Alliott Group appoints Ken Miles as Worldwide Chair

Press release by Alliott Group
Press release by Alliott Group - The Managing Partner of Los Angeles (Century City) CPA firm NSBN LLP, Ken Miles CPA, has been elevated to Chair of Alliott Group as of 1st November 2016. 

At its recent AGM at the 2016 Worldwide Conference in London, Alliott Group members voted to endorse the promotion of Ken Miles from Deputy Chair to Worldwide Chair. Miles will serve a three year term and takes over from John Kleopas of Kleopas Alliott Business Consultants (Athens, Greece). 

NSBN LLP is the representative member in Los Angeles, CA for Alliott Group, an international association established in 1979 that now includes some 170 member firms in 65 countries worldwide, including 35 member firms in North America. Under Miles’ leadership, Alliott Group will pursue a strategy to become the preferred international association for mid-market accounting and law firms looking to develop stronger connections on a national and international basis to benefit clients involved in multi-market business.

As Managing Partner of NSBN LLP, Miles has been instrumental in the Los Angeles firm being named among the Top 200 CPA Firms nationwide, the Best Firms to Work For nationwide, the Top 10 Best Firms Nationwide for Equality Leadership for Women, the Top 25 CPA Firms in Los Angeles County, and the Top 10 Best Places to Work in Los Angeles.

James Hickey, CEO of Alliott Group comments: “It is important that our Chair person can not only lend professional experience at the highest level, but can also lead from the front and inspire members at all levels of seniority to achieve more together. Ken’s commitment and support since joining the association six years ago have been invaluable and we look forward to an exciting next phase in our history under his leadership.

“John Kleopas, our previous Chair, led by example during his tenure and has taken the group to a new level.  His commercial acumen, strategic vision and common sense approach provided valuable stability for the group and set us firmly on the path to future growth. We thank John and know that we will be able to count on his continued support.” 

Ken Miles comments: “The growth opportunities available to Alliott Group and to its member firms are significant. Exciting plans are in place to ensure that we continue to evolve and remain relevant to the needs of outstanding mid-market professional firms that need extra support and resources to ensure they and their clients can reach their next level. I am very proud to take on this prestigious position and look forward to working with the Executive Office to implement our strategy in the next few years.”
