Crowe Horwath grows 13% across Asia Pacific region to reclaim 6th position


Crowe Horwath in Asia Pacific-one of the fastest growing regions in the world-reported revenues of USD914 million for calendar year ending 31 December 2016, representing a 19% increase at constant exchange rates and a 13% growth on USD conversion rates. This has elevated Crowe Horwath's ranking in Asia Pacific back to the 6th largest professional services network as published by IAB's 2016 World Survey results. This is a move up from our 2015 ranking of 7th on the list.

"We are elated at having regained 6th position in the region," said Yuen Lok Mok, Regional Executive Director of Crowe Horwath International for Asia Pacific. "This has only been possible with the combined efforts of our 30 plus firms and 13,000 people who have worked hard to place Crowe Horwath where it belongs amongst the leading mid-tier networks. Their relentless focus on delivering lasting value to clients and the business community is clearly evidenced through our many 2016 accomplishments."
