Liza Robbins named Kreston CEO

Liza Robbins has been named as Jon Lisby’s successor as CEO of network Kreston International, effective 1 August.

Robbins joined following nine years as CEO of association Morison KSi, during which she helped expand its coverage to over 80 countries. She also led the merger between Morison International and KS International in 2016.

Lisby said: “I am delighted that we have succeeded in securing Liza and considerable thanks are owed by the network to the Kreston International chairman and board for the thorough and extensive recruitment exercise that has been completed so successfully.

“Liza has a proven international track record as a change agent and has extensive experience in the fields of information technology, media as well as professional and membership services. With the technology revolution already disrupting the global accounting profession, I have no doubt that Liza will be an exceptional asset to our network and the further development of our growth strategy. Liza is accustomed to working at board level and I am really looking forward to supporting her during the period leading up to my retirement.”

Kreston chairman Bent Kofoed commented: “I am proud that with Jon’s leadership, Kreston now spans 200 firms in over 125 countries. Liza is a perfect successor to Jon: her extensive corporate acumen and dynamism will build on the strategies already in place advancing our networks brand and global business to the next level.”

Commenting on her appointment, Robbins added: “I have followed and admired Kreston International for many years so I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the network as CEO on 1 August 2018. Kreston is a world class organisation that thrives by skilfully and uniquely combining deep personal relationships with superior global expertise. Kreston is extremely well placed to deliver lucrative opportunities to member firms and their clients and I am excited to drive the network to its next stage of development and further strengthen our partnerships.”
