Crowe Horwath International announces global rebrand of all member firms.
May 9, 2018: Crowe Horwath International, the eighth largest global accounting network, has announced that the network and its member firms will rebrand. The rebrand will see over 220 member firms globally adopt the name Crowe, reflecting the increasingly integrated and seamless nature of the network as well as its shared values and core purpose.
Crowe Horwath International will rename to Crowe Global.
The move will assist in promoting the network’s shared knowledge and global resources in response to changing client needs, driven by digitalisation and the borderless world of modern business. The change of brand happens shortly after another significant development for the network, the appointment of a new Global CEO, David Mellor, who took over leadership as of 1 April, 2018. Under the new brand and leadership, Crowe reaffirms its determination to drive forward the profession and increase discussion of audit, tax, risk and consultancy issues at board level globally while retaining its emphasis on market-leading local expertise.
David Mellor, Chief Executive Officer of Crowe Howarth International, comments: “Our members are consistently recognized for their market-leading expertise and I am proud to say 2017 was no exception. Crowe will thrive in a rapidly changing world through our clear strategic vision, new common brand and the commitment of our members. “We distinguish ourselves by bringing smart decisions that deliver lasting value to clients, talent, and the communities where we live and work. The rebrand provides the perfect platform for our trusted professionals to continue to share knowledge and resources which are of great benefit to the boardroom and in the countries and markets that we service. “In future, when you see the Crowe brand name, you can be reassured of the first class quality service that our people deliver on behalf of our clients.”
In line with the rebrand, Crowe will launch a new look website, as well as a handle for social media site Twitter @CroweGlobal.
