Speaking about the appointment, Russell Bedford CEO Stephen Hamlet said: “The appointment of a large, well-established Boston firm is a fantastic development for our expanding network. LGA’s wide ranging services will add considerably to our already impressive service range in the US. Clearly a firm with substantial drive and determination, rising significantly in the ranks of US accounting firms in recent years, we are delighted to gain a firm of their calibre while strengthening our North American presence in a key location. Having personally met at their office in Boston back in March this year, it is my absolute pleasure to complete the application process and to welcome all at LGA!” 

John D. Geraci, managing partner at LGA, added: ”We are excited to join Russell Bedford International so that we can collaborate with their vast array of network firms located in North America and internationally. At LGA, ensuring that we can continue to meet the evolving needs of our clients is an essential element of our growth strategy. As more and more companies conduct business across the globe, it is important for us to join an organisation that will provide access to a breadth and depth of resources that we can leverage on our client’s behalf, whether they are exploring doing business in London or Dubai. Russell Bedford is focused on building a quality team of member firms who support one another and their respective practices, and LGA is proud to represent a significant addition to their US strategy.”
