Russell Bedford International has added firms in Brazil and Peru to its network.

Grupo Maciel was founded in the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre in 2010. It has six offices across Brazil. The principal offices of the eight-partner group, with around 80 professional staff, are located in Porto Alegre, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia, with an additional presence in Curitiba and Belo Horizonte.

The firm offers auditing, management consulting, and IT consulting. The practice has a client base of around 200 clients, which comprises large national organisations with multiple locations, medium and small organisations, including public and private companies, financial institutions, energy companies, pension funds, insurers, foundations, cooperatives and international organisations.

Luis Acosta Peche & Asociados was founded in 2011 in Lima, Peru. The group comprises two entities – an audit practice (Luis Acosta Peche & Asociados S.C. de R.L) and a consulting practice (LA Corporation S.A.C.).

The principle two partners are supported by a director and a total of 45 personnel, and the audit practice is registered with the Padrón de Auditores Independientes del Colegio de Contadores Públicos de Lima and with the Registro de Sociedades de Auditoría Externa (RESAE) de la Superintendencia de Banca, Seguros y AFP.

Russell Bedford CEO, Stephen Hamlet, said: “I am delighted to announce this further development of Russell Bedford’s presence in Latin America. The network has held a strong market position in the region for many years and these new appointments will further cement our position there; providing greater access to services and expertise for clients of our members.

“It is my pleasure to welcome both Grupo Maciel and Luis Acosta Peche & Asociados. I wish them the very best in their positions as new members of Russell Bedford and look forward to working with their practices and helping fully integrate their teams into our network.”
