Andy Armanino has been appointed as chariman of Moore Global, following the resignation of Richard Moore who served as chair for 15 years.
Armanino, who is currently a member of Moore Global’s board, will succeed as chairman of Moore Global from 1 January 2020.
Prior to being a member at Moore Global, Armanino was CEO and managing partner at Armanino LLP.
Moore said: “I am stepping down at a time when our network can face the future with tremendous optimism. We are now an organisation of true global capability, with a reputation for quality and differentiated client service. I am personally delighted that Andy will succeed me in the role.
“He is an individual with great compassion, drive and vision, and a global perspective on how the role of professional service firms must evolve and adapt, to continuously better serve client needs”.
Armanino said: “It’s a privilege for me to succeed Richard – his grandfather started the original Moore firm in London more than a century ago, and under Richard’s leadership, Moore Global is now one of the leading networks worldwide.
“The organisation is well positioned to meet the main challenges facing our profession as we look ahead: sustaining the talent pool that we need to grow our future leaders and innovators; and, as our business capabilities improve because of a world made faster and smaller through technology and data, we must ensure it is clients, first and foremost, who benefit from our ability to enhance our already strong international expertise and global resources.”
Since 2004 the network has grown its combined revenues from around $600m to around $3bn, extending its global coverage to more than 110 countries.
