After 15 years as chairman of the leading international accountancy and consulting network, Moore Global, Richard Moore has announced his decision to step down at the end of 2019.
Andy Armanino, a member of Moore’s Globals board and former chief executive of US-focused accountancy and business consulting firm Armanino , will succeed Moore as chairman of the firm from 1 January 2020.
Starting his career with Arthur Young as an auditor, Armanino joined Armanino in 1989, where he became the youngest partner in the firm’s history.
He said: “It’s a privilege for me to succeed Richard – his grandfather started the original Moore firm in London, more than a century ago, and under Richard’s leadership, Moore Global is now one of the leading networks worldwide.”
During Moore’s period as chairman, which began in 2004, the network has grown its combined revenues from around $600m (£490m) to around USD 3bn (£249bn), extending its global coverage to more than 110 countries.
Commenting on his departure, Moore added: “I am stepping down at a time when our network can face the future with tremendous optimism. We are now an organisation of true global capability, with a reputation for quality and differentiated client service.”
