Praxity Chairman, Jos van Huut, has been named as the new Chair of the European Group of International Accounting Networks (EGIAN).
EGIAN represents leading European members of international networks outside the ‘big four’ and comprises 20 firms generating some US$ 32 billion in revenues. It provides a forum for mid-tier firms to discuss and commonly opine on key developments affecting the profession in Europe.
Jos’s appointment compliments his work with Praxity and fits well with his position as Vice President of the Federation of European Accountants.
He comments: “EGIAN has an important role to fulfil – our profession is undergoing significant and rapid change driven by new regulation and market demand. This Group allows members to raise concerns of mutual interest and collectively lobby the key regulators on important issues. One thing’s for sure, having good connections in Brussels is key in this current dynamic environment.”
Jos takes over the position from Andrew Brown at Baker Tilly International.
Praxity is the world’s largest Alliance of independent accountancy firms and amongst the top 10 global accounting associations. It has 60 Participant members, (with 2,500 plus partners) in 87 countries supporting 27,700 staff in 553 offices. Earlier this year, the Alliance out-performed its peers after reporting an 11.8% increase in member revenue for 2011.
