Crowe Horwath International appoints tax director

Crowe Horwath International, the ninth-largest accountancy network in the world, has appointed John Stewart as its International Tax Director.

Stewart is the managing partner of Crowe Horwath Studio Associato Servizi Professionali Integrati, a large Italian firm with 650 employees.

Stewart’s global role involves assessing and enhancing the international tax client service delivery capabilities of Crowe Horwath International member firms. This includes monitoring firm growth and the content of training programmes, evaluating member firm compliance with common tax practice standards and supervising tax practice inspection programs.

“John’s previous experience of creating and building substantial international tax practices will be of great help to our member firms as they continue to grow their international tax practices,” Crowe Horwath International chief executive Frank Arford said.

During his career, Stewart has twice created and grown significant tax consulting practices. He has also been a managing partner for a tax, corporate finance, legal and outsourcing practice at a Big Four firm in Italy for more than eight years, growing it from 40 to 1,200 people.

Stewart has been a Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales fellow since 1979 and is a member of the supervisory board of the Barclays Italian Infrastructure Fund.

Stewart begins the global role in November and will continue to be SASPI’s managing partner.
