Crowe LLP is the largest member firm of Crowe Global, which is one of the largest global accounting networks in the world. The network consists of more than 200 independent accounting and advisory services firms in more than 130 countries around the world. Crowe Global secondments are staff exchanges between member firms that foster relationships and enhance cross-border working methods among those firms. They also provide valuable learning experiences and exposure to new cultures for the professionals who participate. Kyle Ellis (Columbus) participated in a six-month exchange with our fellow Crowe Global member firm in the UK. "I’ve always been interested in international business, which is why I started looking into secondments," said Kyle. “My experience in the UK allowed me to expand my professional skills, which I was able to bring back to my job at Crowe.” While in the UK, Kyle primarily performed Audit work for not-for-profit organizations, as well as for clients in healthcare, recruiting, distribution and media. “I gained a broader understanding of our Crowe network and a new perspective on accounting," said Kyle. "I also learned about different industries, new accounting principles and new guidance that I would never have been exposed to in the U.S."
