The mid-tier network’s Sydney office has announced a move away from the traditional managing partner model with its latest appointment.
Mazars shakes up leadership model with joint managing partner appointment
Mazars Sydney will now see managing partner Jim Mascitelli work together with Matthew Ashley under a new joint managing partner model.
Mr Mascitelli, who has been at the helm for the past three years, said the move towards a joint managing partner structure will enable “greater transparency” across the firm and allow the firm to grow.
“The role of managing partner requires not only an operational aspect, but also one that can actively adhere to the requirements of the continued growth of our clients and the firm,” Mr Mascitelli said.
“By sharing the responsibilities of managing partner, Matthew and I can devote substantial time to understand and acclimate to the varying requirements of our continued growth, ensuring that client satisfaction is our top priority.”
The appointment of Mr Ashley as joint managing partner comes two decades after he first joined Mazars as a cadet in 2001.
He made partnership in 2011, leading the accounting and outsourcing division, and currently holds positions on the Mazars Asia-Pacific Board and its Australian National Board.
Commenting on the accounting network’s decision to move to a joint management model, Mr Ashley said it was part of the firm’s client-centric approach as it embraces new service offering and technologies to grow its client base.
“In this ever-changing world of business, we need to ensure that we have our finger on the pulse to have a clear perspective on the needs of our clients and firm, allowing us to actively adapt and innovate,” he said.
