Kelly and Partners founder and chief executive Brian Kelly this week announced the firm has joined the TGS Global accounting network.
Mr Kelly said the decision to join was made with clients’ needs in mind.
“As we have grown, so too have our clients," he said. "They are doing business all over the world. Joining the TGS Global network enables us to better service our clients as they grow globally, as well as providing access to global thinking on how to better develop our business to ensure we bring the best possible advice to our clients.
“We are committed to private business owners and supporting them to grow. As we looked globally for a network, TGS Global’s dedication to entrepreneurial small and medium-sized businesses represented a perfect fit with our mission.”
Despite this global outlook, however, Mr Kelly stressed that the firm is still intent on growing within Australia too.
“We continue to look out for like-minded firms to join us and leverage what we have learnt to help private business owners go somewhere,” Mr Kelly said.
According to Kelly annd Partners, TGS member firms are independently owned and share an entrepreneurial approach to their own and to their clients’ business needs.
TGS Global CEO Richard Keyes welcomed the Australian firm to the network, saying the deal will greatly strengthen TGS’ presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
“The dynamism and ambition of Kelly and Partners is truly impressive and we are privileged that they have chosen to join us. A firm of their calibre greatly strengthens our presence in the Asia-Pacific region and I am sure that they will make an exceptional contribution to the development of the network as a whole,” Mr Keyes said.
