Baker Tilly International has appointed Eyala Horowitz as its new regional chairman for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
He succeeds Ted Verkade, who in eight years helped the network expand from 30 firms to more than 80 firms that generate combined revenue of $1.13bn.
Horowitz is the former managing partner and CEO of Baker Tilly in Israel.
“I am honoured to be given this opportunity. Europe, Middle East & Africa is the network’s largest region in terms of coverage – 81 firms operating in 71 territories – and also the most diverse. I believe the region has a lot of untapped potential,” he said.
“Through effective communication and collaboration between member firms I am committed to driving cross-border business within the region, sharing expertise among firms and further building the Baker Tilly brand.”
Verkade will remain a member of Baker Tilly International’s international board.
