PKF INTERNATIONAL NETWORK RANKED 12TH IN LATIN AMERICA

A 39% growth in the fee income of PKF International member firms in the Latin America region has propelled the network to 12th in the International Accounting Bulletin (IAB) ranking for the Latin American networks. The growth resulted from the combination of organic growth across the region and a merger between PKF Mexico and a number of former BDO partners and staff to form a new top ten Mexican firm.

PKF INTERNATIONAL NETWORK RANKED 12TH IN JAPAN

PKF International is now ranked 12th in Japan following its recruitment of new member firm PKF Osaka Audit Corporation in 2012. The network’s two member firms reported revenue of JPY 1,381.3m and 135 staff in Tokyo and Osaka. PKF Osaka Audit Corporation is also the fifth largest firm in Japan.

“We are honored to be a recipient of the Sloan Award for the sixth year in a row,” said Kenneth Guidry, CPA, President. “Several years ago, we chose to adopt a ‘people first’ flexible workplace strategy to grow our business without overburdening our team or compromising client service. This strategy has proven to be beneficial as we make adjustments to our business in response to challenges posed by the economy.”
