Andrew Griggs (Kreston Reeves), Edmond Chan (Kreston CAC), Elena Ramírez Marín (Kreston Iberaudit) and Francisco Bracamonte (Kreston BSG) were re-elected as board directors. Howard has been active in Kreston since CBIZ MHM joined Kreston in 2005, he subsequently joined the Board in 2014, before taking up his current role as Chair. Howard commented, “This is an exciting time to be at Kreston as we continue our evolution as a network and find new and unique ways to help our members do more international business together. I am looking forward to my new role with Kreston, assisting the network and its members with the execution of our strategic plan and continuing to build the platform that supports our long-term growth and development.”

Howard continued, “I would like to say a huge thank you to Bent and congratulate him on his accomplishments as Chair and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead. I am proud of the journey we have taken to this point and am very excited about what the future holds for Kreston. We have only just begun!”
