S. and Canada and the Alliance significantly strengthens our capability across North America, enabling us to better serve our international clients in the region.” says Hervé Hélias, CEO & Chairman of Mazars Group.
Mazars North America Alliance is an alliance agreement between Mazars and five leading firms in the United States and Canada – BKD, Dixon Hughes Goodman, Moss Adams, Plante Moran (U.S. firms) and MNP (Canadian firm). Geographically, these five Alliance firms will complement Mazars USA and Mazars Canada, enabling Mazars to achieve full national coverage in North America.
With this Alliance, Mazars now has 40,000 professionals serving clients around the globe: 24,000 professionals across 89 countries and territories in Mazars’ unique integrated partnership, and 16,000 professionals in the U.S. and Canada via Mazars North America Alliance. With this scale and breadth of talent, Mazars offers tailored, consistent and high-quality services to its clients wherever they are in the world.
“The Alliance increases our ability to serve our international clients around the world. In a highly concentrated audit and advisory sector, this Alliance provides an alternative. We have a long history of working with these five firms and share the same values of quality, ethics and professionalism. All five firms are registered with the PCAOB (the body overseeing the audits of public companies in the U.S.) and through the Mazars North America Alliance they will contribute to the quality and expertise that our large clients expect throughout North America.” says Hélias.
“With Mazars North America Alliance, Mazars strengthens its critical scale to meet the needs of large international companies, at a time when mandatory rotation of audit firms is taking place in Europe and where the debate on the implementation of joint audit is relevant in the UK”, concludes Hélias.
