Forum of Firms
Kreston Global is a member of the Forum of Firms. The forum is an association of international networks of accounting firms. The main goal is to promote consistent and high-quality standards of financial reporting and auditing practices worldwide.
Kreston was formed in 1971 by two entrepreneurs, Dr Gabriel Brotzl of German accountancy firm Bansbach, and Michael Ross, who was a partner the UK accountancy firm Finnie & Co. They set Kreston up to allow independent entrepreneurial firms access the global network and compete against the larger firms that were starting to consolidate.
This year 2021 we celebrate 50 years of Kreston and are now called Kreston Global in recognition of the expansion of our network. We remain true to our founders’ values of providing responsive, empathetic and personal support for mid-sized entrepreneurial businesses and individuals to expand overseas.
