A global accounting group has ramped up its expansion in Australia with the official launch of two mergers in Brisbane and Melbourne.
Mazars announces local expansion
Mazars Australia has now announced that Hanrick Curran in Brisbane and Cummings Flavel McCormack in Melbourne will join the firm as it looks to build an integrated national practice.
The move follows after Mazars first merged with Sydney and Melbourne-based firm Duncan Dovico in January 2016, followed by international Corality Financial Group in August 2016.
The three offices will provide a breadth of professional services, including audit and assurance, business services, business advisory, HR consulting, superannuation, tax, consulting and infrastructure finance modelling to a range of diverse industry sectors.
“Becoming part of the Mazars group means joining an exceptional global integrated partnership with expertise and colleagues in nearly 90 countries and territories,” said Mazars’ Brisbane managing partner, John Kotzur.
“For our clients, this expansion brings scale, people and insights to help them grow business, understand investment opportunities and capture value from a vibrant global market. There are great opportunities especially in areas such as mining services, agribusiness, infrastructure projects, including energy and water, and real estate, though all our clients will benefit from our broader expertise.”
This integration further strengthens Mazars’ capabilities in the Asia-Pacific region, where the firm now employs over 6,000 professionals across 52 offices and 15 countries and territories.
“Mazars is a strong global partnership that has shown continuous growth and offers both our clients and employees exceptional local and global opportunities,” said managing partner of Mazars in Melbourne, Neil Flavel.
“We will work closely with our partners to concentrate on consistent international collaboration, high-quality services and focus on growing with our clients through new service offerings and opportunities.”
