French connection to strengthen advice team: Mazars
Mazars’ Sydney office has strengthened its international advisory team with the transfer of a partner from Paris.
Sydney managing partner Matthew Ashley said Maximilien Amphoux would help the firm meet increasing demand from local and international clients.
“We are delighted to welcome Max to Australia, he brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our financial advisory division with a proven track record of delivering effective and comprehensive transactions and advisory solutions to clients,” said Mr Ashley.
“He will play a key role in helping our firm continue to meet the growing needs of our local and international clientele.”
Mr Ashley said Mr Amphoux would also help local employees with their understanding of Mazars’ culture.
“Max has a unique multi-disciplinary experience base within Mazars that extends over three continents and almost two decades,” said Mr Ashley.
“He is truly reflective of the client-centric culture within the firm and is a great asset both to our team and our clients.
“Mazars is committed to strengthening its international capabilities and providing clients with the support they need to navigate the business life cycle and financial challenges that come with it.”
Mr Amphoux joined Mazars’ Paris office in 2005 as part of the audit and assurance division where he developed his skills before moving to its financial advisory team and becoming a partner in 2017.
He has provided counsel to clients on acquisition and divestment projects across multiple sectors and has focused on both the buy-side and vendor due diligence projects.
The firm said he had extensive experience in complex carve-out projects, earn-out reviews and purchase price allocation engagements.
Mr Amphoux also led post-acquisition audits for international clients and assisted foreign investors in forensic investigations, with experience leading multicultural teams.
