Press release by PrimeGlobal – PrimeGlobal is pleased to announce the addition of Ruff & Associes, CTN France and ORIGA Group to the Association’s Europe, Middle East & Africa Region.
Ruff & Associés:
Ruff & Associés was founded in 1976 by Gérard Ruff, in the city of Nice where it remains headquartered today, with branch offices located over the Riviera in Mouans-Sartoux, and Le Cannet Des Maures. The firm is comprised of 6 chartered accountant partners, who are supported by 45 highly-qualified professionals: accountants, auditors, experts in employment and tax law, and legal advisors who are there to advise and assist clients in all their endeavours.
Managing Partner, Arnaud Ruff recognizes that it is their employees’ dedication and commitment to providing quality service that is the firm’s driving force. The entire firm shares the same client-centered vision of business and the belief that establishing, developing and maintaining trust-based relationships with its clients, recognizing its clients’ needs and advising the best course of action to meet and exceed those needs are what makes their clients, and by extension, their firm, grow and prosper.
CTN France was founded in 1929 with the company name of Comptanor, and was responsible for keeping the accounts of a client base of traders and craftsmen. In 1982, Comptanor became chartered accountants, and in 1985, it became an auditorship. The firm changed its name to CTN France in 2004. Today, CTN France is comprised of 10 partners and 100 professionals. Its main office, located in Lille, houses its international team. Two branch offices are located in the cities of Maubeuge and Bergues, both in the north of France (Hauts de France).
The firm provides global services, such as audit, mergers and acquisition, tax and legal assistance, accounting, social compliance, and payroll and IT dedicated to finance to a wide range of clients, from small starting businesses to very large companies (up to 1,000 million euro turnover), and is particularly involved in industrial services and commercial sectors, as well as many not-for-profit entities.
Per Managing Partner Francis Kieffer, CTN France strongly adheres to its core values: (skills, innovation, respect, and self-fulfillment) on the basis of which client relationships are developed. Further, Kieffer advises, CTN France is particularly enthusiastic when involved in client growth, moving small, start-up businesses to growing, mature companies.
