Kreston Global welcomes two new member firms: Bahrain-based Awael Public Accountants and Management Consultants, and Bahamas-based Kreston Bahamas.
Kreston Bahamas provides accountancy, advisory, audit and assurance, outsourcing and taxation services to domestic and international organisations. Founded by partners Jacqueline Hunt, Pretino Albury, and Sean Rolle, it has a broad portfolio of local and international clients, with a particular expertise in key sectors including financial services, leisure and hospitality, public sector, retail, healthcare, real estate and consumer business.
Bahrain-based Awael Public Accountants was founded by partner Abbas Radhi to provide high quality partner-led accounting, auditing, consulting, risk management and general business services to clients operating in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Clients range from large international entities to emerging and owner-managed businesses, with a particular expertise in sectors including construction, retail and hospitality.
This announcement follows the rebrand of the Kreston Global network in July 2021 and comes in the same year that Kreston Global celebrates its 50th anniversary.
Abbas Radhi, partner at Awael Public Accountants, said“Having worked alongside Kreston Global firms for many years they were a natural partner for us as we look to develop our offering. There were a number of natural synergies but we were particularly drawn to the depth and breadth of expertise across the network, their commitment to integrity and ethical values and the emphasis on collaboration underpinned by technology. We will be working with our new colleagues to maximise the benefit of joining a global network for our clients.”
Jacqueline Hunt, partner at Kreston Bahamas, said, “Kreston Global stood out amongst other global networks thanks to its forward-looking ethos, strong sense of community, and standards of excellence. As we move into this next stage of our growth, we will be working closely with our new colleagues to build on the success we have enjoyed to date, and to provide our domestic and international clients with the breadth and depth of service associated with a global network.”
Liza Robbins, CEO of Kreston Global, said,“I would like to welcome our new colleagues in The Bahamas and Bahrain to the Kreston Global network in an exciting period of growth as international business recovers from the pandemic. These two firms, so geographically far apart, embody the spirit of excellence and collaboration that we at Kreston Global have always championed. We look forward to working with them to build on their many successes to date, both in their respective regions and beyond.”
