May 14, 2018:Crowe BGK LLP is celebrating the announcement made by Crowe Horwath International, the eighth largest global accounting network, that the network will rebrand. Crowe BGK has been a member of the Crowe network since 2013.

Crowe Horwath International will rename to Crowe Global and over 220 member firms globally will adopt the name Crowe, reflecting the increasingly integrated and seamless nature of the network as well as its shared values and core purpose. While our firm will remain named Crowe BGK, we are enthusiastic about elevating the Crowe profile throughout our region.

The move will assist in promoting the network’s shared knowledge and global resources in response to changing client needs, driven by digitalization and the borderless world of modern business. The change of brand happens shortly after another significant development for the network, the appointment of a new Global CEO, David Mellor, who took over leadership as of 1 April, 2018.

Under the new brand and leadership, Crowe Global reaffirms its determination to drive forward the profession and increase discussion of audit, tax, risk and consultancy issues at board level globally.

Brian Kreisman, Crowe BGK Managing Partner, comments:

It is with pride we call ourselves Crowe BGK and we will continue to build the Crowe brand awareness in Montreal, Ottawa – our nation’s capital, and Eastern Canada. The rebrand further strengthens our network and paves the way to be even more recognized locally and internationally.”

David Mellor, Chief Executive Officer of Crowe Horwath International, comments:

“We distinguish ourselves by bringing smart decisions that deliver lasting value to clients, talent, and the communities where we live and work. The rebrand provides the perfect platform for our trusted professionals to continue to share knowledge and resources which are of great benefit to the boardroom and in the countries and markets that we service.”

In line with the rebrand, the Crowe firms will launch a new look website, as well as a handle for social media site Twitter @CroweGlobal.
