PKF International welcomes new member firms in South Africa

Press release by PKF International

Press release by PKF International - PKF International Limited has strengthened its South African footprint with the admission of PKF Constantia Valley Cape Town Inc and PKF Saldanha Inc as member firms effective 1 March 2016.

PKF Constantia Valley, formerly Alliott Andersen Nell Inc, is an independent five-partner firm with a 21-year pedigree, while PKF Saldanha is a well-established independent firm servicing the West Coast. These additions expand the PKF network's presence further in South Africa following admissions of several firms in Johannesburg, Tyger Valley and Knysna over the past couple of years, adding to its membership in Durban, Port Elizabeth and Welkom.

PKF South Africa Chairman, Kevin Gertenbach, said: "The PKF network is careful to ensure that new member firms closely match our needs, in essence seeking, experienced, dynamic firms with an entrepreneurial culture and a solid reputation in the market. We now have a significant national presence. Cape Town and the West Coast are important economic sectors for us to be represented in, and we have a client base of substantial companies that require national representation. The two new member firms have further consolidated the PKF network's Top-10 status in South Africa, and in many of our markets we are a top-three player."

PKF International's Africa Regional Director, Theo Vermaak, said: "We are really pleased to welcome PKF Constantia Valley and PKF Saldanha to the PKF family as we continue to expand and strengthen the PKF brand. Both firms fit well with our values and strong focus on clients and people, and this move meets our strategic objective to recruit firms with significant practices that cover the main South African commercial centres".

Francois Hofmeyr, managing partner of PKF Saldanha, which is located near the Saldanha Industrial Development Zone, is confident that the move to PKF is the right one, "This will ensure clients operating in and around Saldanha Bay have access to in-depth technical resources to support their business growth."

Kobus Nell and Ken Andersen, joint managing partners of PKF Constantia Valley, believe that the PKF network offers significant benefits to its member firms. "Being part of a large international network, PKF Constantia Valley will benefit from access to a range of specialists, providing clients with a one-stop service. In today's global business environment and with the changes to auditing practices, we need to offer clients a larger service network. We have chosen to align with a strong brand that is the best match to our own culture, centered on people, values and independence," says Nell.
