Kreston International has appointed Rich Howard as its new chair, following the completion of Bent Kofoed’s four year term as chair.

Howard has been active in Kreston since CBIZ MHM joined the network in 2005 and joined the board in 2014.

Along with Howard’s appointment, Eustis Corrigan and Martin Hommersom join the board as directors. Andrew Griggs, Edmond Chan, Elena Ramírez Marín and Francisco Bracamonte were re-elected as board directors.

Commenting on his appointment, Howard said: “This is an exciting time to be at Kreston as we continue our evolution as a network and find new and unique ways to help our members do more international business together. I am looking forward to my new role with Kreston, assisting the network and its members with the execution of our strategic plan and continuing to build the platform that supports our long-term growth and development.

“We are building something very special at Kreston, with a high performing team in place and really demonstrating the value Kreston can bring to international clients.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to Bent and congratulate him on his accomplishments as Chair and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead. I am proud of the journey we have taken to this point and am very excited about what the future holds for Kreston. We have only just begun!”
