Our approach to client service excellence and responsiveness to the market has contributed to a year of revenue growth, further reinforcing our position as a recognised leader in the UK for audit, tax advisory and risk services.
As reported in the International Accounting Bulletin World Survey, we saw double-digit revenue growth, as the UK member of Crowe Global. This leap follows our successful global rebrand in 2018 and further increasing our offering across our sectors and service lines to deliver a quality service to our clients, that is seamless and responsive to the market place, wherever they choose to operate.
Crowe Global meanwhile consolidated its position as the eighth largest accounting network in the world, with our network partners also seeing strong performances. As a whole, the network reported increased revenues of 14% to USD 4.3 billion.
Nigel Bostock, Chief Executive at Crowe UK, said:
We keep our clients at the heart of everything we do and it is a testament to the dedication and professionalism of all of our people that we are recognised for the trusted advice we provide.
2018 was a year of many successes for Crowe in the UK. Not only did we celebrate our 175th anniversary as a firm, but we also came together under the one global ‘Crowe’ brand, further strengthening our position as market leaders. These figures published today support our position of operating as a national firm with global reach and local expertise.”
David Mellor, CEO at Crowe Global, said:
The headline figures – in particular double-digit growth across the network – speak for themselves and should be celebrated. We are immensely proud of the work we have done throughout 2018 in a rapidly-evolving marketplace and are already building on those successes as 2019 gets underway.
The past year has been a period of significant change for Crowe and we have sought to position ourselves for continued future growth through investment in our people, as well as in processes and technology. It is pleasing to see the numbers reinforce the positivity we see around the network on a daily basis.”
