Mazars, an international tax, audit, and advisory firm, has announced the appointment of Sandy Cowan as a forensic and investigation services partner.
Based in London, Cowan joins the group from fellow accountancy firm Grant Thornton, having risen to the role of director at the company in 2017.
He will focus on Mazars’ 40-strong forensic team in the area of disputes, specialising on international opportunities arising from market uncertainties caused by both Covid-19 and Brexit.
Chris Drewe, partner and head of the forensic and valuation services team at Mazars, said that the group is “delighted” to welcome Cowan to the partnership.
He added: “His expertise, in particular within international arbitration, will be a huge asset to Mazars and our clients.
“I know Sandy strongly believes in putting people at the core of everything he does, an ethos which fits perfectly with the strong focus on employees and clients we have here at Mazars.”
Providing the group with a “wealth” of forensic and investigations experience, Cowan has been accredited with a fellowship of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and the position of accredited counter fraud specialist.
