Del

Andersen Global named the members of the European Regional Board of Directors. This regional board will advise the global organization on issues critical to the continent to ensure that the group is working in a seamless way across the different countries of the region, practice areas, industries and also on the management of common protocols.

The European Regional Board of Directors, led by Co-Managing Partners for the European Region, Andrea De Vecchi and Paolo Mondia, will develop the strategy for the region and also participate in its implementation. The board is comprised of 14 top tax and legal Partners from Andersen Global member firms and five from collaborating firms, who will collaborate closely with Andersen Global Chairman and Andersen Tax LLC CEO, Mark Vorsatz, to consider and provide guidance on direction and operations in Europe.

The announcement of the EU Regional Board today at its first meeting in Portugal signals Andersen Global’s major expansion through Europe over the past four years, having added presence in several major economic hubs, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Portugal, France, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Turkey, Ireland, Austria, Poland, Greece, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Slovakia, the Netherlands and Switzerland, through its member firms and collaborating firms.

“We are proud of Andersen Global’s growth in Europe and have experienced an increase in clients demanding cross border services. Now is the time to implement a common governing group that will bring all the members in our region together in a coordinated way,” said Andrea De Vecchi. “In March of 2017, Andersen Global had 57 locations worldwide and today we have over 110. In the past year we added a new presence in Europe in significant markets such as the United Kingdom. But the most important thing about this growth is that we all share the same vision and core values regardless of location.”

Paolo Mondia added, “We truly believe that creating a supportive and rewarding environment that also helps every member of the firm to work closely with other offices, as well as participate in common training programs, will help in the knowledge-exchange between the different countries. The European Board of Directors will support this determination.”

SIA, European hi-tech company, leader in payment infrastructures and services, has further strengthened its positioning in the Nordic countries, by providing Danmarks Nationalbank with the new real-time gross settlement system (RTGS) that connects banks, mortgage banks and settlement systems.
